Specialty Equipment

In addition to the standard equipment carried on most Physicians Transport Service ambulances, many units are equipped, or have the potential to be equipped, with equipment to serve special patient needs.
Bariatric Cot
Medical Air Equipped Units


Stryker Bariatric Cot

All PTS units are now equipped with Stryker MX-Pro cots with a weight capacity of up to 650 pounds.  However, PTS also has two units capable of utilizing our MX-Pro Bariatric cot, with a weight capacity of up to 1,600 pounds.  This provides for greater comfort and safer transport of bariatric patients.





Medical Air
While all Physicians Transport Service ambulances are equipped with medical oxygen, two PTS medic units are also equipped with medical air capabilities.  Medical air is often used in combination with oxygen on ventilators and incubators, and allows for longer distance transports than simply carrying small portable air cylinders.
