Answer

Primary assessment of airway, breathing, and circulation takes precedence.

Few studies have evaluated the utility of most first aid.

The utility of negative pressure extraction devices has not been evaluated for scorpion stings.

Perform endotracheal intubation and vascular access as needed.
