  A 45-year-old male unrestrained driver is brought to the ED with cervical spine precautions by an EMT unit after a high-speed MVA. He has a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score of 6 and no obvious signs of trauma. His shallow respirations are being inadequately assisted with a bag-valve mask. Radial pulse is thready, and the extremities are cool. Which of the following should be performed before rapid sequence intubation (RSI)?

(A) A brief neurologic examination including a check of rectal tone
(B) An immediate chin lift to clear the airway from any obstruction
(C) A full set of vital signs
(D) A lateral cervical spine x-ray
(E) Four quick tidal volume breaths with 100 percent oxygen using a bag-valve mask device
