The Importance of Ambulance Services in Kenya

Ambulance service means supplying ambulances to transport people to and from the hospital, especially in an emergency. Some life situations require immediate medical attention and a split second can change a person's life drastically.

Emergency Calls: Ambulance and paramedical service have a high status in society as they save hundreds of lives every day by answering emergency calls.

Emergency department: Whether the patient is in a rural emergency shelter, a busy seaside resort, or a large urban area, patients can reach the emergency department within minutes of the call.

Avoid Accidents: One of the important tasks of the ambulance team is to quickly stabilize and treat the patient to avoid accidents before the patient reaches the hospital.

Mobility: They provide immediate and effective life-saving care in a safe and clinical work environment with maximum mobility.

First Aid: They are well trained in first aid skills to deal with severe bleeding, abrasions, falls, heart attacks, traffic accidents, and more.

Today, ambulances come in all shapes and sizes, equipped with a variety of basic prehospital emergency equipment, including cardiac defibrillators, IV infusions, splints, oxygen, medications, and more. 

In some cases, patients may be transported by air ambulance, which is essentially an aircraft specially designed for emergency medical care in critical medical situations. 

Air ambulances are used when patients need to be transported long distances or in the field, or when patients need to be transported quickly to a treatment center.
