Abdominal Pain Scenario

You are working as part of a double Paramedic crew on an Ambulance when you have a call for a 27-year-old female who is complaining of abdominal pain and a reduced level of consciousness. The call is 15 minutes away and you start blue lighting to scene.

On arrival you are met by the patients’ partner who is very concerned. He advises that his partner has been in pain for the last 12-hours but she wouldn’t go to be seen. She’s now collapsed on the kitchen floor and is crying. As you walk into the kitchen, the patient is sat up on the floor. They look visibly in a lot of pain, have a pale and clammy complexion, and are sobbing to themselves. They are complaining of severe, sharp pain in the hypogastric and pelvic region.
