Emergency medicine, best known for an accident and emergency cases, is the medical specialty concerned with the care of illnesses or injuries requiring immediate medical attention. For this very important aspect of the life, Dubai has moved to take special steps towards a perfect society in the UAE (“Dubai to host Emergency Medicine congress,” July 31, Gulf Today).

Dubai will host the five-day “The 5th World Academic Congress of Emergency Medicine (WACEM)” from Oct. 20 under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, UAE Minister and President of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

I  totally agree with Dr Sagar Galwankar, World Academic Council for Emergency Medicine (WACEM) executive director, who said in this statement that, “this (WACEM) is significant. It precedes the Expo 2020 Dubai. The (congress) participants will get to know and learn how Dubai is preparing and will be well-prepared for the Expo2020 Dubai. We will bring the world to Dubai. Dubai will also be bringing to the world what they have here with regards emergency situations”.

Senior Reporter Mariecar Jara-Puyod of this newspaper has mentioned in this report that confirmed lectures at the October summit are food innovations by a toxicologist, the personal experience of a medical doctor who became a patient in the hospital he works in, and how a physician-world traveler has set up hospitals wherever he went.

Executive director Galwankar added more information in this report about the congress that one of the highlights will be on the seminar-training workshops on pre-hospital care, the basics of which will be the latest on the use of the portable ultrasound system so that from any crisis or emergency situation anywhere in the world, Emergency Medicine people will be able to transmit quickly to hospitals the conditions of patients or victims that will lead to quicker resolution of medical cases.
