Emergency medicines and trauma care

The two are indispensible and important in preventing casualties turning into fatalities especially in cases of those who meet with tragicaccidents on roads . Their number increases with the passing of each year which not only being a challenge also raises many questions .We know most of such victims of unforeseen circumstances succumb to their grievous injuries as immediate treatment in the form of providing emergency medicines and trauma centre facilities are either not available or the personnel manning small health centres and hospitals were not adequately trained and having the requisite knowledge.

Venkaiah Naidu , while speaking at the 10th Asian Conference of Emergency Medicine, has opined strongly for the need to include emergency medicine and trauma care in the curriculum of undergraduate medical courses in the country.
