Cirugía General (ENARM)

Cirugía General (ENARM)

by John Fisher, MD, Kevin Pei, MD, Richard Mitchell, MD, PhD u.a.

Desde la antigüedad, la idea de que se debe acceder al cuerpo de un paciente para extraer tejido enfermo mediante herramientas especializadas ha estado estrechamente vinculado a la práctica de la medicina. Fue hace relativamente poco, durante el siglo XIX, que la cirugía comenzó a tomar forma como una especialidad médica. La cirugía puede definirse de manera amplia como la rama de la medicina que se centra en el manejo de condiciones que requieren intervención quirúrgica para una resolución definitiva.

En este curso, se introducirá al estudiante en los conceptos básicos de cirugía general, manejo de trauma y principios generales de manejo quirúrgico especializado. Para una comprensión óptima, se espera que el estudiante tenga un buen conocimiento de anatomía y fisiología, especialmente en relación con los sistemas cardiovascular, respiratorio y gastrointestinal. Además, se fomenta una comprensión sólida del equilibrio ácido-base y de electrolitos. Se ha procurado incluir únicamente aquellos temas más relevantes para el examen ENARM.

El trauma y las lesiones abdominales agudas se encuentran entre las condiciones clínicas más comunes que requieren manejo quirúrgico de forma urgente. Dado que los médicos generales suelen ser de los primeros profesionales de la salud en encontrarse con los pacientes en un hospital, un diagnóstico y manejo rápidos, a veces de manera simultánea, son cruciales para estabilizar adecuadamente a los pacientes antes de la cirugía y aumentar sus posibilidades de éxito y recuperación.

El manejo quirúrgico es ahora una intervención común en todo el mundo. Un médico general competente desempeña un papel importante al garantizar un diagnóstico oportuno y preciso, así como al indicar la vía de referencia apropiada para dirigir al paciente hacia la atención que requiere.
