Doc said bladder infection. kept him over night. gave him morphine for was. he was allergic. so they gave him Narcan to wake him up. had his heart rate at 200 an hour later he died from an enlarged heart (his heart exploded). Should I talk to an Attorney?

I don't believe you! If what you say really happened then you would not have asked the questions you have in the last few hours in the manner that you did. If you had a son and he had an allergic reaction to morphine, Narcan would not do a thing to reverse it. Narcan competes for opiate receptors and will reverse the sedative and respiratory depressive effects but not the immune response. Why you decided to make up a story like this is a mystery to me but you need to find a new hobby. Your story makes no sense to anyone that has ever spent 5 minutes working in an ER! Stick to your Halloween questions.

My healthy (I thought) 25 year old son just suddenly died. It appears he had an enlarged heart and something with one of the blood supplying arteries? but also that part of his heart was discolored. I am desperate to know why they did not open his chest to try and get his heart beating?

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
