An Emergency Room (ER) physician sees a huge range of medical conditions – no other specialty in medicine sees the variety of conditions that an emergency room sees. This is why at Creta InterClinic we have a team of doctors with broad general medical experience as well as the skills to cope with emergency or critical conditions.
Chest paints, heart attacks, difficulty breathing, asthma attacks, pneumonia, sever abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, strokes, loss of function or numbness in arms or legs, loss of vision, hearing, unconsciousness, altered level of consciousness, fainting, overdoses, food poisoning, severe allergic reactions, complication from diseases, high fevers, sports injuries, broken bones and outs from accidents, burns, car accidents, uncontrolled bleeding and blood when vomiting are some of the conditions that bring patients to Creta InterClinic’s ER.
Upon arrival, a patient is triaged (prioritised), necessary so that a patient with a life threatening condition is not kept waiting because they arrived a few minutes later than someone with more routine problem. It also helps to allay the fears of a patient who assumes he has a life threatening condition, which may, in fact, be less urgent. A nurse records the patient’s vital signs (temperature, pulse, respiratory rate and blood pressure), and also a brief history of the patient’s current medical complaints, past medical problems, medications and allergies determining the appropriate triage category.
The emergency medical physician will get a more detailed medical history about present illness, past medical problems, family history and social history. He will then complete a full physical examination. The most likely diagnosis is then determined by the patient's symptoms and physical examination. If there is not enough information to make a diagnosis from the history and physical examination, then diagnostic tests are required.
When the emergency physician has all the information he can obtain, he makes a determination of the most likely diagnosis. In any event, the patient's condition is stabilized in the ER. This may require the insertion of an intravenous line, or other invasive techniques, depending on the seriousness of the patient's condition. Once stabilized, the patient will either be treated by the ER team and discharged, admitted to Creta InterClinic, transferred to a specialist consultant for further care, or transferred to a more appropriate medical facility.
If the patient is discharged he will receive discharge instructions explaining your medications and other treatments. Medications prescribed may be purchased from a 24 hour pharmacy. You may be referred to an outpatient clinic for follow-up care.
The patient may need to be transferred if the condition is better treated at another institution.
