Here it goes, also all the medics here are at least EMT-I, with a few military medics thrown in...
You arrive to the scene of an Humvee accident. A female Command Sergeant Major has lost control of her vehicle and driven into a ravine at a slow rate of speed. She is complaining of chest pain, and skin is cool, moist, and pale. She is having difficulty breathing. Your first assessment, you find a seat belt imprint on her chest.
Her vital signs are B/P 178-90, HR 104, R 22, and pulse oximetry is 95%.
She has numbness and tingling down her left arm
Age: 55 years old
Prior history: she tells you she hurt her back a week ago
How do you treat this patient?
