All our of ALS units are equipped with a Philips MRX Cardiac Monitor. All monitors are equipped with NIBP 12-Lead, 5-Lead, Sp02, and ETC02. We have recently upgraded all our monitors to contain the Philips wireless link. This device was put in place to give us the ability to not only upload data to our toughbook computers but also to be able to transmit crucial information from the field to any hospital we will transport to.
Each ambulance, both ALS and BLS, are equipped with portable CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). These devices are great in assisting patients who suffer from respiratory issues such as COPD, CHF, and Emphysema.
In a continued effort to provide the best care possible to our patients, we at A&E continue to seek out the latest and greatest technology available to help save lives. That is why we have purchased a couple of the LUCUS 2 systems.
In order to be able to save the lives of sudden cardiac arrest patients and avoid neurological damage, a steady supply of oxygen to the heart and brain is necessitated. Life-sustaining circulation can be created through effective and uninterrupted chest compressions. Performing manual chest compressions of high quality is both difficult and tiring, and impossible in certain situations. The quality varies depending on who provides CPR and deteriorates quickly after only one, two minutes.
Studies have shown that the mechanically controlled LUCAS compressions are able to sustain a higher blood flow to the brain and heart compared to manual compressions.
The LUCAS device is easy to carry and handle, and can be applied to the patient with interruptions of manual compressions of less than 20 seconds. This frees up caregivers to focus on other life-saving tasks; ventilation, medication, defibrillation as well as decision making on continued care and therapy.
At A&E we are "Committed to Excellence" and will accept nothing less. We take our career of saving and preserving lives seriously and are dedicated to providing our community with any and all technology available to accomplish this goal.
All of our front line units are equipped with power cots and power load systems. We made the transition to power cots and power loads to help reduce back injuries with employees and increase safety for our patients.

While we have some of the best staff in the business, mistakes can happen with medication dosages. We are pleased to provide on all of our units, the RightDose guide which is set up to take the math out of drug calculations. All medications contained in this book are set specifically to our drug concentration. This book is easy to navigate and lists every medication that we carry and administer.
This is a demonstration of the power load that is located in all of our ambulances.
Every ambulance in the Fleet has its own IV Fluid warmer. The fluids are warmed as they pass over the applicator. It takes approximately 20-30 seconds to warm up the IV fluid.
