When a situation arises where patient history and physical assessment of a suspected diabetic patient is unclear, you should:
  1. Not get concerned; the history and physical assessment are not important for these particular patients.
  2. Consult with medical direction prior to treatment.
  3. Discuss the situation with your partner and proceed with patient treatment.
  4. Disregard the history and proceed with patient treatment.
Answer: B - You should always consult medical direction when uncertain about physical assessment and history of a suspected diabetic patient. The EMT-P should consider all aspects of patient care and assessment. If things become unclear, disregard for the ambiguous nature of the patient or discussion with your partner is not appropriate.
