EMS workers seem to finally be getting the message and taking their own safety more seriously, acknowledging that ambulances and emergency vehicles arenÌt rolling fortresses, and that people and equipment inside the ambulance need to be secured to prevent injury or death in the event of a collision or sudden stop. One of the heaviest pieces of portable equipment in an ambulance is the cardiac monitor/defibrillator, which can be a lethal projectile during a collision. To protect you from injury, Allure Medical offers the Defibrillator Mounting System, which quickly secures your Physio-Control LIFEPAK 12, Zoll M & E Series and Philips Medical MRx monitors while allowing rotation for easy viewing.
