20 years of saving lives, together.Thank you for your support!

It’s thanks to your support that we have been able to save lives for the past 20 years. We simply wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the people who have raised awareness and donated their time, energy and money since the year 2000. Together we save lives.

HEMS Equipment - Zoll Monitor

15 March 2019

This is one of the most vital pieces of kit that our critical care teams carry, costing £34,000 each. 

Every patient is attached to the monitor, which measures vital signs, including: blood pressure, pulse rate, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation. It also works as a defibrillator, carries out cardiac pacing and prints-out patient results. 

Each patient is connected to the device and provided with continuous monitor and assessment - staying attached to the monitor until they arrive at hospital, where their care is handed over to the hospital team.

EAAA have six monitors - one for each helicopter, one for each rapid response vehicle (RRV) and a spare at each base. The monitors are replaced every five years, and we are looking to replace them early this year.
