In response to the COVID-19 Crisis, Colbrow Medics is supporting Australian businesses with Urgent Medical Services

Onsite Medical Assistance Teams

Colbrow Medics has the resources and capacity to deliver Medical Assistance Teams (MAT), both nationally and internationally. Our MAT Teams consist of a group of Critical Care Doctors, Critical Care Nurses and Registered Paramedics who can provide an advanced level of clinical care onsite with the aim of reducing the impact on local emergency services and hospitals.  MATs are often deployed to disasters when there are not enough resources to have all casualties transported to hospital.  This is a similar logistical challenge faced by major events.  Colbrow can provide a full scope of healthcare practise (MAT3) including: Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI), Cardiac Arrest (ACLS level), management of drug overdoses, full medical intervention capability including administration of IV fluids, medication as well as primary healthcare.

Our multidisciplinary Medical Assistance Teams are usually deployed to high risk workplaces and events where there is a possibility for employees or patrons to require critical care medical service, or medical services beyond the level of first aid, such that these patients can be assessed, treated and either rapidly moved to a hospital environment for continued care, or be treated and discharged onsite, delaying or preventing a hospital presentation.

Practically, this means that patients at our medical tents are able to obtain the kind of expert critical care they’d typically receive in a hospital Emergency Department.  No need for waiting for an ambulance or the time to get to hospital; a high level of critical care is available on the spot.

Ensure your workplace, event or site is covered by our highly skilled and equipped Medical Assistance Teams.
