Critical Care

All 17 of our Paramedic ALS ambulances are equipped for Critical Care services as well.

In addition to being the largest ambulance provider in Wisconsin, Bell Ambulance is also the largest and busiest Critical Care service in the State. We utilize the University of Maryland - Baltimore County (UMBC) training program to certify our Critical Care Paramedics. These Paramedics receive specialized training in order to prepare themselves to transport the most critically ill or injured patients.

Patients who require Critical Care level care include:

  • High-flow high-humidity oxygen (such as Optiflow or Vapotherm)

  • Ventilator management

  • Arterial line monitoring

  • CVP monitoring

  • ICP monitoring

  • Swan-Ganz line monitoring

  • Balloon pumps

  • ECMO devices

  • High-risk obstetrics

  • Trans-dermal or trans-venous pacing

Our Critical Care Units also carry over 50 medications, including:

  • Propofol

  • Labetalol

  • Nicardipine

  • Ketamine

  • Phenylephrine

We strive for excellence in Critical Care treatment and transport, both local and long-distance. Bell Ambulance utilizes top-of-the line equipment including Zoll X-Series cardiac monitors, Carefusion Revel Ventilators, McGrath Video Laryngoscopes, and Medsystem III IV pumps.
