Advanced Life Support

Access Ambulance’s EMT Paramedics and EMT Advanced level providers can provide lifesaving care en-route to the hospital with
Advanced Life Support skills

What is Advanced Life Support (ALS)?

While our Basic Life Support (BLS) service is a prescheduled transport for patients transferring facilities, Advanced Life Support tends to focus on a specialized  inter-facility transport.

When Access Ambulance’s team performs Advanced Life Support, the patient is typically in the comfort of our vehicle. We’re able to monitor vitals, start drug therapy, do cardiac monitoring, and start IV therapy. Our ambulances also have CPAP and other advanced treatment options such as ventilator transports.

If you call Access Ambulance in Massachusetts, our team of certified EMT Paramedics and Advanced providers will care for the patient. In Rhode Island, your loved one will be in the capable hands of our EMT Cardiacs. Our team is specially trained just for Advanced Life Support and they’re skilled to do effective, compassionate care to quickly save lives.

What patients should get Advanced Life Support?

If your loved one needs medical monitoring while transferring to another facility and they’re stable, they likely will only need Basic Life Support. However, if the patient meets these criteria, they may qualify for Advanced Life Support:

  • Cardiac monitoring, including 12-Lead acquisition and interpretation. 
  • Urgent care transport.
  • Compromised airway care, including ventilator support. 
  • IV and drug therapy.
  • Obstetrical care.
  • Spacious, modular chassis ALS vehicles
  • Our ALS providers strictly follow all  Statewide Treatment Protocols to ensure optimal care
