Bloomington Fire Department news

Excerpts from

There’s a new handheld tool to help diagnose heart attacks and other issues while in a Bloomington Fire Department ambulance. It’s called a Kosmos scanner, by Echonous. It uses ultrasound to give EMT’s a more accurate look at a patient’s lungs or heart, especially in the event of a heart attack. That ultrasound unit works with the same type of gel you might be familiar with in pregnancies.

At this point, only Bloomington’s station 2 has the Kosmos device.
