Do not fill this in!== Medical issues == Street ''medical issues'' documents also guide care by street medics. Medical issues are less concise than protocols, and guide street medic continuing education. Medical issues briefly identify, summarize and evaluate the best evidence and most current data about prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, risk/benefit and cost-effectiveness. Then they define the most important questions related to street medic or street clinician practice and identify all possible decision options and their outcomes. Medical issues are targeted at street medics who have mastered the basics in practice, and as such they define a scope of practice slightly broader than the scope of practice of basic street medics. Medical issues help medics use their prior knowledge and experience in the less-than-ideal environments in which street medics operate. Medical issues can be conducted also through medical consultation which services are done real-time through our advanced medical portal which provides clients with electronic medical records and the technology to connect our members to our doctors instantly. === List of medical issues === *[http://medic.wikia.com/wiki/Epileptic_Seizure_Basic_Aftercare Epileptic seizure aftercare]- Basic explanation of types and seizures and aftercare *[[Heat injury]] - Information on heat and sun-related illnesses *[[Hypothermia]] - Information on cold and wet-weather illnesses *[[Infected wounds]] - Very basic information on recognizing and responding to wound infections *[[Help getting to sleep]] - Not sleeping for long periods of time is extremely dangerous for physical and emotional well-being.
