Dr. Lake-Bakaar and the team at EVS is conducting a clinical study on diuretics and Chance is our first participant! He came into our hospital yesterday for increased coughing and respiratory effort. Our ER Doctor found that his mild heart murmur had worsened, and he was diagnosed with mitral regurgitation a condition that affects heart valve and congestive heart failure (fluid buildup in the lungs). After oxygen and proper medication, he is doing much better and we’ll get to see this cuddle bug for frequent rechecks.
Our hospital is so excited to start conducting research while also treating our amazing patients!
