What is Advanced Life Support (ALS)?
While our Basic Life Support (BLS) service is a prescheduled transport for patients transferring facilities, Advanced Life Support tends to focus on a specialized inter-facility transport.
When Access Ambulance’s team performs Advanced Life Support, the patient is typically in the comfort of our vehicle. We’re able to monitor vitals, start drug therapy, do cardiac monitoring, and start IV therapy. Our ambulances also have CPAP and other advanced treatment options such as ventilator transports.
If you call Access Ambulance in Massachusetts, our team of certified EMT Paramedics and Advanced providers will care for the patient. In Rhode Island, your loved one will be in the capable hands of our EMT Cardiacs. Our team is specially trained just for Advanced Life Support and they’re skilled to do effective, compassionate care to quickly save lives.
