North Central EMS recently added a mobile intensive care unit to their fleet to provide MICU transport services of critically ill and injured patients from area medical centers to tertiary level centers. Experienced and proficient EMS and RN crew members provide a level of service beyond the scope of the EMT-Paramedic (advanced life support). This higher level of care is necessary when a patient's condition requires constant medical attention that must be provided by one or more health professionals in an appropriate specialty area, e.g., nursing. Equipped for airway management, artificial ventilation, oxygenation, suction and patient monitoring, they provide care for the most acutely ill patients during transport.
The MICU registered nurses have decades of combined experience in critical care transport nursing and in the emergency department and ICU settings. Together this team will safely and expertly assist in the care of patients in all types of weather, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
North Central EMS provides emergency and non-emergency ambulance transportation, mobile intensive care transportation, specialized care transportation, wheelchair van services, paramedic bike team pre-hospital care, and mobile X-ray and Ultrasound services. EMS stations are located in Milan, Norwalk, Berlin Heights, Greenwich, Vermilion, Port Clinton, Woodville, Sandusky, Green Springs and Bellevue.
