The Chhattisgarh chapter of SEMI was launched with the aim is to create awareness in the development of Emergency Medicine in Chhattisgarh with major thrust being on training more personnel. Emergence Medicine is perhaps newest of the specialties accepted in India and by MCI. It is a vast specialty catering practically to each and every specialty in the field of medicine.
The vastness of the specialty can be accessed from the range of cases which includes MI, stroke, Trauma and Sepsis to a foreign body in the ear. Needless to say, with the enormous amount of cases, there has to be structured department with trained personnel with procedures and protocols. Above all, Emergency department is where most of the medico legal cases are dealt with. Also, an Emergency medicine department has to function quickly, precisely, proficiently while coordinating with other hospital departments.
SEMI being the oldest, largest and undoubtedly the best Emergency medicine organization consented to launch a chapter in Chhattisgarh. The team would be focussing on forming a structured and protocol oriented emergency department for hospitals, initiate training of Doctors and Nurses. The coordination between hospitals, government and private sectors would need constant and sustained support from various hospitals, Government, Community leaders, the media and the community itself.
