One of the structural units of the station, "ambulance" are substations, which are calculated on a 15-minute transport accessibility.The local health authority regulates the territory served by one station.Staff service "Ambulance" together in teams to work in one shift.There are teams that specialize in one profile (cardiology, trauma, mental health, etc.).Urgent measures are carried out on the way to the hospital or at the scene.Emergency medical staff carried out CPR and closed heart massage, stopping the bleeding, blood transfusions.They also produce a number of diagnostic procedures: determining prothrombin index, duration of bleeding, relieve ECG, etc. In this regard, transport ambulance service has the necessary medical intensive care and diagnostic equipment..

Currently there is a dual system of emergency medical organization, considering the prehospital and hospital stages.In large cities are combining ambulance, which include hospital emergency medical care and emergency advisory department.This structure is concerned with the organization of the emergency and consultative medical care to the population using sanitary aviation and land transport.On the basis of emergency services under the supervision of department clinics organized home care.This allows you to improve the organization of the activities of emergency services and increase the responsibility of clinics for providing medical service attached to it of the population.

The duties of the department include: the provision of appropriate medical care to patients with acute diseases, providing on-demand call Brigade "Ambulance".The majority of patients after first aid go further investigation in order to avoid complications.

ambulance service - a very important stage in the structure of health care delivery to the population.Employees of the organization must be highly qualified by their activity depend the lives of thousands of patients.It was found that "ER" annually produces more than 100 million visits.Employees of the service is fast reaction, the hardness and the ability to quickly focus in all conditions.The doctor "first aid" should have a certain level of medical thinking, so that in a few minutes to establish the diagnosis and to provide appropriate assistance.Skilled this service you must have a clear knowledge of the differential diagnosis, able to navigate in the symptoms of the disease and the patient's complaints.Ambulance Physicians should correctly assess the symptoms and syndromes, the clinical picture of the disease, which is extremely important in the diagnosis.They need to learn the ropes and have a deep knowledge of many medical disciplines.Straight civil and human duty of every health professional is to provide first aid, failure to which entail disciplinary or criminal liability.

In our country, there is a network of health facilities providing emergency care.These include specialized emergency hospital, research institutes, clinics of medical schools and universities.

The recent trend to improve the quality of emergency care.This is achieved by continuous improvement of emergency structure: the use of new equipment, increasing network of medical institutions, increasing the number of health care workers and others must be stressed the importance of activities aimed at warning and teaching people the rules of first aid..So simple, yet vital activities are taught from school age.First Aid - a system of urgent measures aimed at the injured or suddenly ill person at the scene or en route to a medical facility.

There are several types of first aid.First medical aid is unskilled non-medical worker, as a rule, without any medicines and medical equipment.The first medical expert (pre-medical) care provides medical specialist (nurse, paramedic, etc..), Who has been trained.The first medical care is provided by a physician with the necessary devices, tools and medicines.

Depending on the conditions during transport affected varies from a few minutes to several hours.Every health care worker should be fluent in the patient's transfer rules, shifting from one stretcher to the other, as well as to know the causes that lead to complications during transport (shaking, violation of immobilization, hypothermia, etc.).First aid rendered correctly and as quickly as possible, will keep the victim lives, ensure the success of further treatment and prevent a number of serious complications.

In any medical facility (hospital, pharmacy, clinic, laboratory) for emergency treatment should be a first aid kit that contains essential drugs (antiseptics, analgesics, antipyretics, anti-bacterial, etc..) And simple medical supplies (thermometer, hemostatictourniquet, sterile bandages, cotton wool, etc.)."Ambulance" The station has a lot of cars with a full set of medicines and medical equipment to carry out their goals.Ambulances are equipped with a respirator, a set of medicines needed in an emergency, bandages, medical instruments (forceps, syringes, etc.), A set of tires and stretchers, etc.
