    Case study B: Emergency Department
    Rupa Deepak, 37, presents to your emergency department with small scratch on her left wrist from a rusty nail. The wound appeared inflamed and Rupa tells you that she and grandfather-in-law were sorting through an old crate of junk that was to be sold at a vintage fair when she injured her wrist on the nail. Thinking nothing of it she put a band aid on the injury and continued sorting the crate. In the days that followed, Rupa’s husband reported that she has developed a cold, it got rapidly worse, and when he returned home late after working he found her sick in bed and as “cold as ice”. At first, he thought she had “pneumonia or something”.
    On examination, you note that Rupa was also experiencing shivering and muscle pain, her skin was a bit mottled, her speech had become a bit slurred and she did appear confused at times.
