When emergency care is required


The issue of emergency care arises in cases of severe, critical conditions that are accompanied by or related to: pain, respiratory and/or cardiac disorders, loss of consciousness, allergic reactions, injuries, bleeding, fever, poisoning.

Emergency medical care is provided at different stages (pre-medical, pre-hospital), and inpatient care is qualified, specialized and highly specialized.

Emergency care is usually performed using specialized tools and technologies, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, intensive care under the control of monitors of cardiac electrical activity, blood oxygen saturation and other instrumental and laboratory indicators, if necessary. This allows the doctor to accurately determine the nature of the disorder and provide appropriate emergency medical care. Special equipment allows medical interventions to be performed with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.

Timely and properly provided emergency medical care allows patients to return to normal life and maintain or restore its quality.

At the Valikhnovski Surgery Institute, we specialize in addressing a variety of issues, including: Get acquainted

    Preparation for emergency care includes general principles of preparation for medical interventions: Get acquainted
    img img

    if you are taking any medications, inform your doctor and agree with him/her (it may be necessary to limit them or change the dosage or regimen)

    follow the doctor's prescriptions regarding diet, water and drinking regime and do not drink alcoholic beverages - so that the body reacts more adequately and predictably to the measures taken

    immediately before providing emergency care –

    - remove removable objects (piercing jewellery, dentures) from the mouth and face to prevent them from accidentally getting into the respiratory system or interfering with diagnostic and treatment measures during medical care;
    - remove other items (contact lenses, hearing aids, jewellery, etc.) to prevent accidental injury to the body and to prevent them from deteriorating
    - remove cosmetic products (make-up, nail polish, false nails) from the body to facilitate visual assessment of the body condition and automated registration with the help of medical equipment
    - change into special clothes

    In addition, other preparatory measures may be taken, taking into account individual characteristics of the body and the specifics of the medical intervention.

    How the emergency care is performed


    The main stages:

    img img
    • 1
      The patient is either wheeled

      to the intensive care unit, surgery or intensive care either on a gurney or escorted on foot. At the gateway, they put on a medical cap and shoe covers (to protect against microorganisms entering the air of the operating room)

    • 2
      Resuscitation and surgical operations

      are performed by a team of specialists of a certain composition, taking into account the specifics of each case

    • 3
      The patient is placed on a functional bed

      or operating table (depending on the specifics of the clinical situation, the body position may vary), and secured to it with special straps to prevent accidental spontaneous movements that would interfere with emergency measures, as well as to prevent accidental falls

    • 4
      They provide access to blood vessels for infusions,

      install a catheter to administer the necessary drugs, place electrodes on the body, put a blood pressure cuff on the shoulder and a sensor on the finger to determine the oxygen content in the blood, etc. All this is necessary for continuous monitoring of the body's condition during emergency care

    • 5
      The further course of action depends on the specific task,

      the area of the body where the intervention is carried out, and the specifics of the chosen tactics, techniques



    Period after emergency care and rehabilitation

    After emergency treatment, the patient is placed in an intensive care unit for resuscitation, intensive care and observation. If necessary, oxygen may be administered through a thin tube to ensure that the body has enough oxygen. The nurse will carefully monitor the patient’s condition and, if necessary, administer medications agreed with the doctor.

    Before the patient returns home, the doctor will examine the patient, agree on the tactics of further rehabilitation, and give additional advice.
