While CLCAS has the equipment and trained staff to provide high quality care to our region, equipment wears out, and newer technology can help us do a better job. Below is a list of new and replacement equipment that will help us serve you best.
EMTs and Paramedics use special kits or “jump bags” for quick, organized access to many vital tools such as breathing tubes and airways. Because adult-size versions of these items often won’t work with children, special pediatric jump bags have been designed and equipped to treat kids of all ages and sizes.
Used to deliver fluids and medication to emergency patients, CLCs current intravenous pumps will need to be replaced soon.
Fire, Police, and Emergency Medical Services are currently converting from analog to digital communication systems. The analog portable radios at CLCAS will need to be replaced by 2023.
Emergency Medical Personnel are constantly maintaining and upgrading their skills through continuing education programs. A life-like patient simulator allows our team to physically practice their skills treating cardiac arrest and other critically ill patients.
Often our EMTs and Paramedics are called at home to respond to a local emergency. By providing them with their own portable AEDs, they can be first responders, arriving ahead of the ambulance and providing timely, life-saving, cardiac care.
Traditional Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a physically challenging procedure for our EMTs and Paramedics. Often our responding team (usually 2 responders) need to spell each other as the patient is being treated and transported to the hospital. Rapidly becoming a standard of care, CPR Machines automatically compress a patient’s chest and allow the team to focus on other life-saving procedures as they treat and transport critically ill patients.
Using a small integrated video camera, these handy units allow our staff to quickly and safely insert breathing tubes in critically ill or injured patients.
Our standard EMS equipment bags are used on almost every call and need to be replaced on a regular basis.
