“At Heathrow Air Ambulance Service, we believe that all patients deserve good quality care, regardless of their circumstances, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our private ambulance services give each individual the kind of medical support they need. We are aware that obese patients have a particularly difficult time obtaining good medical transportation, which is why we are currently spotlighting our specialized bariatric care option. Overweight clients who choose to take advantage of our services will receive the compassionate and professional treatment we are known for, in a specially outfitted bariatric vehicle,” said Colin Walker-White, operations manager of Heathrow Air Ambulance Service.
Heathrow Air Ambulance Service bariatric option was developed to offer obese patients a safe and comfortable alternative for medical transport in London. The specialized vehicle offers a ramp for easy access and comes equipped with a winch for extra safety and security. The ambulance is outfitted with a Stryker EMS MX-PRO bariatric transport stretcher, a specialized stretcher designed for individuals weighing over 450 pounds. In addition to being wider and taller than the average transport vehicle, the MX-PRO has a maximum weight capability of 1600 over 850 pounds, which makes it a safer choice for obese individuals.
The company’s private ambulances can be used for emergencies as well as routine medical transportation. For cases when time is of the essence, they offer fast response cars that can be used in conjunction with its bariatric ambulances. As their name implies, the fast response cars from Heathrow Air Ambulance Service are designed to administer treatment on-the-go, providing medical care in the time before an ambulance can arrive on the scene. The cars carry a full array of advanced and basic life support tools and offer a number of services, including oxygen administration, automatic external defibrillation, and monitoring of vital signs.
In addition to providing patient transport in London, Heathrow Air Ambulance Service can also help bariatric patients with long distance transfers. The company has transported patients by land to as far as other areas in Northern Europe, and can offer basic or advanced life support for the duration of the trip. In addition, the company specializes in providing door-to-door service in the general greater London area, and has experience coordinating with many of the major commercial airlines as well as having jet ambulances of its own. Overweight patients who are traveling to or from the London area to receive medical treatment can rely on Heathrow Air Ambulance Service bariatric services to provide comfortable and high-quality care for the duration of the trip.
