Intern: Have you ever had any heart trouble that you know about?
Intern: Did you ever have rheumatic or scarlet fever as a child?
Intern: I see here in your previous history that you've never been short of breath on exertion, have slept on one pillow all of your life, never bad swelling of the ankles, nor had to get up during the night to pass your water. Is that all correct?
Intern: Have you noticed any of these symptoms recently?
Patient: No. I haven't.
Intern: Have you ever had any chest pain before?
Patient: No, this is the first time.
Intern: Is there any history of heart disease in your family?
Patient: Yes, my father died of a heart attack, and so did my uncle.
Intern: You said you felt light-headed. Is that right?
Patient: Yes, it is.
Intern: Then you didn't actually experience unconsciousness?
Patient: That's correct.
Intern: I'll be back in a few minutes, and we'll examine you then.
