Urgent Care or ER: How to Identify an Emergency
In an emergency, feeling shaky and uncertain is natural. When you’re dealing with sudden pain or trauma, it can be hard to think clearly. Luckily, help isn’t far away.
If you experience symptoms of a life-threatening medical condition, like chest pain, difficulty breathing, severe bleeding, or weakness on one side of the body, call 911 without hesitation to be taken to the closest emergency room. Common emergency conditions include (but are not limited to):
- Complicated Fractures
- Deep Wounds
- Extreme Difficulty Breathing
- Major Head Injury
- Severe Allergic Reactions
- Severe Burns
- Suspected Heart Attack
- Suspected Stroke
- Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood
Delivering expert, supportive care throughout the Daytona Beach area, we’re close by and always ready to step in. Whatever your emergency, you can trust we have a plan to help.
What to Expect When You Visit the ER
We know you have a lot of questions. We’ll answer each and every one of them as best we can, because we want you to feel confident in the care you receive. We’ll have a few questions of our own as well. First, we’ll ask for basic information like your medical history and the reason for your visit. Then, after we take your vital signs, our specialized care team will decide on the best way to care for you.
Using a process called triage, we carefully prioritize your care. In certain cases, this might mean treating a later-arriving patient who is experiencing a heart attack or stroke before someone with a less serious condition. In emergency situations, every second counts, so count on us for speedy specialized care. We are always striving to keep emergency room wait times as short as possible, so you can get the help you need in a timely manner.
To help minimize your stress in case of a medical emergency, you may want to consider keeping certain information with you at all times, perhaps on a card kept in your wallet or purse. Helpful information to put on the card includes:
- Contact Info of Your Primary Care Physician
- List of Medications
- Drug Allergies
- Advance Directives (like power of attorney, health care proxy, or do-not-resuscitate orders)
The more we know, the more safely and quickly we can treat you. For more information or to take one of our heart health risk assessment quizzes, visit here.
