Acute Medicine & Surgery (AMS) is an international peer reviewed academic journal on acute medicine and surgery. Acute medicine covers a wide range of clinical areas, detailing cases of acute illness or injury. The journal contains pathophysiological analyses of acute illness or injury, whether the cause is medical and/or surgical. Studies of acute medicine include initial care in the emergency room, definitive treatment during acute phases of illness or injury and may also include subsequent critical care. In addition, acute medicine studies health care systems for acute patients, medical control systems and disaster medicine.
AMS seeks to share academic achievements among specialists and generalists who may be involved in studies of acute medicine and its clinical practice. AMS contains editorials, review articles, original papers, and letters to the editor relating to a published issue and/or a particular matter that may be of benefit to the greater readership. Case reports may be published if their clinical or scientific validity is considered significant for publication.
