The ambulances carry a Paramedic, Senior Doctor and a Consultant on most missions providing a 24/7 advanced trauma care outside of hospital, who provide general anesthetics on scene and carry blood on board to administer blood transfusion on the roadside or scene.
Some of the operations include; Pre-hospital resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA), surgical chest draining (thoracotomy), surgical and surgical nonsurgical rapid sequence induction (RSI), pelvic splinting (crucial to prevent blood loss in high impact crashes and crush injuries), advanced brain relief and sedation as well as portable brain scanner which can detect blood clots on the brain.
Any of our emergency ambulances with the team is aimed at reaching the patient at most 15 minutes, for missions involving serious road accidents, water and rail. Other missions may include road traffic collisions, falls from height, stabbings, shootings, industrial/ occupational accidents and on rail network.
The Rapid Response Cars carry staff and supplies like emergency blood supplies, allowing transfusions to be administered at the scene of an accident rather than later in hospital; a specialized refrigerator installed in the car and helicopter allows the transport of four units of universal O-negative blood type which can be stored in the aircraft for up to 72hrs. (Unused stock can be returned to the hospital).
After admission, we aim to manage customer hospital visiting programs of the patient, and remind them to prepare for a following day pick up. We help with rescheduling with the hospital where need be.
