The study of emergency and critical care is an area of direct study of critical patients and their treatment. It is a way to learn dynamic knowledge, as medical students and post studies trainees are exposed directly to the treatment. Medical students and trainees work together with an advisor doctor to administer treatment to a critical patient. In this way they work to deepen their knowledge as well as teach required know-how of medical science.

General Goals

Diagnosis of a critical care patient, and administering tests and treatment. Also, learning required skills for critical care treatment.

A patient is sent to their department after primary diagnosis of an emergency care disease, which requires a high level of specialization and frequent attention. A high level is pursued by asking for feedback from the respective departments.

We have introduced standardized education programs as well in order to learn the know-how which is rarely touched upon in medical case studies.

  1. Critical care treatment for a severe patient acute respiration dysfunction, acute circulation dysfunction, shock, critical infection, severe infection, vascular disease.
  2. Primary and critical care of a tertiary disease. Cardiopulmonary arrest, acute poisoning, burn, environmental insult, external injury.
  3. Complete body control of preoperative period. Post-surgery control, evaluation of a patient before surgery.
  4. Emergency care treatment related Off-Job Training. Basic life support and advanced cardiac life support(BLS,ACLS). Triage training of disaster treatment etc.


Short seminars are conducted twice a week to enhance pathological understanding, from basic to specialized one. (60 minutes each).

Disease discussion meet

A discussion meet is called once a week regarding admitted patients and their diseases. Also, in order to deepen knowledge learned, a journal club is conducted once in a week.

Attaining goals

After understanding the state of the disease of a critical patient, a proper medical treatment is administered. The techniques required for that are to be acquired.

  1. Learning knowledge pertaining to airway management, mask-to-face ventilation, and intubation technique.
  2. Learning the application of mechanical ventilation.
  3. Learning the knowledge and techniques required for intravenous catheter insertion and arterial puncture.
  4. Understanding and applying cardiovascular agents. Learning the methods of circulation assistance.
  5. Understanding and learning to apply acute blood purification methods, and the making and application of blood cleansing circuits.
  6. Application of lumbar, thoracic cavity, abdominal puncture.
  7. Learning to administer proper treatment after blood gas sampling and its analysis.
  8. Learning to administer burn treatment.
