Found resource very eye opening. Made you realise how a patient can deteriorate quickly. Reinforced importance of continually monitoring patients and reporting any minor changes as it can be fatal for the patient. I will continue to update clinical assessment in different area of specialties to be able to assess different patient presentations.
