Emergency medicine in Thailand

Ann Emerg Med. 1998 Jul;32(1):93-7. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(98)70104-0.


Typical of developing countries, Thailand, located in Southeast Asia, is only beginning to consider the importance of emergency medicine and prehospital care. Medical emergencies in Thailand have traditionally had relatively high rates of occurrence and are currently increasing in the context of rapid economic development and urbanization, yet no formal emergency care training for physicians or prehospital care workers exists.
