What Does Our Ambulance Service Entail?
Correct and safe patient transfer is a crucial and integral part of patient care. Patient transfer refers to carefully and safely moving a patient from his/her home or any other location to the hospital and vice versa. Patient transfers at the right time can reduce the risk to the patient’s life and can also reduce the harm caused to them. Ambulance transfer between hospitals or from other locations to the hospital ensures that the patient is catered to and taken care of every minute, till he/she reaches a medical facility.
Emergency patient transfers using ambulance services ensure that paramedics reach the crisis site on time, offer first aid to the patient(s), stabilize them, if need be, and minimize the damage caused to the patient(s). Non-emergency medical transfers are meant for transferring a patient from one location to the hospital or from the hospital back home, safely, and comfortably. Non-emergency patient transfers are pre-planned, and they could be used to move patients back and forth for medical treatments such as for dialysis or medical appointments. Non-emergency patient transfers can reduce the stress and worries of family members and caretakers of the patient and can be very useful for patients who are critically ill and need constant monitoring. When a patient is in an ambulance, the patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels can be monitored. Equipment such as pulse oximetry, IV pumps, oxygen delivery devices, and advanced medication can also come in handy for providing pain relief to the patient or to help stabilize his/her condition.

Why Are Ambulances Important for Patient Transportation?
Ambulance Transport Services make it possible for patients and their families to have easy and quick access to medical care, especially during hours. Ambulances act as a medium of effective prehospital medical care that proves to be useful during emergencies. They provide emergency response and patient transfer in times of need and form an integral part of the healthcare infrastructure.
Patient Transport Ambulance Services are proven to be lifesaving during medical and trauma emergencies. Given that ambulance services function 24*7, they provide timely care through qualified and experienced healthcare professionals during a crisis. Through first aid treatment and care, paramedics help avoid or reduce the severity of damage caused to the wellbeing of the patient during accidents or other emergencies.
Using the ambulance equipment, paramedics can provide patients with effective assessment, management, and transfer of patients, thus reducing the risk to their wellbeing in times of emergency. What makes ambulance services stand out is their peculiar ability to not just provide immediate and quick healthcare but also that they provide a range of different services that individual medical professionals may not be able to provide independently and individually. Given that Ambulance operators are also in touch with hospitals, they can make sure that patients get proper healthcare at the right time and the earliest possible.
Patient transport ambulance services are manned by Paramedics who are highly trained clinicians offering required treatment to the patients. From a wound, illness, chronic condition, or trauma, paramedics have the expertise to work in stressful circumstances to help the patient through their training in intensive care education.
Following are reasons why ambulance services prove to be so useful:
Quick, Prompt & Safe Healthcare Service: During medical emergencies, ambulances provide efficient and fast services. Right from heart attacks, accidents to any other urgent medical requirements, ambulances are the safest and quickest for patient transportation. Once a patient is in the ambulance, their assessment and first aid start immediately, and paramedics effectively take care of their urgent healthcare needs and help stabilize them.
Advanced Technology and Equipment: Ambulances are equipped with Advanced Life Support (ALS), cardiac monitors and lifesaving equipment, emergency medications along with oxygen cylinders that are all meant to stabilize the patient’s condition.
Immediate Quality Care: Ambulances come along with trained and experienced paramedics and healthcare professionals are driven to ensure that you receive the best care possible. Not just the paramedics but even ambulance drivers are rigorously trained to ensure that the patient reaches the hospital safely and in time.
