"A baby is God`s opinion that the world should go on." Carl Sandburg
Caring for a newborn is one of the greatest challenges we daily face. One of AMBULINE missions is to provide specialized newborn emergency and intensive care to all newborns in Cyprus. Our aim is to achieve the highest standard of intensive care treatment for all babies. This is the reason besides new born babies are also treated with the best, professional care by AMBULINE staff.
The basic stabilisation of a neonate, as part of the pre-hospital care comprising of managing and maintaining the airway, breathing and circulation is taken care of in our ambulances. Advanced life support systems such as incubator with ventilator, cardiograph, pulse-oxymeter and specialized equipment to monitor the vitals are available in our ambulances.
With our own incubators and our specially designed ambulances for neonates’ transportation, we daily transfer neonates safely from the referring unit to the receiving unit (usually at Makario Hospital, Nicosia).
NEONATAL AND PAEDIATRIC INTENSIVE CARE UNIT AMBULANCE
A specially designed Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit Ambulance hit Cyprus’ streets. We have recently expanded our fleet of ambulance with the addition of a children`s themed ambulance:
"The Minnie and Mickey Mouse Ambulance" is the new addition to AMBULINE’s fleet!
This new highly-specialized Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit Ambulance will ensure Cyprus’ most vulnerable and tiniest patients receive the best possible care when transporting between hospitals. Newborns born prematurely or children who have sustained a traumatic injury benefit from our ability to provide rapid, high-quality neonatal and paediatric expertise and equipment on-the-go.
"The Minnie and Mickey Mouse Ambulance" ambulance will replace the current ambulance that has been used over the past 12 years for neonates’ and children’s transports between health facilities.
Every parent knows that an ambulance journey with a child can be very traumatic. However within "The Minnie and Mickey Mouse Ambulance" everything will be so visually appealing to the child and the ambulance fear that most of the kids have will disappear in a moment. The smiling faces of Mickey and Minnie Mouse that decorate the inside of the ambulance, the vivid colours together with the talking toys of Mickey and Minnie mouse transform the ambulance environment into a friendly, relaxed and entertaining one.
All the newborn and young patients will receive the AMBULINE’s themed mascot: a BIG Minnie or Mickey Mouse soft toy!
