DEPARTMENT / UNIT SUMMARY:
In August 2019, Vanderbilt LifeFlight Vanderbilt LifeFlight expanded its ability to transport critically injured patients from the air to include two new specialized ambulance and personnel for critical care ground ambulance transport. Each ambulance is staffed 24/7 by an AEMT, a Critical Care Paramedic and a Critical Care Nurse. The ambulance is based at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and will respond to variable locations including Clarksville, Lebanon, and Nashville. With the additional two ground specialized ambulances, Vanderbilt LifeFlight has a fleet of 23 transport modes - 13 ground ambulances, nine helicopters and one airplane.
One set of patients that will benefit from this new mode of transport is those that need Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatment. This is a very specialized procedure that uses a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream. ECMO acts as an artificial heart and lung for the patient during ECMO therapy.
