Some Facts about Emergency Medicine
Emergency Medicine is NOT CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE
Emergency Medicine is not MEDICAL EMERGENCIES
There is no concept by NMC called ED-ICU. ICU Beds in ED are Holding beds for the ICU Team till ICU Beds become available if they are Full. ED ICU Beds are under control of ICU not ED Specialists.
The Operation Theater in ED is only for Life Saving Surgeries like Life Threatening Trauma Bleed, Thoracotomy, Traumatic Thorax & Abdomen Exploration in Unstable Patients only.
Acute Life Saving Vascular Injury Repair is for ED OT.
Elective Surgeries like Gall Bladder, Appendectomy, Ex- Lap, Fracture repair and many where patients are not actively dying don’t need the ED Operating Room.
Emergency Medicine Faculty Need to have a firm understanding of Operations Management.
A Stagnant ED is not an ED for Post Graduate Training nor is an ED which is No Process Management System or Processes Written, Regulated and accounted.
