Overview

Background & Policy context

New generation emergency vehicles incorporate new technologies that are often underutilized by emergency services. New medical devices such as electrocardiograms are only partially "communicating" and appear to be produced without pre-integration in ambulances. The majority of information exchange between field emergency crews in ambulances and control centers are still made orally.

Objectives

The "Connecting Ambulance" (AMBUCOM) project aimed at rethinking the concept of first emergency vehicles and define the ambulance of tomorrow. Its main objectives were

  • to strengthen the exchange of data between field teams and emergency centers in order to improve and accelerate first aid victims;
  • to change both physical and mechanical characteristics of the vehicle to reduce the harmful effects of transport on the victims.

Results

With the development of new communication tools and the standardization of data exchange with the Civil Security Software NF, emergency intervention methods evolved towards a single model of permanent and efficient communication between field teams and medical control and care facilities. The exchange of information in real time with no double entry and limitation of oral transmission are factors of success for both victims’ first aid and decision making.
