Paramedics need all types of equipment nearby to handle any type of crisis they may face. Many times medical equipment companies will group together products that compliment each other into a kit to help the EMT’s better do their job thanks to a lighter equipment load. The E-Surge Kit made by Vortran is one of those lightweight kits that help many occupations across the medical field.
The maker says this product, “is conveniently packaged for Emergency Backup Ventilator Surge and Response. It contains multi-outlet manifold stand, pressure regulator and gauge, VAR-Plus, VAR-Monitor, oxygen flow meter, heavy-duty oxygen hose, and HME filters.” The E-Surge is designed to be a short-term ventilator while out in the field or on scene of a crisis situation.
The E-Surge is a backup and disposable ventilator system that can operate and offer help to multiple patients at one time. The company claims that it’s more affordable than a standard ventilator that you might use in a hospital so medics and hospitals can stockpile the disposable ventilators. This would come in helpful during times of natural disaster or an enormous crisis. EMT’s can easily carry the E-Surge kit around while looking for survivors and the injured and administer life-saving oxygen.
