Ambulance service is just that; a service. Usually a privatecompany, providing a service (showing up and quickly getting you toa hospital when you call 911). They don't get paid by the hospitalor the "ambulance fairy", so generally when you are transported byambulance, you get a bill from them as yo…u would any otherbusiness. Many times insurance covers the cost, and if someone hasno insurance, you get a bill for the cost of the driver, themedical staff, insurance etc... the costs of emergencytransportation. Think of it as a "super-qualifed medical taxi". ( Full Answer )

In America, on a ground vehicle ambulance, nurses are not required and almost never attend. Pretty much the only time you'll see a nurse in a standard ambulance, is if one of the EMT's is training to become a nurse.. Medivac Flights (chopper or plane), however, almost always have at least one nurse… on crew.. Other countries use different protocols and may dispatch doctors and/or nurses with the unit.

It's a caduceus, a staff with a snake around it ... the ancient sign of a medical person. Not to be confused with the staff of Mercury (messenger of the gods) who had a pair of snakes. Unfortunately the U S Army did mix them up, and confused almost everyone.

Type 1 Diabetes is also referred to as Juvenile Diabetes. Therefore, children are most likely to develop this disease rather than adults. Juvenile Diabetes is completely different than Type 2 Diabetes in origin, though the symptoms can become more similar over time. I cringe when I hear Juvenile D…iabetes, because Type 1 Diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking the insulin producing gland in the pancreas. That means age is not a factor, young adults ages 18-25 may develop Type 1 diabetes. It simply means your body does not produce insulin. Yes, Type 1 diabetics are diagnosed mostly during early childhood years, however many young adults develop type 1 Diabetes because it is a immune disorder. ( Full Answer )

It means that the person in the ambulance is not critical, but they still need to hurry and get to a hospital..so it's just a "let us through" kind of thing.
Activation of lights OR siren indicates that there is an emergency . Please be courteous and assume nothing else or lives can be jeopardized. While local laws may vary , the general rule of thumb is... 1. All drivers and pedestrians should attempt to safely move to the side of the road (movi…ng right is typically accepted unless the ambulance is using the right lane to pass). 2. After safely moving from the lane of travel, bring your vehicle to a safe stop . This applies whether the ambulance is behind you or approaching from the other direction. If the ambulance is approaching you and has to turn left, waiting until the last minute will delay their response or cause you to hard brake. Hard brakes may cause you to be rear-ended. 3. Never speed up in attempt to outrun any emergency vehicle. 4. Do not panic and slam on the brakes. 5. Do not assume that the ambulance should go around you. While transporting a patient, medical procedures are occurring in the back. Changing lanes creates unnecessary motion that can delay or prevent procedures from being completed correctly. That said, if the lights are activated without a siren, it is possible that someone just forgot to turn the switch off. It's uncommon, but it does happen sometimes! Don't fail to yield right of way if you see this though, because: 1. We do what is best for the patient. It may still be an emergency. The siren may have deactivated en route to an emergency or while transporting. The best decision for the patient may be to carefully transport with lights only, instead of waiting on another ambulance that is far away. 2. We try to keep everyone happy. Some communities complain about sirens, so they are used intermittently in attempt to please the public. This is especially true in residential areas during late night hours. Hope this helps you help us help others. Take care! ( Full Answer )

It is probably a reference to a system which (if it is installed) "reads" signals from authorized emergency vehcles (law enforcement, EMS or FD) and automatically changes the intersection traffic lights to favor the direction in which the emergency vehicle is travelling.
The Latin verb ambulo means "I walk". Ambulant is the third person plural: they walk, they are walking.
If they're the numbers I believe you're talking about, it's the squad and ambulance number. In NJ, rescue squads start with a 1 followed by two numbers. Then you'll have a hyphen and the ambulance number. So if you have squad 151, they may have 3 ambulances. These would be 151-1, 151-2, and 151-3.
Ambulance attendant is an old name for what is now known as an EMT or paramedic. In today's ambulances there are two people in each vehicle, supplemented by additional persons from the fire department in the case of a critical transport. In the case where two people involved, there is a driver and a…n attendant. The attendant, who is either an EMT or paramedic, is the one who sits in the ambulance with the patient until they arrived at a hospital. Ambulance drivers, who are often also EMT or paramedics, are going to be charged with driving the ambulance. If the driver is an EMT or paramedic he will take that role once he arrives at the pickup site or the hospital. ( Full Answer )
So a driver in front of the ambulance can read the word in his/her rear view mirror. Write the word ambulance on a piece of paper and write the word ambulance backwards on the same piece of paper. Hold the paper up to a mirror and you will see that the backwards word is now the right way and the r…ight way word is now backwards ( Full Answer )
It depends on where you are in the world. In the US, most ambulances sirens have 2 or 3 settings....a long, slowly ascending and descending Whooo sound, a short rapidly ascending and descending warble tone, and sometimes a 3rd, higher, louder, phazer sound (my favorite to get attention of complace…nt drivers). Rarely , US rigs will have a European, up/down, British, DA/da/DA/da/DA tone. We have 1 rig at our department with the rare European setting. I love to use that setting through intersections here in the US just to mess with people, because most Americans have never heard that tone, except in movies. Ambulances in the US also have either a genuine air powered horn (awesome), and/or an electronic simulated air horn sound (lame). If you pay attention, before long you will able to tell the difference between police, ambulance, fire engines, and personally owned emergency response sirens just by the subtle sounds of each siren. The loudest, best siren is the air powered siren on the Fire Engines. They are controlled by a foot button located on the floor of both the driver and passenger/officer seat of the engine, an air pump, and a big, loud, steel speaker horn. They are easily the loudest siren available. Some police cars in the US have a "Rumbler Siren" that bottoms out at a subsonic level to send shock waves into the ground and surrounding areas, so that even if you have a crazy loud stereo cranked up in your car, you will feel the police siren in your bones....pretty cool. Ambulance sirens are usually between 100 and 200 watts of powered sound, and about half of the drivers on the road are completely oblivious to both lights and sirens until you are really close. When you see emergency lights behind you with a siren in America, pull to the RIGHT and stop. They will always pass you on the left in the US. If it a cop, you will notice blue lights. It is very rare for any other emergency vehicles to employ blue lights in their ensemble...and usually illegal. If an unmarked police car attempts to pull you over, call 911 and verify the identity of the unmarked car before pulling over, or drive to the local PD if it is close. Although illegal, it is not hard hard to obtain emergency lights in the US, and is a tool used by criminals to pull over victims. Rare, but it happens. ( Full Answer )
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. ( Full Answer )
This is an interesting dream. It could mean double trouble since the ambulance may already have injured people and then it falls from the sky. Or it could mean help coming out of nowhere when you need it most. It could also be an allusion to Divine Intervention. Many associate Heaven and God with th…e sky, and most associate ambulances with emergency help. ( Full Answer )
