The answer is 2
Rationales:
1. Blunt trauma is defined as an injury in which the skin integrity is not disturbed. If this patient's injuries are limited to blunt trauma, suture kits will not be required.
2. Because the forces of blunt trauma are transferred to the tissues involved, deformation is likely. Radiologic studies are necessary to determine the presence of broken bones and other injuries.
3. Dressings and bandages are not the priority because skin integrity is not disturbed in blunt trauma.
4. A chest tube drainage tray may be required, but it is not clear if that is the case in this situation.
