Arrow A 5-year old girl with poisoning

A 5-year old girl is brought to the ED in December by her mother who complains that her daughter seems confused. The mother reports that her daughter has complained of intermittent headaches since the two of them moved into the first floor of an older apartment building 6 months ago. The mother has been at home with the daughter for the past 24 hours and the girl appears lethargic and is complaining of joint aches, nausea, and a headache. Her pulse is 120/min, blood pressure is 130/85 mm Hg, and respiratory rate is 25/min with an oxygen saturation of 100% by pulse oximeter. The girl’s mother also notes having a slight headache that started this past day. Which of the following diagnostics should be most rapidly pursued?

(A) Arterial blood gas
(B) CT scan of the head
(C) Direct laryngoscopy
(D) ECG
(E) Toxicology screen
