The emergency is the life threatening situation between Life and Death where every second counts and it requires immediate response to save one’s life. In such situations, the speedy arrival of an emergency ambulance with paramedics could mean the difference between life and death for a seriously injured or ill person.
The pre-hospital care during life-threatening situations is a neglected issue in India. Although emergency medical services have improved in India by providing common emergency ambulance number 102/108, the practice of emergent care has remained stagnant, with few private hospitals not admitting emergency cases to avoid dealing with medico-legal formalities during emergencies. This problem was solved to some extent when judicial system passed the law to provide emergency care to the victim by any & every hospital regardless of patient’s income and medical legal status during an emergency. Failure to provide medical treatment in such emergency by any hospital could lead to a violation of the patient’s “Right to Life,” under Article 21.
Many of the medical emergencies like heart attack, stroke, and accidents recovery depend upon the how quickly you get medical care. The lack of medical attention at the time of trauma is leading to nearly 27% deaths in India annually. Thus, India requires better emergency medical services to survive and meet the growing emergency counts.
Today, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), private hospitals and Volunteer organizations in cities have come with their own EMS(Emergency Medical Services) setups mainly with the aim of saving precious lives during emergency situations & to provide pre-medical care within 10-15 minutes of an emergency to increase the chance of survival.
According to experts, thousands of these accident victims could have been saved if timely medical intervention were available to them. Thus, the need of quality EMS (Emergency medical services) in India is an unmet need for the masses.
Here are few emergencies that require immediate medical attention to save the causalities life.
► Crushed injuries/ vehicle accidents.
► Drowsiness or unconsciousness.
► Choking or Difficulty in breathing.
► Severe chest pain, heart attack or cardiac arrest.
► Fractures or broken bones.
► Deep cuts or wounds with profuse bleeding.
► Severe Head injuries.
► Injuries to chest, abdomen, pelvis or spine (neck and backbone).
► Severe Burn & Fall from heights.
