They are of two types: emergency aid (red lane) and patient transport (blue lane) ambulances.
Emergency Aid Ambulances include medical devices for intensive care transfers and first intervention. Emergency Aid Ambulances have a team of 3 people consisting of a doctor or paramedic, emergency medical technician and driver.
These ambulances are mainly equipped with monitors, defibrillators, transport ventilators, pulse oximeters, infusion pumps and medical equipment and medicines required for all emergency interventions, as well as medical devices and other materials specified in the “Regulation on Ambulances and Emergency Health Vehicles and Ambulance Services” published by the Ministry of Health in the Official Gazette dated 07.12.2006 and numbered 26369.
Patient Transport Ambulances are mostly used for hospital-home or home-hospital transfers of patients in stable condition. Two personnel, an emergency medical technician and an ambulance driver, work in transport ambulances. Patient transport ambulances are equipped with an automatic external defibrillator, which is a device that defibrillates the heart in emergencies without a doctor, a transport ventilator, and medical devices and other materials and medicines specified in the “Regulation on Ambulances and Emergency Health Vehicles and Ambulance Services” published in the Official Gazette dated 07.12.2006 and numbered 26369 by the Ministry of Health.
