Our Services

Basic Life Support

MaxCare Ambulance’s Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundation of our medical transport services. Each BLS unit is comprised of 2 highly skilled Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) who deliver professional care to every patient being transported. The transport unit carries the latest iPad technology and Stryker gurney. It is also fully stocked with essential medical supplies such as oxygen, an AED, epinephrine, naloxone, cervical collars, spinal stabilization boards, splinting supplies, bandages, suction units, cold packs, emergency thermal blankets, and many other items. We abide by all CHP and San Diego County EMS agency guidelines.

Critical Care Transport

Critical Care Transports are comprised of 2 EMTs and 1 Registered Nurse (RN) with experience in a critical care setting and possess required certifications. The ambulance will have a ventilator, Defibrillator, Portable IV pump, and a medicine bag. Patients that typically require a critical care transportation are those on hemodynamic and cardiac monitoring systems, mechanical ventilator, intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABO), ventricular assist devices (LVAD and RVAD), continuous renal replacement equipment (CRRT/CVVHDF), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation circuits (ECMO), and other advanced support devices.

Bariatric Transports

MaxCare Ambulance specializes in the safe transport of bariatric patients. We have the ability to securely and comfortably transport larger patients, from 300lbs to 850lbs. In an environment with an increasing need for this type of service, MaxCare is committed to ensuring the safety, dignity, and comfort of its growing number of bariatric patients. We use a specially designed gurney which is wider and can support more weight than a traditional gurney.

Medevac

MaxCare Ambulance meets medical flight team and air ambulance at the airfield and provides ground transportation for the patient to the facility and/or hospital.

MaxCare Ambulance does not own or operate any airplanes that provide the air ambulance service; we provide ground transportation in partnership with air ambulance providers.

Neonatal

Neonatal intensive care facilities require optimal care of premature and acute infants during transportation to hospitals with neonatal intensive care and other specialized services. Our Neonatal transport crews utilize mobile intensive care incubators fitted with mechanical ventilators, infusion pumps and physiological monitors capable of being used in a mobile environment in compliance with neonatal guidelines ensuring quality patient care and safety. These transport systems seek to emulate the environment of a neonatal intensive care unit and permit un-interrupted care to occur during the journey by road or air ambulance.

Event Standby

MaxCare Ambulance’s staff is highly trained to offer medical support during special events such as 5ks, street fairs, festivals, and supporting events.
