An 8 year old boy was seen in the Emergency Room with a 5 day history of fever and coughing up blood. At least twice a day he had coughed up "jelly" like clots and his stools were dark. He tired more easily, felt dizzy and also reported his heart was beating harder.

Over the last 6 months he had on a few separate occasions brought up blood tinged sputum whilst unwell with upper respiratory tract infections.

What else would you like to ask about in the history?
