A “medical emergency” is an unforeseen or sudden bodily event that requires immediate medical attention to avert risk to a person’s life or long term health.
A minor condition is one that is not life-threatening. Examples: sore throat, slight fever, seasonal allergies, minor aches and pains, infections, colds, flu, sprains, cuts
A major condition is one that requires the attention of a doctor or specialized care.
*Also note that in the U.S., medical centers refer to hospitals, which offer comprehensive services. However, a medical clinic is not a hospital (see below); it is a small facility designed to treat routine, minor conditions or refer you to a doctor.
