Posted March 05, 2018 10:09:25In Vienna, doctors have a new option: medical care for cramp sufferers.
Vienna has become the first European country to offer emergency medicine for cramping.
According to the country’s government, the medical service is designed to reduce the number of hospital admissions for people with cramps and is available at most pharmacies.
The Austrian Medical Association has welcomed the move, saying the government had done the right thing in allowing doctors to prescribe the new emergency medicine.
“It is a very good move, we believe that the emergency medicine can be effective and very effective for people who have cramps,” said Andreas Hölldobler, CEO of the Austrian Medical Service Association.
“The number of emergency visits to hospitals dropped by almost 10% after it was introduced, and in the first half of 2019, this number will also drop.”
The new emergency medical service also includes a specialised pharmacy where patients can get a range of medicines, including antibiotics, analgesics and blood pressure medications.
The new medical service comes at a time when the government is struggling to find funding for healthcare in the country.
The health care system is currently struggling to provide basic care to the growing population.
In 2018, Austria spent less than one percent of its gross domestic product on healthcare.
