Potential Emergency Situations and Conditions
Many nontraumatic situations or conditions may occur and need to be handled properly. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
Sports-Related Injuries

Most sports injuries are due to either trauma or overuse of muscles or joints. The majority are caused by minor trauma involving muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bones.

When to Call for Help

Anytime you are not comfortable with a medical situation, call 911 (or your local emergency number), go to your nearest emergency room, or call your family physician.

Emergency Information Form

In an emergency, it is easy to "forget" even the most well-known information. That is why it is crucial for you to complete the information in this form for each member of your household. 

Child Health Emergencies

Having a very sick or severely injured child is a parent’s worst nightmare. If it happened to your child, would you know the best way to go about getting treatment? Knowing when to call an ambulance is important.

Emergency Care: When is it the Right Choice

If you're sick or hurt and want help quickly, it may seem like a good idea to go to the emergency room (ER) for care. You may think of the ER as a source of the most immediate medical attention, but if your situation is not a real emergency, this isn't true.

How to Respond to an Eye Injury

If you suffer a serious eye injury, what you don't do immediately afterward may help more than what you do.

Poisons

Many poisonous substances can potentially turn fatal if inhaled, digested, or absorbed by the body. 

When seconds count, rely on INTEGRIS TeleStroke Network to receive 24 hour stroke expertise

TeleStroke provides real-time expert neurological assessment of patients presenting with stroke-like symptoms in your hospital’s emergency department. This expertise-on-demand can help you rapidly evaluate and treat potential acute stroke patients. All of our stroke experts are trained in the practice of TeleStroke and participate in our TeleStroke quality assurance program.

For many communities, telemedicine is an important building block for developing a comprehensive stroke care system that reaches its citizens. With acute stroke expertise available "virtually" at the bedside, you won’t need to immediately transfer possible stroke patients elsewhere for evaluation, and the patients don’t lose precious time until the administration of tPA or other critical therapy.

Activating the TeleStroke Network

When a patient with stroke-like symptoms presents at an INTEGRIS TeleStroke Network member emergency department, the hospital follows the standard acute stroke protocol and calls our on-call stroke neurologist. We then immediately begin the assessment of your patient.

The INTEGRIS TeleStroke neurologist contacts the hospital by phone to review the case and initiate a video conference call if appropriate. After the video conference is established, the emergency department physician provides additional information about the patient. The stroke neurologist will then review the patient’s presentation with the emergency department physician and staff will perform a focused neurological assessment.

Upon completion of the exam, the TeleStroke neurologist reviews the brain images and then discusses the findings with the emergency department physician. Together they decide on the best plan of care. The findings and recommendation of the stroke neurologist are stored securely on the TeleStroke Network web site and are available for the hospital to print out and place in the patient’s medical record.
