another quick question! thankyou very much for your replies before...
the Q is 'you walk into a room with your patient tachypnoeic, rubbing their chest and complaining of right sided chest pain and appearing restless..what would the nuse do??
the answers ive got are
*provide O2 therapy
*do an ECG
*take regular observations bp etc
*sit patient upright
*question patient about pain site/intensity
are any of those wrong and does anyone have any other advice?? thanks so much! all your knowledge out there is so great!! hope i can repay the favour some day!!

Aw gee, the first thing I would do is sit them up to hopefully provide some breathing relief, following the ABCs and ask questions while I was doing that but in the multiple choice nclex type quest. I would pick to sit them up.
And yes, I have been introduced to the nursing process but then again I'm a new grad!
What is the answer?
