Emergency Medicine Services

Emergency Medicine is a field of medical practice based in the knowledge and skills required for the prevention, diagnosis and management of acute and urgent aspects of illness and injury affecting patients of all age groups with a full spectrum of undifferentiated physical and behavioral disorders. It further encompasses an understanding of the development of pre-hospital and in-hospital emergency medical systems and the skills necessary for this development. It also includes the management of trauma resuscitation, advanced cardiac life support, advanced airway management, poisonings, pre-hospital care and disaster preparedness.

Emergency physicians require a broad knowledge base and possess the skills of many specialists - the ability to manage a difficult airway (Anesthesia), suture a complex laceration (Plastic Surgery), reduce a fractured bone or dislocated joint (Orthopedic Surgery), treat a heart attack (Internist), deliver a baby (Obstetrics and Gynecology), stop a bad nosebleed (ENT), manage suicide attempts and complex overdoses (Psychiatry & Toxicology), tap a septic joint (Rheumatology), protect an abused child (Pediatrics), and place a chest tube (Cardiothoracic Surgery).

  • Acute respiratory infections
