The Philippine Red Cross has just received a fleet of ambulances that are specially-built to transport COVID-19 patients. This is the Foton Toano Negative Pressure Ambulance, and the PRC is the first to have them in the country.
The ambulance, also known as the 'Mobile N95 Solution', is unique in that it isolates the COVID-19 patient from the vehicle cabin in order to keep the driver and the medical technicians safe from catching the virus while in transport. It also comes standard with the following medical equipment like a ventilator, defibrillator, ECG monitor, ultraviolet disinfection lamp, and a center oxygen system.
Measuring 6 meters long and 1.7 meters tall, the Toano Negative Pressure Ambulance is also one of the roomiest ambulances that emergency medical technicians (EMTs) can use. This translates to a bigger space to work on, as well as putting more equipment should the need arise.
“As the virus continues to spread the demand for professional ambulance equipment in the Philippines has started to increase and we are here to provide the solution for your medical mobility needs,” said Rommel Sytin, president of United Asia Automotive Group Inc. (UAAGI), distributor of Foton vehicles in the country.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting the country, Foton Philippines believes that their Negative Pressure ambulances will be able to help our front liners. Foton is also providing regular ambulances units of the Toano, and the Transvan HR for sale in their 29 dealerships nationwide.
