Take arterial blood gas
Patients with impaired consciousness are randomised into having analysed a arterial blood gas.
Other: With arterial blood gas, parameters not being normal can be corrected
If arterial blood gas is analysed answers provide the possibility to make more accurate diagnosis and treat specific abnormal parameters (e.g. electrolytes, oxygenation and so forth).
Do not take arterial blood gas
Patients with impaired consciousness are randomised into not having analysed a arterial blood gas.
- Diagnostic accuracy [ Time Frame: 220 patients in 1.5 year ]Will there be fewer observational diagnosis
- Doctor satisfaction [ Time Frame: 220 patients in 1.5 year ]Did the doctor find the arterial gas or lack of it affected the treatment and diagnosis
