Prehospital Care

In cases of incidentally noted priapism in the context of trauma or other injury, patients should be stabilized and resuscitated per local emergency medical services (EMS) protocol. If there is priapism without localized genitourinary trauma, first responders should have an increased suspicion for potential spinal cord injury and immobilize the patient accordingly. In cases of isolated priapism without other injury or complaint, prehospital care should be directed at patient comfort and should not delay transportation to the ED for definitive care.
