Emergency Medical Technology is a specialty of medicine that deals with delivering medical care in times of emergency such as fires, accidents, and natural disasters. It includes emergency medical response, disaster preparedness, and medical control planning, oversight, and management. The emergency department handles life-threatening injuries, medical conditions, and circumstances that require quick, emergent, or immediate attention. The continual care of a patient who is critically ill or requires advanced care is referred to as Critical Care Medicine. Professionals in Emergency Medicine support to diagnose and manage life-threatening and critical conditions such as heart attacks, asthma attacks, fractures, strokes, overdoses, and accident-related injuries.
Those who choose a career in emergency medicine have a bright future ahead of them, as various institutes across the country are in critical need of competent and experienced emergency medical technologists. Emergency Medicine professionals are in high demand in many areas of healthcare. They may choose to collaborate with private hospitals, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), peacekeeping operations, government hospitals, and educational institutions.
