On October 24, 2017 Republic of Kalmykia Head Alexey Orlov and CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban handed over the ambulances to the Republican Disaster Medicine Center.
In total 9 ambulances were handed over on October 24, 2017, which were bought using the charity funds of the International Consortium: 8 Class B vehicles and a Class A vehicle for the total value of almost 20 M Rubles. As a note, the Class A vehicles allow to transport patients, who do not require emergency aid during the transportation, together with medical staff. Class B vehicles provide for an opportunity of rendering emergency medical aid by a physician (paramedic) team during patient transportation and monitoring their condition at the stage of delivering them to an inpatient medical institution.
Specialized vehicles are supplied with all necessary equipment: monitor defibrillators, 3-lead ECG, equipment for controlled ventilation and assisted respiration, pulse-oxygen machines, glucose express metering instruments and other instrumentation.
