A stretcher is an apparatus used for moving patients who require medical care. A basic type must be carried by two or more people. Stretchers are primarily used in acute out-of-hospital care situations by emergency medical services (EMS), military, and search and rescue personnel. A wheeled stretcher (known as a gurney, trolley, bed or cart) is often equipped with variable height frames, wheels, tracks, or skids.
Then do you know what the types of stretchers?
1.Lifting stretcher and stretcher with wheel
2, scoop stretcher
The scoop stretcher consists of two aluminum alloy plates on the left and right. When carrying the wounded, first place the injured person in the supine position, fix the neck, and then insert the left and right pieces of the stretcher from the side of the injured person into the back, and then carry it after fastening.
3, negative pressure inflatable cushion type fixed stretcher
The use of a negative pressure inflatable padded stretcher is the best tool for handling multiple fractures and injuries to the spine. When using it, the pad is first inflated and then flattened, the wounded person is placed in the pad, the air in the bag is taken out, the air cushion can be hardened, and the wounded person is firmly fixed therein, and can be kept stable during the transportation.
4, basket stretcher
Also known as "Stoke Basket", its shape is similar to its name, like a "boat". When the trapped person is transported, the trapped person is placed in the stretcher. The stretcher is "closed" inside the stretcher with the front side of the flat belt on the "protrusion" edge. This will not cause the trapped person to leave the stretcher due to the displacement of the stretcher (such as flipping and shaking). Behind the security, there are also some hidden dangers. If the trapped person is overweight, and the sling that is tied to the front side is too tight and the operation time is too long, it is easy to cause the trapped person to have chest tightness and suffocation. The situation in the North American fire industry that the trapped person will die in the basket stretcher due to improper disposal is called "iron coffin" (the early basket stretcher is mostly aluminum alloy)
5, soft stretcher
Also known as the "Sked", it is similar in use to the basket stretcher, but is lighter in weight (8 to 12 kg) and can be rolled up in a roller or backpack. Its raw material is a special synthetic resin, which is corrosion-resistant and generally orange.
