Ans: A
With a submersion injury, hypoxia is the primary problem. Therefore, assessment of airway, breathing, and circulation are the priority assessments for which the nurse would institute resuscitative measures. Other assessments such as level of consciousness, vital signs, and papillary response would be done once the child's airway, breathing, and circulation are assessed and emergency interventions are instituted.
