Case 12 introduces a 45-year-old man who is brought to the emergency department. He reports a 36-hour history of midepigastric pain that has gradually increased in severity so that it is now 10 out of 10 with 10 being maximal pain. The pain is constant and radiates to his back. There are no exacerbating features, but the pain is slightly relieved by lying still.
