In brief: Head trauma
In the er patient is quickly assessed, stabilized with regards to blood pressure, pulse rate, blood transfusion if blood needed- most important airway maintainance.
After stabilization the patient is sent to radiology for necessary ct scans. Meanwhile a neurosurgeon is called if available.
