This ambulance will compliment our services and increase the ability of the Cruz Roja to respond to the community.
The ambulance comes with basic equipment, which will need to be improved. The ability of the ambulance as a 4 x 4 will not restrict activities to the main roads.
Attached are videos that show the ambulance we are to receive.
We will be looking to the community for assistance with some of the equipment that we will need to enhance the capabilities of crew and the ambulance.
There are two major items that we are asking the community to help with:
First, we need a patient monitor that is portable (an attachment is included).
A portable monitor will provide real time feedback on the condition of the patient.
ECG, pulse, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and respiration are vital signs that could be monitored to aid in care.
Second, we need an AED (this item is most commonly referred to as a defibrillator); image attached.
Cardiac arrest, that is a term that most people have heard- this piece of equipment can save lives.
Both of these items will enable the crew to offer a higher level of care and promote better outcomes for the patients.
If any of you out there would consider a donation that would help us help you and the community, we would be most thankful.
Now that we have an additional ambulance, we will be able to increase our services to the community.
The ambulance will consist of a professional driver and a paramedic when attending emergency calls.
Patient transfers- we will be able to pick up patients and transport them to hospital (non-emergency).
We will be able to offer an English-speaking nurse and or a paramedic; this assists the international community.
We offer an ambulance that is all-terrain; so it can cope with the back roads.
Thank you. I hope that the community can help us, so we can help the community.
