You have just seen a 68-year-old male in A & E who presented with mild abdominal and flank pain. His observations are: BP 120/80, HR 78, O2 saturation 99% on room air, temperature 37.2 degrees and a RR of 15. He has several risk factors for a AAA including COPD and a family history on his father’s side. You notice on the scan result that this gentleman has an abdominal aorta diameter of 4cm. You refer him to the regional vascular service. How soon should this gentleman be seen?
