Cardiologist 's  Response
Sorry to say the prognosis may be bad. Unstable angina is the major threat. She is in SHOCK. There are several inter-related problems in this situation - for example, fluid resuscitation for diarrhoea may be complicated by heart failure. She needs invasive monitoring. But it is not hopeless - there IS a chance to come round
God bless her
Good luck
