Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine at glance 1st edition 2018
Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine is an innovative and exciting new subspecialty that is saving lives and has great potential to change the way medicine is practised. The sub-specialty has grown exponentially since its inception and has enormous potential to answer research questions that will benefit patients both outside and within the hospital.
Although it has a short history, we must remember that the Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine at glance 1st edition 2018 emerged not only from the ambulance service but also from doctors whom decided to travel to patients on the roadside with limited equipment, in order to deliver whatever care they could.
It is from these humble beginnings that the sub-specialty has developed into the incredibly influential model of care
seen today in modern pre-hospital emergency units. With great admiration and respect, author would like to thank those that developed the concepts that made Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine at glance 1st edition 2018 the force for good that is today.
We must never forget that the practice of Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine is a sacrifice not only for those who deliver care but also for their loved ones who, in turn, care for them. Without family and friends, we would be unable
to deliver the quality of care that is expected in the challenging pre-hospital environment.
We are too quick to forget the partners who wait in the middle of the night for their loved ones to return from road traffic accidents or otherserious incidents to deliver comforting words and understanding. Without them, we couldn’t do what we do.
This Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine at glance 1st edition 2018 book is dedicated to both those who deliver what I like to believe is the ‘bungee jumping’ of medicine, and to those who silently support them in the background.
