A 78-year-old woman was admitted with confusion and odd behaviour that had developed over the preceding day. There was a history of stroke causing left-sided weakness 2 years previously, from which she had made a good recovery, AF, and hypertension. Medication included amlodipine, aspirin, simvastatin, and digoxin. She lived alone in warden-controlled accommodation. Her son reported some cognitive deterioration over the last 2 years such that she required some help with finances and shopping.
