House's Team

3.03 Informed Consent

Initial Symptoms: Man with respiratory distress
Diagnosis: Amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis (Chase)

Contributions by Team
House (5): Tells Cameron to remove fluid from lungs, injects patient with epinephrine to test heart, notices lung scarring on MRI, notices nerve damage in right side, confirms amyloidosis
Chase (2): Diagnosis for amyloidosis, insists problem is in the heart and not the lungs
Cameron (0): None
Foreman (0): None

Notes: House should have ordered an echocardiogram and not an exercise stress EKG. Since this was never mentioned in the episode, it's assumed that it was a mistake by the writers and not the character and House doesn't receive an error for it.
Chase received an error for collapsing the patient's lungs during a lung biopsy.
I'd like to give Cameron a credit for fulfilling House's promise to euthanize the patient, but since killing your patients isn't considered part of medical care in New Jersey it wouldn't be appropriate. (No, I'm not being sarcastic).
