The ambulance stretcher is a medical device that can be used to lay down a person. It is specially designed to be transported in an ambulance for use with facilities. The ambulance stretcher is deployed from the ambulance when it arrives at the injured person who needs to be lifted and transported to the hospital.
Stretchers are used in the medical industry to incapacitate disabled persons when they cannot walk, move or become unconscious. Specific injuries, even unproven, require the use of an ambulance stretcher.
There are four types of ambulance stretchers used in ambulances: 1. Automatic loading stretcher (standard for ambulance) 2. Stair stretcher 3. Folding stretcher 4. Scoop stretcher.
The self-loading stretcher of the China ambulance stretcher has the advantages of simple operation, lightness, and agility. When automatically loading the stretcher to transfer the wounded to and from the ambulance, the stretcher can be operated by a single person to realize the automatic conversion of high and low positions, which provides favorable conditions for the rapid and convenient rescue and transfer the wounded. The back and reclining plates are made of thermoplastic material suitable for extracardiac compressions and are easy to clean and sterilize. The back panel of the ambulance stretcher can be adjusted and fixed between 0-90 degrees, the side protection rail can be completely turned over, and it is equipped with a safety lever, which needs to be lifted when getting on the vehicle to prevent the stretcher from being unintentionally stowed away and protect the patient's safety. The vertical legs are cushioned.
1) The sponge pad stretcher machine is used to make the patient transport comfortable, lift the patient on the stretcher and transport it by ambulance.
2) If the head of the ambulance stretcher needs to be raised, press the button under the head of the stretcher to lift it upwards.
3) When the patient arrives at the ward or destination, pull out the handle, and two people can lift it down.
4) The stretcher surface guardrail adopts a rotary elastic locking device, and the bar is turned up to ensure the patient's safety. If necessary, the safety belt is used for insurance, and the guardrail is turned down so that the patient can get up and down quickly.
5) When the patient needs an infusion, one end of the stretcher surface can be inserted into the infusion frame.
Background and significance of ambulance stretcher: With the increasing population in our country and the scarcity of land resources, high-rise buildings are undoubtedly the only way to save land resources. However, with the increase of aging in our country, if the elderly living in the high-rise need rescue in an accident, the ordinary stretcher will be difficult. Taking the stairs is not only time-consuming and labor-intensive but also life-threatening for particular patients. At this time, the stair stretcher was born.
The stair stretcher is mainly designed with a crawler type, suitable for transferring patients in the stairwell. The products are mostly made of lightweight aluminum-magnesium alloy materials. This product's back and rear armrests are sloping backward, and the unique design of the forearm so that the patient's weight is optimally distributed so that the operation is more labor-saving. The tall and long rear armrest is safer to operate. When going downstairs, it is possible to use this product to cross three floors of stairs, which means that it is a reality to push the patient downstairs one by one. Using this product, the ambulance stretcher, the patient will feel better on the ground. More comfortable.
The ambulance stretcher aluminum alloy folding stretcher is made of high-strength aluminum alloy material and Oxford leather surface. It has the characteristics of light weight, small size, easy to carry, and safe use. It is mainly suitable for hospitals, sports venues, ambulances and troops to transport wounded in the field. patient.
The scoop stretcher is composed of two aluminum alloy plates on the left and right. Different from the general ambulance stretcher, it can insert two plates under the patient's body respectively, and then lift it up after buckling. Minimize the secondary injury to the patient during the handling process.
When transporting the wounded, first place the injured in a supine position, fix the neck, and then insert the left and right pieces of the stretcher into the back of the wounded from the side, and then fasten them before carrying.
Generally made of lightweight metal (usually aluminum), ambulance stretchers are long, rectangular in shape with a comfortable length and width for a person to lie on. It has handles at both ends so medical professionals can easily lift it. Stretchers are sometimes used for padding for added comfort, but no padding is used depending on the use of the injury, such as a spinal injury.
An ambulance stretcher can be carried in inaccessible places, such as on grass that cannot be rolled. It can also be easily pushed onto the wheeled frame, the surface is smoother, and the structure can increase movement speed.
The ambulance stretcher is a faster and more stable way to transport patients. Allows healthcare workers to free up their hands to hold any medical equipment the patient is using. Straps are used on ambulance stretchers, not for restraint but safety. They secure the injured person on a stretcher during transport.
In addition to being used for emergency vehicles, it is also suitable for transporting patients in major hospitals, battlefields, stadiums, etc., and can also be used for general operations. The ambulance stretcher should pay attention to turning up the safety fence when transporting the patient, mainly to ensure the patient's safety. During the process, pay attention to the direction of the knife and do not cut the protective surface of the ambulance stretcher.
Always keep the ambulance stretcher clean (including disinfection)
Always check for loose parts
It is forbidden to stand upside down during storage and transportation and stack them as shown in the packing box at the same time.
Whether it is a natural disaster or a man-made disaster, rescue stretchers serve as one of the indispensable rescue tools in it. They have a wide variety and different names. According to their structure, function, and material characteristics, they can be divided into three categories: simple stretchers, general stretchers, and special purpose stretchers.
A ambulance stretcher is a stretcher that is temporarily made locally when there is a shortage of stretchers or insufficient stretchers. Generally, temporary stretchers made of two strong long poles with sturdy fabrics such as blankets and clothing are used to cope with the transfer of the wounded in emergency situations. Universal stretchers mainly refer to standard stretchers that adopt uniform specifications. Generally, they are guaranteed to be interchangeable between military branches and different service departments. They do not place much emphasis on appearance, and are mainly practical. Special stretchers are mainly designed and used for conditions such as special climate, topography, injury characteristics of the wounded and sick, etc., that are not suitable for the use of universal stretchers for transfer.
The shovel stretcher minimizes secondary damage to the patient's spine during handling. It is mainly suitable for seriously injured people. If used by seriously injured people, the probability of accidents can be reduced.
The injury fixing plate is mainly used for patients with fractures. For example, the spine board can be used for fixing and carrying spinal injuries, the ALLIED plate can be used for spine and head injuries, and the matching splint can also be used for carrying patients with fractures in other parts.
The construction of the gondola stretcher focuses on the breadth, flexibility and specificity of first aid, such as air or sea rescue. The sturdy frame and simple and reliable device allow the operator to take first aid measures safely and quickly. The hook can be connected to the hook on the aircraft to realize field rescue.
Oxygen concentrator’s main advantage is that it does not require oxygen storage equipment and fixed oxygen supply. During use, especially when continuous oxygen supply is required, the cost is low, which is suitable for people who continue to inhale oxygen, especially families. Oxygen therapy is more convenient. The working method of the oxygen concentrator is similar to that of the sleep ventilator, but the design is slightly more complicated. It will actively filter the indoor air and then introduce it into your respiratory tract through a hose. The air provided by the oxygen concentrator Pure oxygen with a purity of 87% to 93% can be transported in two ways: continuous air flow (continuous flow) or a small amount of measurable amount (pulse flow). The oxygen principle of household oxygen production mechanism is: molecular sieve principle; The principle of polymer oxygen-enriched membrane; the principle of water electrolysis; the principle of oxygen production by chemical reaction. The molecular sieve oxygen generator is the only mature oxygen generator with international and national standards.
Nowadays, people’s life and work pressure has increased. With the accelerated pace of life, many middle-aged and elderly people, pregnant women, white-collar workers, and people with chronic diseases such as respiratory failure and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases will have an increased demand for oxygen. In addition, workers who suffer from lung function damage due to work-related injuries and have difficulty breathing and need long-term oxygen inhalation, such as patients with pneumoconiosis, are also suitable for household oxygen concentrators. By inhaling oxygen, the body’s metabolism can be improved, the arterial blood oxygen partial pressure and oxygen saturation level can be fully increased, and various symptoms caused by hypoxia can be corrected. It has a positive role in adjuvant therapy for many chronic diseases, so that the body can maintain a A relatively good steady state can better improve the quality of life. The negative effect of excessive oxygen inhalation, pure oxygen inhalation can cause poisoning. In addition, excessive oxygen inhalation can also promote life aging.
How to choose an oxygen concentration? First look at the brand. Big brands not only have more advanced oxygen production technology, but also have a complete after-sales service system, which makes the use more secure. Secondly, look at the technology. The molecular sieve technology is adopted, which has the characteristics of high oxygen concentration, so that the elderly can enjoy continuous and stable high-quality oxygen supply. Finally, let’s look at the noise. For technical reasons, the domestic oxygen generator cannot be silent when it is working. Most of them have the sound of solenoid valve switching and molecular sieve exhausting nitrogen. Generally, oxygen generators with high-quality compressors operate very quietly and generally have relatively low noise.
Maintenance of the oxygen generator. Regularly check the humidification water tank of a small household oxygen generator to clean up the dirt in the humidification water tank. Regularly check the compressor operating system of the small household oxygen concentrator to see if there is any leakage. Check the air drying system of a small household oxygen generator. Check whether the interface between the oxygen suction pipe and the oxygen outlet of the small household oxygen generator is aging and leaking. Check the atomizer of the small household oxygen generator to ensure that there is sufficient water inside, otherwise the oxygen produced is too dry, long-term inhalation of dry air or people who are sensitive to the respiratory tract will have a bad effect.
Earthquakes or other disasters are often accompanied by a certain number of casualties, and the transport and treatment of the wounded cannot be sloppy. If a worker wants to do a good job, he must first have a sharp tool. The rescue scoop stretcher can help rescuers quickly complete the transfer of the wounded. It is a piece of essential rescue equipment for fire rescuers to rescue trapped and injured people.
Today, I will show you the rescue scoop stretcher and the transport equipment used in the rescue process. Stretcher carts are the most commonly used means of transporting patients in hospitals. Generally, stretcher carts are four-wheeled. With the diversification of the medical market, emergency equipment is constantly being updated.
There are many types of rescue scoop stretchers with different names. Common ones are folding stretchers, multi-purpose stretchers, and hanging basket rescue stretchers.
The foldable rescue stretcher comprises a metal frame and an oxford leather surface (or canvas). It has the characteristics of small size, lightweight, and easy use. After unfolding, the wounded can lie on it, and straps protect the upper body, waist, and steps. Suitable for transporting and transferring personnel on general occasions.
The multi-functional stretcher is small, extremely lightweight, and easy to carry. It can be rolled into a roll at ordinary times, lifted horizontally or vertically during use, and dragged on smooth ground. The wounded inside will not fall off. It is mainly used for high-altitude, Underground, confined spaces, and mountain rescue operations.
The basket stretcher is mainly used for air or sea rescue. Its frame is sturdy and durable, and its simple and reliable operation performance allows operators to take first aid measures safely and quickly. The hook suspension matched with the hanging basket rescue stretcher can be connected with the hook on the plane to realize field rescue.
Its structure, function, and material characteristics can be divided into simple stretchers, available stretchers, and ambulance stretchers.
A simple stretcher is a stretcher that is temporarily made from local materials when there are no stretchers or short stretchers. Generally, two sturdy bamboo poles are used with blankets, clothing, and other sturdy fabrics to make temporary stretchers to transport the wounded under the circumstances.
Universal (standard) stretcher mainly refers to the standard rescue scoop stretcher with uniform specifications, which guarantees that it can be used interchangeably between military services and different service departments. It does not emphasize appearance and focuses on practicality. The available stretcher consists of a stretcher bar, a stretcher surface, a stretcher foot, transverse support, and related accessories, and many countries have also formulated corresponding stretcher standards.
At present, the shapes of standard general stretchers include straight rods, two-fold and four-fold.
The straight bar stretcher is suitable for large ambulances and hospitals.
The two-fold stretcher is suitable for position rescue.
The four-fold stretcher is suitable for special forces.
The rescue scoop stretcher fabric mainly uses canvas. Because of its heavyweight and poor washability, chemical fiber fabrics, such as polyethylene or polypropylene materials, are now tending to be used. The advantages of this material are strong hydrophobicity, easy cleaning and disinfection, and lightweight.
The stretcher bar is made of wood, and mahogany is the main material in China. There are two kinds of shapes: square tube and round tube. At present, most countries have adopted aluminum alloy materials.
Outrigger one adopts a square structure. Existing aluminum alloy stretcher bars are welded or riveted. Welding is difficult for thin-walled aluminum alloys, but a good welding process can solve this problem; riveting does not have this problem, but it requires high material strength and metal potential.
Steel cross braces: When the stretcher is unfolded, use the strength of your feet to open it. It is forbidden to use hand braces to prevent injury.
The wounded fixing belt 1 prevents the wounded from sliding during the transfer process and avoids secondary injury.
Handle 1 There are currently three types of stretcher handles wooden, metal, and plastic. The plastic handle is light in weight, can be retracted, is especially suitable for transport vehicles with limited space, and meets the specified strength requirements.
Fixation and shock absorption of the rescue scoop stretcher: It mainly refers to how to fix the stretcher with the transportation tool when it is transferred to various transportation tools and how to reduce the vibration of the wounded during transportation.
The lower part of the main body of the car body is equipped with a front and rear wheel retractable wheel frame system.
ambulance scoop stretcher front-wheel retractable wheel frame system consists of front wheel strut, front wheel and main board.
The rear retractable wheel frame system is composed of rear wheel strut, rear wheel connecting rod, rear wheel and mainboard.
Advantages of China ambulance scoop stretcher: It can realize the functions of height adjustment and automatic leg retraction of the ambulance stretcher, guardrail up and down, wheel rotation, and other parts, which can meet the needs of the wounded and the hospital. It can automatically retract the legs when getting into the car and adjust the height during the translation process, saving valuable time and ensuring the minimum number of occupants.
The spine board is made of fiberglass or fiberglass-reinforced plastic. The main advantage of this kind of material is that it can be easily folded and molded into any shape. It can be used to hold the spine and protect it from damage.
It’s a fairly simple setup: there are two parts, one for each side, with two holes opposite each other in the middle. It basically consists of a long piece (like a tablecloth) with a hole drilled through it. At the two opposite sides of the board, you attach one end to the table (or sometimes a hardboard or some kind of support) and then fasten the other end to your patient or another part of your equipment (which will support the patient). The whole thing is held together by screws, bolts, or rivets that pass through both pieces at different points on their lengthwise axis.
The most common problem when using this kind of system is that during exercise, air bubbles can get trapped in between the table and your patient as they exert pressure on each other – especially when you are holding them in different positions. Also, if you have a hard surface on either side (a soft surface would not work well because it might start squeaking), then in order to avoid air bubbles getting trapped between them you have to adjust the angle at which you open up those holes so that their edges touch one another – more on this later.
The folding spine board is made from fiberglass or fiberglass-reinforced plastic. It is a kind of material that can be easily folded and molded into any shape. It can be used to hold the spine and protect it from damage, for example when moving a patient on a stretcher, or when holding an object that needs to be kept from falling off the stretcher (such as a bag of medicine).
This type of material is great for moving patients on stretchers, but it’s also very useful in other applications such as holding bags of medicine or other stuff. You can use it to hold objects or parts of them while still keeping them stable on a patient’s back. You can also use this material while they are moving around their legs (and putting weight on their feet) because it absorbs some of the impact during their movements. It’s best used with inflatable medical devices so they don’t get damaged too much during transport.
The spine board is a piece of equipment that has its shape and location defined by the patient. This can be done by using some kind of padding, but it is also possible to move a patient on a folding spine board freely.
The right way to use the spine board depends on how the patient moves; if he or she walks towards you, for example, you will use the spine board in such a way that it does not interfere with his or her movements.
It is also important that you do not lie on the patient so that his or her weight remains relatively evenly distributed throughout their body. Lying down on the spine board can cause your patients to fall off, so it is important to keep them in an upright position as much as possible.
If you are moving your patient across different surfaces, then it is good to have a pair of floor mats or even carpet underfoot.
A good way to see how your patient would move on this kind of board is by trying out different positions yourself. Ask him or her where they would like to go next and follow them around while they are there, doing up-and-down movements and then turning around and around again.
The safest thing to do when moving patients who cannot move themselves (such as infants) is try standing behind them and being careful not to get too close—this can be dangerous for both of you! We also don't want our patients lying flat on their back either (to avoid spinal cord injuries).
People eat grains and cereals, it is inevitable that there are times when they get sick, and nowadays, with advanced medical care, when you get sick, of course, you will go to the hospital for treatment. Most people are treated through intravenous infusions to reduce inflammation and cough, etc. Therefore, when there is a high incidence of some diseases, we will see a large number of people sitting in the infusion room are dripping or waiting for the drip. There are even some elderly people who do not have enough nutrients in the heat of the day and go for nutrient delivery by IV. So for hospitals, IV stand are an indispensable tool. So what are the different varieties of IV stand, what materials are they made of, and are the prices of IV stand on the market now high? Let's talk about it briefly today!
Children's illness often makes all parents very heartbroken. Especially when the fever does not go down, parents will take their children to the IV drip, but look at the child is very mobile, so in the past, only the parents can only hold the child's hand throughout the IV drip, and the previous IV stand are for adults, did not take the child's small into account, and now the IV stand have special can provide for children to use, such as in the children's hospital infusion room inside the There are a large number of stand that are specifically provided for children's IV infusion, and the price of these children's IV stand is slightly higher. Not only can they be adjusted up and down according to the size of the child, they can also be adjusted according to the length of the arm, and they can also have the function of fixing the child's arm, which greatly liberates the parents and the child.
Most of the intravenous infusion is fixed directly on the seat, generally speaking, the left and right front and rear can be provided to four people for infusion use. But now there are also many are movable IV stand, these IV stand can be used one to one. The main function is that when some patients need to go to the bathroom, or when inpatients need to take a drip to the examination, they can move directly to their desired destination. Then the price of this kind of IV stand will be higher, in addition to the original structure, it also needs to have a wheel function underneath.
In fact, many of the IV stand used to be quite simple, and were made of wooden sticks, similar to coat hangers, to place the infusion. But because the loss of wood is relatively large, and the hospital because itself is the need for high-intensity sterilization, so the wooden loss will be particularly fast, now most of the use of stainless steel infusion rod, so that can be carried out for many years without changing, and can be for the role of corrosion to reduce the impact to a minimum. Therefore, the price of stainless steel IV stand is slightly higher.
Even simple IV stand need to take into account the actual use of the patient's problems, and also the handling, installation and other problems. Previously, the IV stand were all integral, so handling often required a special height of the carrier to handle. But now many IV stand manufacturers have made more disassembly features, not only that, but also more perfect support devices for smooth infusion paths according to the length and height of the patient's infusion, so that the patient can avoid backflow of blood due to low height or poor infusion, so the price of these patented IV stand is slightly higher.
In fact, nowadays, many hospitals, even some private hospitals, are quite attached to IV stand, and the price also varies greatly, some cheaper ones may be a hundred dollars, but some multi-functional ones need to be priced at several thousand dollars. Then you can buy in bulk by more than one to reduce the price of IV stand to some extent.
When the price of an item is getting higher, it directly means that the demand for that product is getting higher, and IV stand are one of them. The patient is already in pain, is it possible that the patient enjoys limited comfort in the process of treatment is also what many people are seeking now. From the previous single sitting straight to infusion, to now being able to lie down and be able to infuse according to their most comfortable angle and height is already an improvement. This is why the price of IV stand is getting higher and higher, especially for the many details that are now being improved to enhance the experience, with patented IV stand being a very good example.
Patients in the hospital are more concerned about their condition, the best treatment they can do, the best treatment effect, not the price of IV stand, but for the hospital or clinic, if you can use the best and most modern, the most humane IV stand, can provide more convenient services to patients of the equipment, so that is the real patient-oriented!
