Diagnostic Studies

The initial workup should include a WBC count with differential, ESR, CRP, and a blood culture. Xrays, if available, are often useful to exclude trauma. These diagnostic studies can be completed prior to the patient’s arrival in the ED, if the equipment is available, as this may expedite care. Vascular access should be obtained, as the patient may need antibiotics and parenteral pain medication.
