* Asthma CCS
 #491109

Got a case of Asthma in office. Was not breathing well so I transfered the pt to ER. But before transfering the pt to ER I started with emergency orders:

oxygen
pulse oxymeter
iv access
card monitor
sit upright

my question is:

Should we do the Focused Phisycal exam in the office before transfering the patient or should we do it in ER after transfering the patient?

Thanks
