Everyone thanks you and all but, Asgardia would need to rely on Earth based hospitals for medical emergencies (initially that is).

I'm a volunteer medical first responder (US EMT 2 equivalent-ish) instructor right now (as well). Assuming we're not going to space any time soon, this forum might be better suited for policy, practice and "what if" discussions.
A lot of my input will be from a first responder perspective, but we will have a need for an on-board hospital if we are truly to be self-sufficient.
Some areas that will need development are what to do in low/zero gravity emergencies, how to work in potential zero gravity, how to respond to moments of zero gravity (say hypothetically if a hospital momentarily lost their "grav plating"), and other issues as we become more experienced in working in space.
Personally I'd love for all citizens to have taken a "standard first aid & CPR" course, and for AED's to be publicly accessible throughout the station.

I manage an IT emergency operation center that takes an all hazards approach, I've had advance training in first aid, I'm a Civilian Emergency Response Team (CERT) member, and I keep my CPR AED training current. My focus is from that perspective.
While we do not currently have a population in space, we need to develop an environment in which all Asgardians embrace a standardized level of situational awareness, crisis management, emergency first aid, and other necessary skills with a will to use them whenever they are needed. This should be done regardless of the environment that an Asgardian finds themselves in. With this in place, everyone becomes alert with a common framework of skills necessary to respond to whatever is thrown at them. Additional skill sets would be added based upon environment.
