ATI RN PROCTORED: Nursing Care of Children 2 2019 Exam – STUDY GUIDE 1. A nurse in an emergency department is caring for a 4-year-old child who has burns to the neck and face following a house ... fire. Which of the following actions should the nurse take first? A. Cover the child's wounds with a clean, dry cloth. B. Establish IV access for the child with a large-bore catheter. C. Provide reassurance to the child's parents. D. Determine the child's breathing pattern. Determine the child's breathing pattern. The nurse should apply the ABC priority setting framework. This framework emphasizes the basic core of human functioning: having an open airway, being able to breathe in adequate amounts of oxygen, and circulating oxygen to the body's organs via the blood. An alteration in any of these can indicate a threat to life, and is therefore the nurse's priority concern. When applying the ABC priority setting framework, airway is always the highest priority because the airway must be clear and open for oxygen exchange to occur. Breathing is the second highest priority in the ABC priority setting framework because adequate ventilatory effort is essential in order for oxygen exchange to occur. Determining the child's breathing pattern is the first action the nurse should take. Circulation is the third highest priority in the ABC priority setting framework because delivery of oxygen to critical organs only occurs if the heart and blood vessels are capable of efficiently carrying oxygen to them.
