Medical emergency covers a wide range of treatment in situations when a patient is in need of instant medical care. Such situations may include:
- Heart attack
- Neck/head/brain injuries
- Drug overdose
- Other life threatening conditions or injuries
In addition to being qualified in the field, physicians working in emergency medicine are often skilled in other specialised fields such as ambulatory care, emergency response, surgery, urgent care medicine and emergency room procedures. They generally work in emergency departments within hospitals, intensive care units (ICU) and urgent care clinics in medical centres.
The field of medical emergency demands a high level of quality assurance for the standards of care provided to a patient, as the treatment is often provided at a swift pace under
high pressure and often involves dealing with life threatening conditions or injuries.

Expertise in Action
Experts within the field of emergency medicine are often required in cases that involve injury, illness, or the death of a patient due to substandard emergency treatment, misdiagnosis, malpractice or violations of medical emergency procedures.
Experienced and qualified experts in this field can provide expert opinion on medical emergency procedures and also conduct a medical treatment review of the incident in question.
For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.
The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:
- The need for a view or inspection of a location
- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
