Certain situations in life require immediate medical attention and a fraction of a second delay can drastically change someone’s life. Ambulance service and paramedics are very important in society as they save hundreds of lives a day by responding to emergency calls. They operate from ambulance stations located in different areas with control centers that respond to emergency calls and dispatch them when they are needed. Whether the patient is in rural retreats, in busy resort resorts or in large urban agglomerations, he arrives at the emergency scene just minutes from the call.
The crew of the emergency ambulance service includes a technician and a paramedic. Once the paramedics arrive at the emergency scene evaluate the situation and the condition of the victim and decide whether to take them to the hospital or just treat them there. One of the important functions of the ambulance crew is to stabilize and treat patients quickly to prevent any setbacks before the patient arrives at the hospital.
They provide immediate and effective care in a safe and clinical work environment with maximum mobility. They are well trained in first aid skills to cope with profuse bleeding, crushing and falling injuries, cardiac arrest, traffic accidents and more.
During earlier times they were used to transport the patients after the doctor or fire brigade of the rescue team applied simple first aid. For the most part, the patient traveled alone, however, in some cases, the doctor rode in the ambulance. Today, ambulances come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes equipped with a wide range of essential pre-hospital emergency machines, including cardiac defibrillators, intravenous drips, splints, oxygen, drugs and more. All ambulances have radios installed in them. Often ambulances also carry non-emergency patients who may be transferring to another hospital or treatment center.
In some cases, patients can be transported in an air ambulance, which is basically an aircraft specially designed to provide emergency medical assistance in critical medical situations. An air ambulance is used when the patient has to be transported over a long distance or terrain or if the patient has to be transported quickly to a treatment center. Air ambulances are equipped with basic equipment such as ECG monitors, ventilators, medication and stretchers.
