Monitor Grants?
7 Replies

Our volunteer Fire Dept is making the transition to ALS.  We have a tiny budget as fire depts go.  Even for volunteer.  We need to acquire a monitor.  A phillips monitor is a third of our years…Continue

"Mike, another tactic you might try is your local transport service--many ALS transport agencies have one or two older monitors that they have taken out of service, perhaps they could loan you one to use (you'd probably have to have it serviced…"

"Previous response may also be off-topic. OP didn't make it clear whether the dept is going ALS transport, or ALS FR."

dr-exmedic replied to Michael King's discussion Monitor Grants?
"And I feel that if you're going to have an ALS first response, you may as well go all the way. Unlike getting an IV 10 minutes earlier, getting the cath lab activated 10 minutes earlier could be life-saving.* Maybe less so if you have a 30 min…"

Justin P replied to Michael King's discussion Monitor Grants?
"Mike, good question. I have worked as a Paramedic for 8 years now and was an EMT for 5 before that. A first responder organization that has timely ALS transport support (avg ALS response time 10 minutes or less) probably doesn't need a LP12/15.…"

Johnson Smithwood replied to Michael King's discussion Monitor Grants?
"There's a number of cases where 12 lead monitors aren't really needed. Do first responders in a good system where a 12 lead equipped transport unit is coming within 10 minutes really need it? There are arguments both ways.  If they…"

Johnson Smithwood replied to Michael King's discussion Monitor Grants?
"Dig around online, you can find used LP12's for around 5k. If 5k's going to break the bank, you might want to rethink going ALS until your finances are in a little bit better shape. If you don't need all the bells and whistles, used…"

Michael King replied to Bob Sullivan's discussion Transporting on fire trucks: a good idea?
"You can't give a set global answer on this question.  Is there circumstances that would warrant a BLS fire truck transport?  Absolutely yes!  In our BLS volunteer rural dept, there are times where a delay of 45 minutes for an ALS…"
