These ambulances will have Automated External Defibrillators, ECG/pulse oximetry monitors, centralised suction facility, pneumation splints, inbuilt oxygen and suction pipelines, spinal boards, comprehensive custom-made first aid kits, jumbo oxgen cylinders, extrication equipment, GPS for tracking and monitoring, wireless communication system and CCTV.

Neurosurgeon Dr Venkataramana N K said the Trust will work with the KSRTC to bring down the number of deaths in accidents involving KSRTC buses.
