Abstract

Recognition of the patient who has an emergent vascular disorder and the early initiation of simple management steps in the ED can significantly impact patient outcome. The vasculopathic patient presents with significant comorbid conditions and a small window of opportunity to alter the prognosis favorably. The critical role of the EP lies in prompt use of this opportunity and appropriate direction of further care.
