REBEL Core Cast – Basics of EM – AMS

Take Home Points

  • Walk in – decide sick/not sick
  • Do I need help now? If so, call in the troops
  • Stable – start asking questions – A LOT OF THEM
  • Investigate – reach out to family, bystanders, EMS, PMD, pharmacy
  • Perform a head to toe exam – check the jiblets and scan the bladder for retention
  • Cast a wide net of tests, this is no the time to be stingy with your orders
  • Never discharge if their not back to their baseline
