Primary Medical Response
Secmed offers Primary Medical Response Vehicles ready 24 hours a day to respond to your business/school and manage any medical emergency until an ambulance arrives.
This services means we are able to rapidly respond to you, and stabilise the patient prior to the arrival of the ambulance.
Medical emergencies at schools have become increasingly serious in South Africa and there are more casualties almost on a daily basis. Roads leading to these casualties are being closed-off and redirected as the maps provided to the typical GPS used in emergency vehicles are not updated at the same pace.
Seconds Matter In An Emergency!
Emergency Medical Staff are trained in levels to be able to respond to, and handle medical emergencies in three main categories.
There are specific time-critical factors for the different life threatening emergencies;
• Heart Attacks - 7 minutes;
• Stop Breathing - Brain - 4 minutes;
• Stroke - The sooner the patient can obtain proper medical attention - the better.
The minimum time it takes an ambulance to handle a specific call is 45 minutes;
• More often than not, this is NOT the case, and this time is exceeded!
• Your Emergency simply has to fall in the back of the queue;
