In the days after my scary event I spent hours and hours thinking through what I had done.   I knew my ABCs, I had prioritized everything I was supposed to, how could things have gone so horribly wrong…   See our full lesson on Prioritization at NURSING.com.   And I realized that I had overlooked a very important part of my ABCs.   It wasn’t the A - airway, the B - breathing, or the C - circulation  What was left, what did I miss?
