An infrared robotic intubation device, called the GuidIN Tube, is under development by Biodesign researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. This ingenious device uses infrared light externally applied to the throat to guide the tube towards the patient’s trachea and into the lungs. This will greatly help first responders in low light conditions, military personnel or with patients where fluids are present in the throat. The GuidIn Tube may help them get patients breathing a little quicker which would potentially save more lives.
We do a lot of work on Ambulances for sales purposes here at Global Emergency Vehicles, but recently we picked up this 1969 Ford Econoline 300 Ambulance as a project for our operation. It is very much a work in progress at this point, but overall it is in nice shape. We hope to one day have it as a show vehicle that will represent our business at EMS events and maybe even a few car shows.
