Experiences of the emergency departement at the PyeongChang polyclinic during the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games / Kwangmin Kim... [et al.]

Kim, Kwangmin

The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games involved 2925 elite athletes, and providing proper health care services for these elite athletes was a critical priority. The authors established an emergency department (ED) in the Pyeongchang Mountain Polyclinic during the Olympics, which served staff and athletes from many countries. This experience, as well as a description of illnesses and injuries encountered during the Games, may provide useful information for planning medical care at similar events in the future.
