Manipal Ambulance Response Services (MARS), provides 360-degree pre-hospital care during the golden hour in critical emergencies. Manipal has one of the largest fleets of ambulances in different cities. These Ambulances come with critical life-saving equipment like ventilators/defibrillators, monitors, inbuilt ECG machines/syringe pumps and other equipment which helps to monitor critical patients.
The first hour following an emergency is called the golden hour. The earlier the patient reaches the hospital the better are the chances for any treatment to be effective. Beyond the first hour, the body’s compensatory response starts to fail and resuscitating the patient becomes more difficult. When an emergency call comes to the command center, an emergency response officer understands the type of emergency and the location of the patient to deploy the nearest ambulance. If it's a critical emergency the same call will be transferred to the doctor working in the ER 24x7 to understand the clinical condition and based on which an ambulance will be assigned.
Basic Life Support(BLS) certified Emergency team gives the first aid and stabilizes the patient in the ambulance. There is also a central monitoring system to relay LIVE information about the patient's condition directly to an ALS (Advanced Life Support) trained emergency response centre physician. The patient is stabilized in the ambulance itself and gets the required care for he/she reaches the hospital. The ambulances take the critically ill patients to the nearest emergency facility. Manipal Emergency Department has been efficiently treating emergency patients for the past twenty-five years.
One of the key reasons for failure following a medical emergency is because the patient was deprived of timely and quality medical assistance. Improper diagnosis and inadequate emergency treatment could turn out to be fatal. One should reach out for professional assistance immediately during an emergency.

How does MARS work?
When our exclusive command centre receives an emergency call, the MARS gets activated and is rushed to the patient.
The ambulance is equipped with a video monitoring system. Through this system, the technician that reaches the patient provides real-time information to the care team at Manipal hospitals.
The first response treatment is done at the home of the patient/ambulance by staff well-trained in emergency procedures, such as Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) etc.
The ambulance has the necessary facilities to perform these procedures and the trained technician performs the procedures under the guidance of specialists at Manipal hospitals
The availability of first-hand information about the patient’s condition through the video monitoring system helps the doctors to be prepared with the appropriate treatment plan when the patient reaches the hospital. It saves crucial time for the patients.
Once the patient reaches the hospital, the necessary emergency treatment is done.
