A quick overview of the ABCDE assessment, i.e. primary medical assessment for advanced life support. Being confronted with an acutely ill patient can be stressful. By going through your ABC's you'll have a structure that will help you help the patient. I'd advise any doctor to take an official course, it will make you more confident, and it's also a lot of fun.
In airway, please check C-spine and stabilise the neck if necessary.
