Morbidly Obese Gaining Weight

 Ambulance serves morbidly obese

 Vehicle's gurney capable of holding up to 1,600 pounds

A statement in Wednesday’s Review-Journal by American Medical Response official Roy Carroll concerning the frequency of the ambulance company’s response to obese patients was incorrect. Carroll says that in the past six months, AMR paramedics have, on at least 75 occasions, requested additional backup to move large bariatric patients.

Several times a month, American Medical Response crews roll out on calls for individuals weighing upwards of 600 pounds.

Often times, to lift and place the patient into the ambulance, responding EMTs and paramedics will get creative, using special means such as wooden boards. But offering emergency or commercial medical services to people who are morbidly obese requires much more than the traditional ambulance, EMT and paramedic.
