DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY MEDICINE

 

At Manipal, Emergency Physicians are highly educated and have training that crosses different medical specialities to meet demanding challenges. They are assisted by well-trained emergency nurses. As soon as a patient enters the department he/she is examined by a triage nurse and allotted to a zone depending on how serious he/she is. The very serious patients are immediately seen by a doctor. Patients with life-threatening conditions or those with time-critical conditions like heart attack, stroke or major accidents are managed in a separately dedicated zone called the Resuscitation Bay. The patients are shifted directly to this bay without having to wait and the doctors and nurses shall immediately get to assess and start interventions to stabilize the patient. It's here that the patients are put on ventilators, the chest is compressed and shocks delivered in an attempt to start a heart that has stopped beating, broken limbs are splinted and bleeding controlled. Special venous lines are secured and medications to improve the heart's pumping and improve blood pressure are started.
