Emergency Medicine Clinics
Emergency Medicine Clinics is a scholarly journal that updates medical practitioners on the latest trends and treatment options in emergency medicine. Published four times a year, each issue focuses on a specific topic in emergency medicine. This includes cardiac emergencies, pediatric emergencies, neurological emergencies, thoracic and orthopedic emergencies, trauma, and other emergency conditions. These articles can provide up to 60 AMA Category 1 credits. In addition to promoting health care, these articles offer real-world solutions to patients in need. First, patients should check in with the emergency department's medical staff. During this check-in process, the staff will ask the patient to provide certain information and discuss their needs. The medical staff will then determine the level of care they will provide. This includes determining what kind of treatment the patient will require, how long they will need to be hospitalized, and when they might be discharged. In addition to emergency medicine, urgent care clinics provide a full range of medical services. Many centers are equipped with labs and X-rays, and some are adding more advanced diagnostic equipment. Most urgent care clinics are staffed by physicians and are designed to treat serious illnesses and injuries quickly. It is estimated that approximately 40 percent of patients who visit hospital ERs don't need high-level emergency care. Emergency medicine clinics must meet federal and state licensing requirements. In addition to providing emergency care services, emergency medicine clinics must meet strict guidelines for proper staffing and equipment.
