Intensive Care & Emergency Medicine

Intensive Care & Emergency Medicine
A challenge for doctors and patients

Scenarios in intensive care and emergency medicine can vary significantly. However, they have one thing in common: the situation poses an immediate risk to a person’s life, requiring appropriate and swift medical action.

Surgical interventions entail a major burden for the patient. Stress, volume depletion, oxygen deficiency or electrolyte imbalances increase the risk of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarct or shock.

Cardiac arrhythmia, the irregular heartbeat, occurs frequently and if left untreated, it may cause or exacerbate congestive heart failure or increase the risk of both a stroke and cardiac arrest. Atrial fibrillation is one of the most common types of cardiac arrhythmia in intensive care and emergency medicine.

If the heart loses its physiological rhythm, a human life is always at stake. Restoring a normal and regular heart beat swiftly and efficiently takes top priority. AMOMED focuses on the efficacy, safety and practicality of its medication as well as on the rapid effectiveness of substances.

A “heart attack” occurs when the blood flow in a coronary artery suddenly becomes impaired or blocked. The heart muscle fails to properly supply the body with oxygen-rich blood. If blood flow is not restored quickly to that part of the heart muscle, it will begin to die. Time is of the essence to apply life-saving measures.

Swift medical action and the right medication administered effectively and safely are decisive factors in the race against time to save a patient’s life.

Sepsis – generally referred to as blood poisoning – is the most severe form of all acute infections. If the immune system can no longer fight an infection, pathogens (germs) and poisonous substances (toxins) can easily spread the infection in the body, causing life-threatening chain reactions. This can lead to a dangerous drop in blood pressure and a failure of vital organs – the septic shock.

In such a case, rapidly effective products play a key role. AMOMED has developed innovative treatment options to effectively treat hypotension in septic shock.
