  6. Priority assessment..Respiratory or cardiovascular?

  7. Priority assessment..Respiratory or cardiovascular?

    EricJRN, from what you said, I think I should stick to the original diagnosis typed on the patient's chart. Also, in either case, the priority assessment would be neurological, right? Thank you for...
