Do Your Symptoms Require a Visit to the ER?

First aid bandage and scissor used in an ERAccidents happen every day, but not all of them necessitate a visit to an ER. It is hard to decide if a cut, head bump, or symptoms need medical attention. However, there are simple ways to decide to stay at home or go to an ER like Highland Park Emergency Room. Typical accidents and symptoms that teeter on the line include vomiting and nausea, cuts, and abdominal pain.

Vomiting and Nausea

It is never pleasant to suffer from nausea and vomiting. However, there are many causes that do not require medical attention. Morning sickness, indigestion, and heartburn can easily cause vomiting. In addition, sickening smells, not eating on time or properly, or even overeating can cause nausea. These causes are not medical emergencies. However, visit the ER immediately if you are vomiting severely, vomiting blood, or have not been able to keep anything down for 24 hours.

Cuts and Lacerations

Cuts and lacerations result from many situations, from falls to cooking dinner. In most cases, these injuries are easily treated at home. Any cut or scrape is vulnerable to infection. So, make sure to clean any break in your skin properly with soap and water. Most do not require a visit to the ER, but a cut that gapes open, is the result of an animal or human bite, or is caused by a rusted or dirty implement does. These wounds are at a higher risk for infection. Deep cuts or punctures also require stitches, which must be done by a qualified medical professional.

Abdominal PainYoung woman sitting on the bed with pain who needs in an ER
