Two new advanced cardiac life support ambulances were added to the fleet of six such ambulances at AIIMS. The ambulances were procured following a donation of Rs.84.75 lakh from the MPLADS fund of Congress parliamentarian Karan Singh.
"These state-of-the-art ambulances were procured for transporting patients from the Trauma Centre to the main AIIMS or any of its centres or for transport of any patient being received during disaster situations or any such contingency," said a statement from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
‘The new advanced cardiac life support ambulances are customised to meet the needs of any patient who has suffered a trauma and is in dire need for transportation elsewhere.’
According to the hospital authorities, these ambulances are fully equipped with all lifesaving equipments such as automatic external defibrillator, transport ventilator, portable and fixed oxygen equipment with key wrench and trolley.
"Oxygen administration apparatus, multi parameter monitor, infusion pumps, collapsible chair cum trolley stretcher, end tidal CO2 monitor and portable suction devices are also available in both the ambulances," said the statement. Both these ambulances are customised to meet the needs of any patient who has suffered a trauma and is in dire need for transportation elsewhere.
