Advanced Life Support (ALS)
ALS services are used for patients that require acute monitoring during a transport. This can range from continuous intravenous fluids, cardiac monitoring, and/or ventilators. Licensed paramedics, who are ready to handle life-threatening emergencies, should they arise during a transport, conduct ALS transports. These transports are typically utilized by emergency rooms for hospital-to-hospital transfers and by Long Term Acute Care facilities for patients who need to be discharged or taken to medical appointments.
Basic Life Support (BLS)
BLS services are for patients who cannot safely ride in a vehicle, and instead require to lie on a stretcher and be monitored for transport. These patients only require basic level of medical supervision, and BLS services can range from transports to and from healthcare facilities as well as private residences. Two EMT-Basics can provide basic airway management, bleeding control, and/or patient stabilization while on scene and during the transfer.
