Oxygen Powered Ventilators

In another move to improve the service provided to our patients, we have added oxygen powered ventilators to all of our ambulances. These new devices will allow EMTs and Paramedics to perform other necessary procedures while caring for patients on the way to the hospital. Manufactured by Hartwell Medical, the new ventilators, which are oxygen powered, are designed for a single patient use and allows the Paramedic to control the setting such as how fast the patient is ventilated and how deep the ventilation will be. Using this device will allow personnel, who in the past have had to perform this skill manually, to concentrate on other procedures such as CPR or medication administration while the patient is transported to the hospital.
