The Department of Emergency Medicine at Citizens Specialty Hospital caters to patients with emergency medical conditions. The emergency medicine team comprises trained doctors and paramedical staff experienced in advanced trauma life support, advanced cardiac life support, and basic life support.
Advanced patient care facilities are available for patients that reach the hospital in critical condition. As soon as the patient reaches the hospital, the expert doctors diagnose the situation and deliver treatment in the emergency room. If further diagnosis and evaluation are required, the patient is admitted to the hospital. The primary goal of the emergency department is to save lives and stabilize the condition of the patient. Our emergency department has an interdisciplinary approach to patient care, working with other specialties to provide optimal care per the patient’s needs.

Emergency medicine is a medical specialty focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of acute illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention.
The emergency department provides care for a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to heart attacks, strokes, severe injuries, respiratory distress, allergic reactions, infections, and sudden illness.
The emergency room should be visited for life-threatening situations or when prompt medical attention is required. Urgent care centers are suitable for non-life-threatening issues that need immediate attention but aren't emergencies. Primary care doctors can handle routine appointments and manage ongoing health concerns.
Emergency departments offer comprehensive services such as diagnostic testing (X-rays, blood tests), advanced imaging (CT scans), minor surgical procedures (stitching wounds), pain management interventions, resuscitation measures, and access to specialists if needed.
Emergency departments are staffed with healthcare professionals experienced in treating patients of all ages. They have specialized resources and equipment to provide appropriate care for children, elderly individuals, and everyone in between.
The treatment provided to the patients in the emergency department depends upon the severity of the condition. If one patient is treated earlier than the other, it would mean that the patient requires treatment on priority to save his or her life or prevent permanent damage.
It is an important method to determine if the person is suffering from a stroke. It is the acronym for Face, Arm, Speech, and Time.
