No one likes it, but there may be times when we or a loved one may well need the services of medical transport.
Medical transports are an invaluable aid to society; they have lived a lot, lot easier for all of us. Just imagine in a medical emergency that there was no means of medical transport. How would you able to rush someone to a hospital who has just suffered from a heart attack or a stroke? We can thus understand the value of medical transport.
For instance, take the example of ambulances. How valuable have they been? They have been immensely valuable; where we any of us be without them? These professionals are indeed a critical part of our very existence. How many times can we recall when either we or someone we knew and loved needed the services of such in a real emergency, such as the previously mentioned examples, and the ambulance was right there, seemingly in the nick of time, to take us or they to the nearest hospital? Most of us are probably alive today because of an ambulance service.
That’s just some of the kinds of work medical transports such as ambulances have done to contribute to the service of their fellowmen. What are the various services an ambulatory service perform?
Ambulance services, sometimes called EMS or Emergency Medical Services, or paramedic services, are indeed an integral part of society.
Unfortunately, most people do not fully appreciate the value of ambulance services until something happens in their lives or to someone they love, such as a close family member, who may desperately need the above services.
Ambulance services are sort of a mobile hospital, it is designed to provide relative relief to the patient while on the way to the hospital, where they will receive a wider range of medical treatment.
What are some of the services the above perform? They do various things, such as:
- -Paramedic Service
- -First Aid Squad
- -Ambulance Squad
- -Ambulance Service
- -Emergency Squad
- -Rescue Squad
- -Ambulance Corps, or as it sometimes called Life Squad
So, as one can see, an ambulance staff has many hats, they have to play various roles, all of which are crucial to the benefit of society.
At times, ambulance squads have to play the role of savior or deliverer, at times they have to be on a particular site on the spot, hence first aid, among other above roles. As one can imagine, this is a challenging job; sometimes things are not always as successful as anticipated. Sometimes, a patient may die, despite all attempts to save them, which is an immensely crushing blow to ambulance staff. Ambulance squads are only human, after all, they have feelings just like everyone else; they are not calloused or indifferent to the needs and feelings of others, as some may erroneously think, they may sometimes even cry, thinking that the patient’s death was somehow their fault, which is not necessarily true.
