The modular body of the Critical Care Transport is self-contained and capable of operating independently from the chassis in the event of a vehicle breakdown or accident. This allows emergency-response personnel to continue to deliver lifesaving support.
"Our new Critical Care Transport brings a high level of intensive care to patients in the field," said Dave Reid, senior vice president, Emergency Response Vehicles for Spartan Motors. "Whether transporting a premature newborn or handling triage after a hurricane, the Critical Care Transport carries the medical equipment needed to care for the most critically ill and medically fragile patients."
"We feel that the new Critical Care Transport is the finest provider of pre-hospital medical care available today on the market."
The Critical Care Transport can be equipped with:
- Satellite communication system
- Multiple oxygen or compressed air tanks
- Redundant electrical systems
- Patient and cot lifts
- Isolettes for premature infants
- Generators or inverters to create either 12-volt AC or 12-volt DC power
- Special heat and air conditioning
The new Critical Care Transport ambulance can be used as follows: cardiac transport, neo-natal care, backup to emergency helicopters in the event of poor weather conditions, on-call for large or state police dispatch centers, natural disaster support, mobile medical clinics.
