Dedicated to providing solutions to every transport need, we at Bay Star have trained and educated our fully qualified staff in even the most obscure transport environment, from neonatal and pediatric transport services, to bariatric and critical care. Just remember at Bay Star Ambulance Service, “We Do It All!”
BariatricWe can safely transport up to 1200 lbs, with custom ramps, stretchers, and a wench.
Our experienced transport teams are trained in neonatal care and much more.
We do more pediatric transports than any other service in Houston.
Bay Star is the trusted name when it comes to transporting the most critical patients.
We Can Do It All!
Intubation, sometimes entubation, is the insertion of a tube into an external or internal orifice of the body for the purpose of adding or removing fluids or air.
It is sometimes considered synonymous with tracheal intubation, but it can also involve the gastrointestinal tract, as with balloon tamponade with a Sengstaken-Blakemore tube.
Intubation into the trachea may be performed through the mouth (orotracheal intubation) or through the nose (nasotracheal intubation).
A medical ventilator can be defined as any machine designed to mechanically move breatheable air into and out of the lungs, to provide the mechanism of breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently.
While modern ventilators are generally thought of as computerized machines, patients can be ventilated indefinitely with a bag valve mask, a simple hand-operated machine.
After Hurricane Katrina, dedicated staff “bagged” patients in New Orleans hospitals for days with simple bag valve masks.
Ventilators are chiefly used in intensive care medicine, home care, and emergency medicine (as standalone units) and in anesthesia (as a component of an anesthesia machine).
