Ensihoitaja, potilas ja lääkäri ambulanssissa

It is particularly important that you call 112 in the following cases:   

  • sudden severe chest pain or difficulty breathing   

  • new stroke symptoms, such as sudden flaccidity or incapacity of a limb or speech difficulties.  

For example, these cases do not count as emergencies: minor injuries (contusions, sprains, wounds where bleeding has stopped), symptoms of infection (fever, common cold), limb and back pain, headache, or nosebleeds.
