  • Wheezing or breathing difficulties

  • Vomiting or diarrhea for more than 24 hours

  • Unconsciousness and an inability to wake up

  • Injuries from blunt force trauma, such as suspected broken bones

  • Blood in vomit, urine, or stool

  • Swollen abdomen

  • Sudden disorientation and confusion
