Canada's First Ambulance for Obese Patients

A great move.


The Bariatric Response Team at workRegardless of your thoughts on the problems associated with obesity, this is surely a positive step. Calgary paramedics are now driving the first ambulance designed to carry heavier patients (anywhere from 400 lb to 1,000 lb) safely to their destination. If you're in need of urgent medical treatment, you certainly don't want to be wondering how you're going to get to the hospital.

A great move.
