Hospitals ready for any emergency

THE five hospitals to run the medical stations at the Expo next year have been named.
They are Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai No. 9 People's Hospital, Shanghai East Hospital, Shanghai Shuguang Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital and Huashan Hospital.
The first four will run stations inside the exhibition area, dispatch medical staff and arrange patient transfers in the case of severe injuries or disease, the Shanghai Health Bureau said. Huashan Hospital's station will be in the Expo village, where officials from the participating countries will be living.
"Heart attack and trauma could be the major problems needing emergency treatment for the Expo event," said Yuan Kejian, vice president of Ruijin Hospital, which offered cardiopulmonary resuscitation training yesterday to 200 police school students who will be in charge of security in key areas.
The hospital plans to train all police and security staff on duty at the Expo in basic CPR.
"Early intervention when people suffer cardiac arrest is crucial," said Dr Lu Yiming, director of Ruijin's emergency department. "Teaching CPR skills to Expo staff can be of great help to patients before doctors arrive."
