“Patuloy ang pamimigay natin ng mga ambulansya para magamit sa pagbibigay ng mabilis na serbisyong medikal at pangkalusugan lalo na ngayong may pandemya. Ito ay kompleto ng mga first aid medical equipment at supplies na syang pangunahing kailangan sa pagresponde sa mga medical emergency lalo na sa mga nakatira sa malalayong lugar sa probinsya,” Director Eduardo C. Janairo emphasized.

The ambulance is equipped with stretcher, automatic external defibrillator (AED), nebulizer, portable suction machine, examining light, aneroid sphygmomanometer wall mounted, folding stretcher, scoop stretcher, heavy duty stethoscope adult/pedia, non-contact thermometer, blood glucose meter with strip, manual resuscitator for adult, pediatric and infant, oxygen cylinder with oxygen therapy set, laymgoscope set, immobilization devices, delivery set, fire extinguisher, dashcam with memory card (front and back), digital clock, cellular phones (2 pieces), IV holder, air purifier, LED flashlight, USB connector (for driver’s cabin accessories), sharps container, garbage container and extra set of tools.

“Napakaimportante na ang mga ambulansya ay may kakayahang magligtas ng buhay at hindi lang magsilbing transportasyon lamang ng pasyente.”

“Patuloy po ang DOH-Calabarzon sa pagbibigay ng mga kinakailangang kagamitan sa ating mga pampublikong hospital upang mapalakas ang kanilang serbisyo medikal at makapagbigay ng maayos at mabilis na serbisyong pangkalusugan sa ating mga kababayan,” Janairo said.
