Which of the following patients should be seen first? A. a 27 year old woman with Crohn's disease states that she has blood in her stool B. a 16 year old girl who is 32 weeks pregnant complaining of severe back pain C. a 46 year old man who complains of unilateral leg pain and swelling D. a 58 year old man with chest pain
The answer is D. The 58 year old man with chest pains should be seen first to get an ECG to determine if he is having a STEMI. While unilateral leg pain and swelling indicates a DVT, it is not the first priority (C). The best way to determine who should be seen first is by using your ABC's (airway, breathing, circulation) in that order. It may also be helpful to ask yourself, who could die first if they do not receive help or intervention?
