What are some minor emergencies?


Minor emergencies, also known as minor medical emergencies, are medical concerns that need immediate medical attention but do not warrant a trip to an emergency room. These minor emergencies can range from having a urinary tract infection (UTI), an infection, or sprains and strains. Other things can be considered minor emergencies, such as diarrhea, first-degree burns, vomiting, or issues related to allergies that are not anaphylactic shock. Minor emergencies can also be considered situations such as a child who has decided to stick an object in their ear that they cannot get out of, a woman who is having an unusually heavy period that has led to the feeling of being dizzy or flushed, a person who has been outside for an extended time that has resulted in a headache that could indicate heat stress, or even an elder who has fallen who has not broken a bone but has severe bruising to the area.
 
The best way to determine if your situation is a minor emergency or a major emergency is through a few questions, “Do I need immediate medical care?” and if yes, “Is this life-threatening?”. If you determine it is not life-threatening but does need immediate medical intervention, this would be considered a minor emergency.

What would be considered an emergency?


Medical emergencies would be situations in which your life or a limb is at risk. These situations would include myocardial infractions (heart attacks), anaphylaxis, strokes, injuries resulting in broken bones that have also broken the skin, altered mental status, head or spinal injuries or cyanosis (bluish color of the skin). In these types of situations, these would be considered major medical emergencies, and you should seek immediate emergency care, as these are life-threatening and, if left untreated, could result in death or the loss of a limb. Emergencies should be dealt with in an emergency room, and if in the situation you do come to a clinic like ours, we will recommend that you go to an emergency room for your medical situation, as we know that in times of stress, someone may just come to the closest clinic to them without realizing how severe the problem is.
