I am unconscious, I've been in a terrible accident and I am in a rural area in the United States. Who decides whether I should be flown to the nearest city or taken to the local rural hospital that may not be equipped to handle my emergency? [more inside]
My 58 year old dad has been having a squeezing pain in his heart. It has happened a few times, and then just goes away. He went to the emergency room, got a lot of tests done including the stress test, and they determined that his heart is healthy. He has healthy blood pressure and has a manual labor job, and so gets a lot of exercise. The doctor said it might be stress. Does anyone have experience with this? My dad is ready to just try to relieve his stress, but I am worried that it could be something else that the doctor may not have picked up on. Any solutions, including alternative medicine? Thank you!
