Emergency medicine is the medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of unforeseen illness or injury in patients of any age group. The practice of emergency medicine includes the initial evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of any patient requiring expeditious medical or surgical care with the coordination of care among multiple providers. The scope and reach of emergency medicine are not restricted to the hospital alone but can be utilised in prehospital situations, patient extrication, medical aid during natural and man-made disasters, transport of critically ill patients by land ambulances, fixed wing aircrafts and helicopters.
