Emergency medicine is a special field in medicine that deals with illnesses that need immediate medical attention. This encompasses the treatment in emergency situations involving people of all ages, including pediatric, adult and geriatric patients. Moreover, it consists of the treatment of all the body systems, so long as they are involved in causing an immediate danger to the patient.
Advances in protocols regarding the treatment of patients in emergency conditions has helped a lot in improving the statistics concerning the morbidity and mortality of patients handled by emergency medical personnel. However, it is still emphasized that proper referrals after the institution of these protocols are necessary for improving patient stability and recuperation.
