About Emergency Medicine
Emergency medicine is the branch of medicine that focuses on the care of patients with acute (short-term) medical conditions or injuries that require immediate attention. Emergency medicine is often provided in hospital emergency departments or in other specialized settings, such as ambulances or helicopters. Emergency medicine physicians are trained to handle a wide range of medical emergencies, including heart attacks, strokes, accidents, and injuries. They work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as nurses and paramedics, to provide rapid and efficient care to patients.
