At 9:46 last night (2nd), Magpas Doctor Saad Jawaid and Paramedic Ollie Robinson arrived in Bedford via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle. They had been called after a car left the road and ended up in a ditch – where a man was found in cardiac arrest.
When the Magpas enhanced medical team arrived, an EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew had successfully resuscitated the patient (in his 70’s). The Magpas medical team then performed a road side surgical procedure, providing the man with enhanced A&E level care, after he went into a second cardiac arrest. The Magpas doctor and paramedic then accompanied the patient to Bedford Hospital, in a land ambulance, where upon arrival the man was in critical condition.
A Magpas Air Ambulance spokesperson said “This incident highlights how we can bring vital hospital level care to seriously ill patients when time is of the essence, 24/7 in the East of England and beyond.”
Bedfordshire police were also in attendance.
