 Definition Emergency medicine is both a specific medical specialty dealing with the proper care of patients with unexpected injuries or disease, but also the provision of entire systems for such care, beginning with minimal bystander assistance, through field medicine, emergency rooms and trauma centers, and movement to specialized facilities such as burn units and interventional neuroradiology [d] [e]

While the specialty of emergency medicine deserves an article as a recognized medical specialty, linked closely to trauma, emergency medical service, military medicine and other areas, it will also provide a gateway to articles characterizing various mainstream medical approaches to urgent requirements for medical care. The original need came during the writing of the homeopathy article, to establish a place to record medical approaches to what initially will be called respiratory emergencies; the title is open to change.
