Answer

Treatment may require the following:

  • Intravenous (IV) access
  • Oxygen administration
  • Advanced airway techniques
  • Glucose administration
  • Pharmacologic circulatory support
  • Pharmacologic or mechanical restraints
  • Defibrillation or temporary pacing

Advanced triage decisions, such as direct transport to multispecialty tertiary care centers, may be required in select cases.
