How can I tell if I need to go to the emergency room?

Emergency room visits are primarily for injuries, illnesses and other health issues that are severe or life-threatening in nature. Most injuries can be treated at an urgent care center so patients can avoid the long wait times and potential exposures to germs associated with emergency rooms. Some examples of emergency room issues include:

  • Radiating chest pain
  • Mental confusion
  • Head or neck injuries
  • Loss of vision
  • Seizure
  • Severe headache that starts suddenly
  • Severe abdominal pain, especially when accompanied by fever or vomiting
  • Deep cuts on the face
  • Severe burns
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Heart palpitations

Will I need an x-ray?

X-rays are commonly used to determine if a limb or joint might be fractured or dislocated. If you have an injury to a limb or joint that limits your range of motion, if pain increases when weight is placed on a painful limb or joint, or if there is swelling and discoloration of the limb or joint, the doctor will usually order an x-ray. Certain internal symptoms may also warrant an x-ray, including persistent or painful cough or some types of abdominal pain.
