Emergency Medicine

The Department of Emergency Medicine at Shanghai United Family Hospital and Clinics (SHU) is the place to come for any emergency, from heart attacks to trauma.

Our medical staff includes internationally trained and experienced emergency physicians and nurses with comprehensive emergency treatment capabilities that go far beyond that of many specialist physicians found in other emergency rooms throughout China. We have in-house specialists, including a pediatrician, available 24 hours a day. Our facilities are specially organized for emergencies. Hospital operating rooms as well as a full supply of triple-tested blood are available 24 hours a day if needed.

Our 24 hour Shanghai Emergency Hotline, (021) 2216 3999, links you to our doctors and nurses at all hours of the day to help you in any emergency situation. We can provide emergency advice in both English and Chinese, and can help translate with ambulance drivers, emergency workers, or others nearby if you have a problem. In many cases, a taxi or private car may prove to be the fastest way to come to our facility. If you need, however, our professional emergency staff can also help contact the national ambulance service and translate your whereabouts to them so as to allow for an ambulance to be dispatched to your location as rapidly as possible.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

Our Emergency Room is equipped with state-of-the-art life-saving equipment to handle all emergency situations. We have imaging, laboratory and pharmacy services available 24 hours a day, including a rapid state-of-the-art CT scanner with 3D and angiography capabilities, X-ray and the latest generation ultrasound. If necessary, we have blood available for transfusion that has been double checked at our hospital to ensure your safety.

First Aid Training

A good outcome in cardiac and other severe emergencies requires good first aid care by bystanders. For this reason the Department of Emergency Medicine offers first aid training and CPR/automatic external defibrillator training for individuals and organizations in Shanghai.

We offer training for personal employees such as an ayi or driver, as well as training programs for corporate staff. Courses can be tailored to suit your organization’s needs. We also organize Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support courses for medical professionals.
