  1. Chest pain began just before the accident causing her to loose control of vehicle, and drive off road down ravine 50 feet, hitting small bumbs and holes on the way down. until coming to rest. steering wheel is not best, and seat belt is still on, when seat belt marks on chest. no prior history of cardiac problems. She started noticing the tingling and breathing problems after she stopped. Prior back injury, seems to be from lifting something to heavy she says, and she did not go to medics to have it checked out, only taking OTC meds for the pain.

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?
