Information about current or future non-invasive ventilation use by ambulance crews

The request was successful.

Martin Antoszczak

Dear East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

My name is Martin, I am a second year student paramedic currently investigating the use of non-invasive ventilation in UK ambulance services as part of one of my assignments. I would like to request the following information:

1. Is there any region within EMAS currently where ambulance crews* have access to non-invasive ventilation machines in the form of CPAP or Bi-PAP?

2. Is there any region within EMAS where there are plans to introduce non-invasive ventilation machines in the form of CPAP or Bi-PAP in the foreseeable future for ambulance crews*?

* Where ambulance crews refers to vehicles which are either paramedic-led or technician-led and responding to 999 calls.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Antoszczak
