No Paramedic? FirstNet is there

With FirstNet Priority, EMS gets backup

asset

A Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance is dispatched

A caller reports chest pain. The only paramedic in the district is transporting another patient to the hospital. As the crew responds, it requests mutual aid from a neighboring Advanced Life Support (ALS) provider. They are on the way, but still 20 minutes out.

How can FirstNet help?

  • Dedicated high speed priority and preemption allow for near-real time video conferencing with the hospital from the scene.
  • The EMT crew can interface with the receiving facility doctor, who can assist in a real time assessment of the patient.
  • Medical orders can be given, 12 leads interpreted, and emergent transport initiated. Bringing the doctor to the scene via FirstNet vastly improves survival potential for medical patients.
