What is the difference between a Medical Emergency and a Medical Urgency?MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: They are those health situations that require immediate attention since there is an imminent risk to life. In an EMERGENCY our medical team responds in an AVERAGE TIME OF 30 MINUTES. Examples: acute myocardial infarction, acute respiratory failure, cerebrovascular accident, severe trauma, etc. MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: They are those health problems without imminent risk to life, but that require timely medical attention to avoid complications. In an EMERGENCY our medical team responds in an AVERAGE TIME OF 45 MINUTES. Examples: acute appendicitis, renal colic, asthmatic crisis, simple fractures, etc. The Protected Area contract covers Emergency and medical Emergencies but not the care of minor situations that can be resolved through external medical consultations.
Why do ambulances have the sign upside down?The reason the word ambulance is written backwards on the front of the vehicle is because when reflected in the rearview mirror of the cars ahead, the image of the sign is reversed and the driver can read the word correctly, thus allowing the passage of the ambulance in case of emergency.
What are the opening hours of the MG MEDICAL GROUP?The MG MEDICAL GROUP operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, through the emergency number +57 (316) 693 6925.
