Managing the unstable patient. The first 10 minutes often set the course



Managing the unstable patient. The first 10 minutes often set the course



Postgraduate Medicine 105(4): 69

However, a well-led well-organized approach during the first 10 minutes of care can greatly improve the chances of survival and minimize subsequent morbidity. Early treatment should emphasize proper airway management, adequate intravenous access, and a thoughtful approach to the use of medications.
