A Mass Gathering Medicine and Event Medicine during Thaipusam 2023: A Crowd Medicine and Medical Standby Perspective
Medical standby is an event that was assigned to the emergency department to orchestrate the flow of medical management and the safety of the people who were involved during the event. The challenge started weeks or sometimes months before the occasion, as it may include more than one team for the event according to the requirements that have been standardized by the governing bodies. The preparedness of medical standby becomes more challenging as it requires dedicated and state-of-the-art resuscitation equipment to perform maximum medical life-saving procedures prior to the patient's dispatch to the selected hospital. This is a report of the Selayang medical team, which led multiple medical agencies to stay alert 24 hours a day during the first Thaipusam’s medical stand-by after the pandemic.
