ATA MEDICAL‘s isolated patient transport chamber (CTMP) is used by the AMREF Flying Doctors Team in their ambulance in Tanzania for a case of neonatal medical evacuation. Their CTMP is more robust than the models in plastic and is able to better withstand shocks during the transportation.
CTMP is a transport chamber which protects the patient or the external environment from any cross contamination that could occur during land or air transport.
Neonatal medical evacuation often presents the biggest medical challenges, particularly in aeromedical transport. To provide the absolute best service, specialist knowledge and equipment is required.
ATA MEDICAL provided the isolated patient transport chamber in a protected environment to the AMREF Flying Doctors team, in charge of the urgent evacuation of the 27-week-old infant to a specialized establishment in Kisula, Tanzania.
The chamber can operate in negative or positive pressure mode:
- Negative pressure: to transport infected patients or patients suspected of biological contaminations such as : COVID-19, viral hemorrhagic fever, SRAS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), smallpox, tuberculosis, meningitis, Ebola, etc.
- Positive pressure : for protection and transport of immuno-compromised patients : bubble child, aplasia, etc.
CTMP provides a stress-free transportation:
- For medical staff in charge of transport who is protected against any risk of contamination
- For the ambulance driver who does not need to wear any special protective outfit and to disinfect the vehicle
- For hospital reception staff who can safely take care of the patient without any risk of contamination of the premises or other patients and who can easily clean the chamber.
ATA also provides air treatment solutions for the medical sector and developed solutions especially dedicated to hospitals with a strong focus on hygiene. As part of the fight against the coronavirus disease pandemic, Ivory Coast has called on ATA solutions for air decontamination.
