Emergency medicine is a medical specialty involving care for undifferentiated, unscheduled patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention. This is currently attaining prime focus of research in medicinal research. Currently, worldwide, there are more than 100 countries involved in the processes of emergency medicine development. There is consensus that a standardized international Emergency Medicine curriculum is needed for efficient research.
Emergency medicines are used in case of instant medical need of a patient. Internal medicine or general medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists or physicians in Commonwealth nations. Emergency Internal Medicine is one of the important area of emergency care, where during recovery phase along with emergency medicine, which kind of medicine should be taken and how it should be associated with other medication. In research view of internal medicine we should also keep more focus on combination of medicine and long term and short term side effect of medicines.
Emergency drugs are those which are classified under this category because they are needed immediately, like in case of cardiac arrest and hypersensitivity. These dosages also should be designed and can only be taken with a proper guidance of a medical practitioner. There is list of medicine available in this category. Generally, the goal of using emergency drugs is to prevent the patient from deteriorating to an arrest situation. This article helps nurses who don’t work in ICUs or EDs to understand emergency drugs and their use. And these are one of the important part in setting up emergency medicine or care department.
Rural Emergency medicine is a much needed concern for every country, in developing countries where majority of population stays in rural area and do not have very good medical resources, it is of prime concern. For this you need to have plenty of facilities and expert professional specialized in emergency and regular medicine. Hospitals are focused on improving postdischarge services for older adults, such as early follow-up care after hospitalization to reduce readmissions and unnecessary emergency department (ED) use. Rural Medicare beneficiaries face many barriers to receiving quality care, but little is known about their postdischarge care and outcomes.
A professional in field of emergency medicine must know all the Clinical Procedures in Emergency Medicine, it may relate to diagnosis or treatment of patients who needs emergency care and should have knowledge about radiology, medicine and emergency care. Emergency medical services (EMS) require the active involvement and participation of physicians. Furthermore, every out-of-hospital service that provides any level of life support or expanded scope service must have an identifiable physician medical director at the local level as well as at the regional or state level to ensure quality patient care. Various clinical procedures are involved in treatment based on type of emergency.
When an emergency problem ocured that necessitates immediate care, it is often hard to assess if it is truly an emergency, or an urgent medical issue. If it is an emergency, patient immediately needs to be shifted in a medical facility, while if it is an urgent medical issue emergency medicine and care is needed. Hospitalization of patient may not be needed. Emergency care and medicine both are inter-related and sometimes emergency care only involves proper medication and intensive care, while in some cases it may needs proper medical attention, along with surgiacal procedure based on complications associated with emergency condition of patient.
Anti-inflammatory drugs are the substance that suppresses or inhibits inflammatory responses of an allergic, bacterial, traumatic and anaphylactic origin or in other words can be described as agents that control or reduce inflammation. . An anti-inflammatory drug includes corticosteroids. Anti-inflammatory drugs are sometimes combined with anti-biotic drugs. Anti-inflammatory drug journals deals with the drugs that are used to reduce inflammation.
Phytochemicals are non-essential nutritive plant material that consists of protective and disease preventive properties. They are found in fruits, vegetables, grains and other parts of the plant. There are number of Phytochemicals each work differently. Few of the functions of phytochemicals are antioxidant, hormonal action, anti-bacterial effect, etc. most of the food contains Phytochemicals except foods such as sugar and alcohol. Phytochemicals journals covers the topics related to nutritive plant material.
Regenerative medicine is area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair. Regenerative Medicine is a branch of translational research in Tissue Engineering and Molecular Biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. Regenerative medicine is a very broad, new approach to medicine which uses the advances in stem cell technology, primarily, to advance clinical care. And what that really converts into is that instead of treating chronic diseases with drugs that have a short-term effect and that need to be continued long term as a consequence, we can think in terms of regenerative medicine of solutions to problems.
Immunotherapy is a medical term as Treatment of disease by inducing, enhancing or suppressing an immune response. It is designed to elicit or amplify an immune response are classified as Activation Immunotherapies and also reduce, suppress or more appropriately direct an existing immune response, as in cases of autoimmunity or allergy, are classified as Suppression Immunotherapies. The active agents of immunotherapy are collectively called immunomodulators. They are a diverse array of recombinant, synthetic and natural preparations, often Cytokines.
Preventive care includes the measures or steps taken for prevention of disease as opposed to disease treatment. Preventive care strategies are typically described as taking place at the primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention levels.Preventive Medicine focuses on the health of individuals, communities, and defined populations. Its goal is to protect, promote, and maintain health and well-being and to prevent disease, disability, and death. Preventive medicine specialists are licensed medical doctors (MD) or doctors of ostheopathy (DO), who possess core competencies in biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental and occupational medicine, planning and evaluation of health services, management of health care organizations, research into causes of disease and injury in population groups, and the practice of prevention in clinical medicine. They apply knowledge and skills gained from the medical, social, economic, and behavioral sciences.
Primary care is the daily health care given by a physician. Primary care is usually given by primary care physician, a nurse, or a physician assistant. In some localities such a professional may be a registered nurse, a pharmacist, a clinical officer, or a Ayurvedic or other traditional medicine professional. Primary care means frontline care, and it can come from doctors (family physicians, internists, or pediatricians), physician assistants, or nurse practitioners. Primary care clinicians are the quarterbacks of patient care. They make sure that their patients and their issues don’t fall through the cracks of our increasingly confusing health care system.
Critical care or Intensive care medicines includes the treatment for people with serious injuries and illness. It also includes the complex situations of accidents, surgeries, infections and severe breathing problems. Critical care usually takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU) or trauma center. Intensive care units (ICU), also called critical care or intensive therapy departments, are sections within a hospital that look after patients whose conditions are life-threatening and need constant, close monitoring and support from equipment and medication to keep normal body functions going.
