What is inside an Ambulance?
Every Ambulance Service has a different set of medical equipment and paramedic equipment to ensure that its paramedics are capable of providing the best life-saving interventions while enroute to hospital.
Most Ambulances in Australia have at a very minimum:
- A deffibrilator
- Drug kit
- BP cuff and sphygnometer
-Gloves and a range of other personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Syringes, Needles, Cannulaes, Intra-nasal kits, alcohol wipes and other tools required to administer drugs
- Paper case sheets (although these are slowly being phased out with most Ambulance Services turning to electronic patient heath care case sheets)
- Stetcher (for the patient), spine board, carry chair, scoop stretcher, carry sheet.
- Splinting equipment, such as cardboard splints, traction equipment, and inflatable splints
- Burns kits
