18th August 2017: Its not easy to understand how emergencies and urgent care for patients are sent out for help. Very often medical emergencies could occur at remote parts of the world or in places where healthcare is poor or unavailable. What are the processes and steps that takes place when there is an emergency?
Doctors are on call and working around the clock in hospitals. But there are also doctors who also stay awake in call centres waiting to receive urgent calls from patients world wide. Everything gets into action and help is immediately dispatched to the patient. Detail medical information and accurate type of medical care has to be decided and the receiving hospital and doctors are alerted.
It was a fruitful visit to the International SOS office in KL Sentral today with a group of specialist from my hospital.
