Department Of Emergency Medicine

Emergency Medicine is responsible for acute illness, injury, or mass disaster. It has a large treatment area across all clinical areas. Also it offers professional cares of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, shock, and intoxication. Emergency Medicine has some traits. First, it is different from outpatient and inpatient cares which are classified by disease types; Emergency Medicine is responsible for cares which take place only in the emergency department. Second, it is different from other divisions that mainly concern about diseases; Emergency Medicine concentrates on the places and the situations. These traits can be seen in the cases of mass disasters, when the division classifies and cares patients. Third, it is not only the medical division but also the emergency medical system so it is a part of the social safety net. These traits can be seen from operations and supervisions of emergency classes such as 119 Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) class, fire schools, or public lifesaving educations.
