An acronym for Advanced Cardiac Life Support is ACLS. This is a level of care for patients in critical condition. It is also commonly used to describe the type of care for transportation.
For a ground ambulance, ACLS is a set up for critical care transport. BLS,on the the other hand, is a short form of Basic Life Support. Patients who need non emergency transport usually will take a BLS ambulance.
If you have an emergency and need an ACLS ambulance, pick up the phone and dial 9-1-1.
The differences between an ACLS and BLS transport are the kinds of drugs onboard and sometimes the size of the ambulance. ACLS ambulances can be bigger for more room for equipment and life saving drugs.
Critical care, emergency, and ACLS transports are done on airplanes as well. We are available 24 hours a day to arrange an emergency ACLS air ambulance on your behalf.

I would like to thank everyone involved from turning a potentially difficult experience into an enjoyable one. My mother,Mary, and I enjoyed the flight, and the flight nurse, was terrific. He really allayed all our fears, and we felt perfect confidence in him.
The pilot and first officer were also wonderful and instilled great confidence in us. All in all, it was a marvelous trip and we can’t thank you enough!!!
This letter commends the efficiency and professionalism of your organization during the recent transport of our aunt, Lisa Cordero, from New York City to Cleveland. The flight crew was courteous and helpful. Your flight coordinators were exceptionally competent in arranging a quite difficult transfer.
Where we have had frustrations with lawyers, bankers, and doctors, we had only the most ‘can do’ attitude from all of your staff. We have recommended your service to a colleague and will continue to do so without hesitation.
