Help Standing Vs Sitting in Emergency CS cases

Hi all....I heard that in the emergency cases the examinee should not sit down and should keep standing while taking the Hx.

1) is that right?
2) what defines an emergency case?
is it what's written on the doorway "a pt comes to the ER ..."?

Yes. Correct. You should be standing in emergency cases.

Yes. Correct. You'll know that the patient is an ER case from the doorway information.

Generally speaking, you have to be standing in ER cases as the patient is in acute distress and there's no time to sit and relax.

It is better if you stand in such cases. Emergency cases - post RTA, siezures, blackouts, acute chest pain, LOC.
sometimes they mention it in the doorway information but most of the times it is for you to figure out.
