On December 1, 2015, Indiana University Health LifeLine began offering Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) transport services, reflecting the same commitment to safety, patient care and customer service as our critical care services. This service is currently provided to a limited number of IU Health facilities in Indianapolis, but will continue to expand to a growing list of areas in Central Indiana.
Like all IU Health LifeLine services, our ALS/BLS transports are overseen by a board-certified medical director with established protocols focused on providing the best care for the patient. Our Communications Center specialists work closely with the requesting facility to determine the appropriate level of transport.
Multi-disciplinary Support from Indiana University Health
Our approach to ALS/BLS transport goes well beyond simply transporting patients from point A to point B. Through our affiliation with Indiana University Health, and our decades of experience in critical care, our teams provide the highest standard of care to every patient. Some of the benefits provided by IU Health LifeLine include:
- We arrive fully prepared for any special needs of patients based on the initial request
- As part of the comprehensive IU Health LifeLine team, we can quickly upgrade the transport to critical care if needed
- Non-Invasive airway management capabilities including BiPAP® and CPAP
IU Health LifeLine team members are fully trained, based on a wide range of clinical needs. All team members go through an initial detailed orientation, and continue with quarterly training to stay up-to-date.
IU Health LifeLine ambulances offer the latest in safety and patient care equipment, allowing our crews to care for any patient.
