Department of General and Regional Medicine

Medical services and specialties

In the Critical Care and Emergency Center, our department is mainly responsible for internal medicine emergency. Cooperating with the Department of Critical Care and Emergency, we provide clinical care for seriously ill patients including shock and trauma. We aim to respond to every patient without being restricted with specialty area. Our hospital has the departments that provide highly advanced medical care such as Comprehensive Cancer Center, Heart Disease Center, and Stroke center. However, some of the patients come to the hospital with unusual symptoms that do not correspond to any clinical department. Or, some have not been properly diagnosed, or some were told abnormal by physical checkup, however, they might not know where to visit. In such cases, we believe that the role of our department is to examine first. And, as a result of examination, for example, when patients are more likely to receive specialized treatment at Saitama Medical University Hospital, please understand that we may introduce them to it.

Hypertensive emergency, acute respiratory failure, acute abdomen, hyperglycemic emergency, hypoglycemia, infectious diseases (pneumonia, acute gall bladder etc.), unknown fever, emaciation, malnutrition, and dehydration, etc. are included.
