Medical emergency management in hospitals

Dear Sir or Madam,

Each year there are about 93,000 cardiovascular shutdowns in German hospitals. To deal with these emergencies quickly, hospitals need a medical emergency management. This does not only affect intensive care units, but also normal stations because they are not closely monitored normally. Prof. Thea Koch, University Hospital Dresden, explains in our interview how hospital emergency teams are deployed and how hospitals can implement a medical emergency management.

Have a nice week!

World Diabetes Day is on November 14 of this year. This is reason enough to get informed about the options available in medicine on the subject of "diabetes". One area is telediabetology, a combination of telemedicine and diabetology. It is still not widespread in Germany, but that is about to change because the benefits for patients, physicians and hospitals are obvious. Dr. Lee-Barkey will give a lecture on this subject at the MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE at the MEDICA 2016. MEDICA.de spoke with her about the use of telemedicine and wearables in diabetes.
