UPCOMING & RECENT ACTIVITIES
Elderly patients have unique characteristics that warrant special attention when it comes to providing emergency care. They commonly suffer from falls which result in significant morbidities such as head injuries and fractures. In this issue, we discuss trauma in the elderly patient and how to provide first aid for an elderly person who has fallen. This month, we also join the world in marking ‘World Stroke Day’ and the ‘World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims’ emphasizing the need for early intervention for stroke patients and post-crash victims to reduce their morbidity and mortality. As always, thank you for keeping it EMKF!
Prehospital emergency care is provided by emergency medical services (EMS) responders, who are the initial health care providers at the scene of an accident, disaster or any emergency situation. Watch as our expert providers explore and explain in detail what happens in prehospital emergency care.
