Telangana State lags in emergency medicine
Though the elective medical treatment and surgery in state-run hospitals in Telangana is found to be encouraging, courtesy of various steps and initiatives taken up by the TRS government, a lot needs to be done as far as emergency medicine is concerned. No state-run hospital in the state has such a department although they have many different broad and super-specialities. Part of this problem is also related to the lack of presence of PG (Emergency Medicine) course in state-run medical colleges.
Patients of grievous injuries to their head or any part of the body could be saved if given proper treatment in the golden hour. In emergency medicine, “Golden Hour” refers to the immediate one-hour time period following a traumatic injury, during which, chances of preventing death by way of prompt medical treatment are the highest.
