Ferno launches new critical care transfer trolley


Emergency services product ensures safe transfer of critically ill patients

Ferno, the world-leading manufacturer of medical equipment to emergency services, has launched a new critical care transfer (CCT) trolley, specially adapted for use on aircraft including helicopters.

The CCT Trolley is adapted to carry all the life-supporting equipment necessary for safely transporting both pre- and post-operative heart patients as well as patients recovered from a life-threatening accident by an air ambulance.

The trolley includes the latest technology to enable clinicians and paramedics to constantly monitor a patient’s condition, helping to ensure these vulnerable patients get the best possible care when they need it most.

It also enables ambulance and air ambulance crews to transfer patients quickly and easily with no need to disconnect vital life-supporting equipment, significantly reducing the risk of complications.

Ferno managing director, Jon Ellis, said: “Nothing like this has been developed before and our research and development team have invested a lot of time and effort to deliver a product that specifically meets the needs of the air ambulance service which is a very exacting brief.

“With the launch of our new CCT Trolley, air ambulance paramedics and doctors now have access to all the life support systems most clinicians would associate with a hospital operating theatre or critical care ward. This means that more lives will be saved.”
