Boston Modifies Ambulance for Obese Patients

With Number of Obese Cases Increasing, Retrofitted Vehicle Can Transport Patients – and Spare Paramedics’ Backs

Boston’s ambulance service has modified one of its vehicles so it can handle the increasing number of obese patients that require transportation.

Officials say Boston Emergency Medical Services has to take anywhere from two to four patients weighing at least 450 pounds to area hospitals per week.

Capt. Jose Archila told The Boston Globe he’s seen patients as much as 700 pounds.

Experts say obese patients can put the health of paramedics in danger, who can injure their backs and necks lifting and moving the overweight.

Paramedic Russ Smith told the Globe he had displaced two vertebrae and strained his back muscles while transporting a woman who weighed at least 400 pounds.

The modified Boston ambulance that hits the streets later this month includes a hydraulic lift.

A stretcher that can bear the weight of 850 pounds, costing $8,000, is also included.

It cost about $12,000 to retrofit the vehicle.

The history of the ambulance and how its evolved

Like most things even the ambulance has had its roots embedded in the ancient times when carts were used to ferry patients along to the medicine man. We cannot think of the ambulance as anything but a modern emergency vehicle which is well equipped enough to save patient’s life.

However, the earliest of a record about transporting a patient by a hammock cart is in the Anglo Saxon era around 900 A.D. This means was strictly for patients afflicted with leprosy or the ones requiring psychiatric treatments. Even Muslim history has the record of mobile dispensaries in the time of Prophet Mohammed around the 7th century. These mobile dispensaries were used by soldiers in the army during the Muslim conquests.

Further the record of using ambulances near battlefields to treat wounded soldiers is found in the history of Spain. In the year 1487, ambulancias, the earliest of the ambulances was used to for the Spanish army which was usually treated well. The first major breakthrough in the history of ambulances came when the physician of Napolean Bonaparte, Dominique Jean Larrey designed ambulances out of two to four wheeler horse wagons that could pick up wounded soldiers from the battlefield and transport them to a safer place where they were treated.

In 1832 , during the time pf cholera in London transport carriages were first introduced. Later Jonathan Letterman and Joseph Barnes reworked the whole concept of ambulances and gave them the modern day look and design. Their original inspiration had been Larrey’s design.
