Ambulances may not be life savers always, but if they meet the platinum minutes and golden hour principle, many lives can be saved. A proposed bike ambulance service in Hyderabad, by the Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI) would see hundreds of paramedics reach medical supplies and take care of crucial emergency care until a regular ambulance arrives.
Apart from accident cases, the initiative with motorbike ambulances would see paramedics administer first aid in emergencies such as heart at tacks, strokes, poisoning and fire accidents. If the patient needs additional help, he or she would be shifted to a regular ambulance with advanced facilities such as ECG, ventilator, 24-hour UPS back-up and oxygen cylinders.Secunderabad, Mehdipatnam, Banjara Hills road number 1, Begumpet, Tarnaka, Paradise, Punjagutta, Malakpet, Jubilee hills, Dilsukhnagar, Nampally , Khairatabad, Langer house, Amberpet and Charminar are among spots identified as trauma spots based on analysis of calls for ambulance in case of accidents.
