Gynecological Emergency

Gynecological emergencies encompass disease conditions affecting the female reproductive system, posing risks to a woman's life, sexual function, and fertility. These emergencies typically manifest as acute abdominal issues, abnormal vaginal bleeding, or a mix of both. They often relate to complications in early pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and problems associated with contraceptives.

  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts

Trauma Resuscitation

Trauma resuscitation involves reviving a critically ill or nearly deceased patient back to life or consciousness. It is primarily aimed at rectifying physiological dysfunctions resulting from trauma. Resuscitation forms a fundamental aspect of intensive care units, trauma surgery, and emergency medical care. The Advanced Trauma Life Support pioneered by the American College of Surgeons, advocates a primary survey method in the sequence of airway, breathing, circulation, disability, and exposure (ABCDE).

In the initial management of trauma resuscitation there are 4 key principles that should be followed:

  • Control bleeding
  • Restore tissue perfusion
  • Minimize iatrogenic injury from resuscitation itself
  • Promote hemostasis
