Basic Life Support
Quality patient care with basic monitoring and transportation.
What can I expect from basic life support (BLS)?
Basic Life Support is ideal for patients who are too sick for our wheelchair service. Med Tech’s BLS team of caregivers transports your loved one or patient in a stretcher to provide medical monitoring.
We staff all BLS ambulances with certified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to ensure your loved one safely arrives at their destination. Your loved one is cared for by our highly trained staff, who offer monitoring, vital sign acquisition, and oxygen to stable patients in need of medical transport.
However, some patients need Advanced Life Support (ALS) to receive medication, IVs, and cardiac monitoring. Learn more about ALS to see if it’s right for your loved one.
When should patients receive Basic Life Support?
Med Tech Ambulance assesses your loved one’s exact needs to determine if BLS is right for them. We commonly offer BLS to patients in these situations:
- Fractured limbs. Unable to walk or bear weight.
- Patients who may need oxygen and are unable to administer it themselves.
- Careful transportation after surgery to a rehabilitation center.
- Patients in need of psychiatric care.
- Patients transferring from the hospital to a nursing home.
