Oscar is assessed

Ok so it looks like he stopped fitting now. So we’ll do a complete reassessment of the obs.
He’s got a good radial.
I’m just going to open your eye, here we go. Nice and still. Well done.
Keep an eye on his resp rate as well see what that’s going at. his pupils are reacting, which is good. I’ll just count the resp rate here.
His resp rate is slowing, it’s about 4 so I’ll get the BVM out.

Here we see Oscar being assessed after having been given diazepam. Does anyone have any comments on the assessment they have seen?
