Every Bell Ambulance is equipped with:
The Power-PRO XT is an innovative battery-powered hydraulic system that raises and lowers the patient with the touch of a button. The Stryker Power-PRO XT – now the industry standard of care. We are proud to say that every one of our ambulances, as well as all nine Liberty Bells, are equipped with this cot. Power cots greatly enhance patient comfort and crew safety.
Combined with Stryker's Power-PRO cots, the Stryker Power Load system eliminates the need to lift patients into the ambulance. With a 650 pound weight capacity and smooth operation this system is not only easier on the patient but helps prevent injuries to our employees.
In addition, every Bell Paramedic ALS ambulance is equipped with:
The ZOLL X series monitors are optimized for the Critical Care Transport environment. Standard features include 12 lead acquisition and transmission, NIBP and external pacing. We are also able to monitor up to three invasive pressures as well as etCO2 and spo2 monitoring.
SAPPHIRE MULTI-THERAPY INFUSION SYSTEM
Every Bell Critical Care Paramedic Ambulance carries three Sapphire Multi-Therapy Infusion Systems. These lightweight yet durable systems can deliver high-end volumetric infusions equivalent to pumps found in the ICU. A compact design gives our Critical Care Teams the ability to transport crucial, life-saving medications while maximizing space and efficiency. Each pump comes with an easily programmable medication library that allows our caregivers to administer a wide range of medications safely and precisely.
HAMILTON t1 transport Ventilator
Every Bell Critical Care Paramedic Ambulance is equipped with a Hamilton-T1 ventilator. As the most popular transportation ventilator internationally, its rugged durability and versatile ventilation techniques make it the perfect ventilator for our patients. With intelligent ventilation modes such as Adaptive Support Ventilation, CMV+, SIMV, CPAP, and BiPap, our crews are able to deliver ICU respiratory support on-the-go. Whether breathing is volume controlled, pressure controlled, or non-invasive, the Hamilton’s various settings and features allow our caregivers to tailor settings for maximum respiratory efficiency and comfort.
HAMILTON H900 HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM
In addition to the Hamilton T1 Ventilator, every Bell Critical Care Paramedic Ambulance is equipped with the Hamilton H900 humidification system. When used with the Hamilton Ventilator, this system delivers heated and humidified oxygen to patients requiring additional respiratory support. The system can be used for patients receiving invasive ventilation, non-invasive ventilation, or high-flow oxygen therapy. The respiratory circuit contains heated wires integrated directly into the circuit wall, ensuring consistent heating and humidification of the medical gasses being delivered. Its compatibility with the T1 ventilator allows for an increased respiratory support capability and adds to patient comfort.
The McGRATH® MAC enhanced direct laryngoscope (EDL) is a device that combines the benefits of both direct laryngoscopy (DL) and video laryngoscopy (VL).
In the event that a patient needs to be intubated while in our care, each of our ALS and Critical Care ambulances carry the McGrath video laryngoscope. This device greatly increases the chances of successful intubation.
Additional equipment carried includes:
When inflated, a cushion of air beneath the mattress enables our EMTs and Paramedics to safely transfer patients without lifting or straining. The HoverMatt is ideal for bariatric patients as well as patients with decubitus ulcers, fractures or any condition where movement causes discomfort. Most of our ambulances are equipped with the HoverMatt.
A highly specialized piece of equipment, the HoverJack is used to safely lift injured bariatric patients off the floor. In conjunction with the HoverMatt we can safely move bariatric patients from the floor to the cot with minimal risk of injury to our crew members or the patient.
New to Bell Ambulance is the Stryker Xpedition powered stair chair. It utilizes an automated track system to move patients up and down stairs without lifting. These new stair chairs increase the safety and comfort of our patients and employees. Five of these new stair chairs are located strategically throughout our service area.
The AeroClave is used to disinfect vehicles and equipment with an EPA-approved, hospital-grade disinfectant at the push of a button.
The environmentally friendly disinfectant solution produces no harmful by-products for the environment, contains no VOCs and is 100% biodegradable.
