What happens during emergency care?

The Memorial Springs ER team addresses any immediate pain concerns when you arrive at the emergency room. They also weigh you, check your vital signs, review your symptoms, and complete a physical exam. 

Your emergency medicine specialist listens to your breathing and heartbeat and evaluates your eyes, ears, throat, abdomen, limbs, and more to look for any signs of potentially serious problems.

Your provider may suggest you undergo on-site lab testing, X-rays, a CT scan, an ultrasound, or another imaging procedure. You might need an electrocardiogram (EKG), other heart-function testing, allergy testing, lung-function tests, nasal or throat swabs, or additional tests to diagnose your condition and effectively treat it.

  • Rest and fluids
