Utilizing Technology to Improve Patient Outcomes

I think one of the greatest things about being a paramedic at the Ambulance Service of Manchester is having access to some of the highest quality equipment, paired with advanced level high fidelity training. For example, we are one of the only services in the State of Connecticut whom supplies a multimode ventilator with BiPAP capabilities on every single paramedic level ambulance and fly-car.  These advanced ventilators allow us not only to provide high-quality advanced critical care interfacility transports but also allow us to provide ICU level care in the field to our high acuity emergent patients in any of the communities in which we serve.

ASM Supports Manchester High School Students Vision

Gentle Love Diaper Pantry is a youth-run nonprofit organization based in Manchester, CT that connects families who face economic barriers with diapers and other baby essentials. The organization was started by Kyle Zingler, a junior at Manchester High School, with the support of some of his classmates including Alexandra Hamza, Jabari Murphy, along with his sister Julia Zingler and her close friend, Sylvia Squatrito. One day in early April, Kyle’s mother, who works as the Director of Family, School, and Community Partnerships for Vernon Public Schools, described her struggles of connecting a mother involved in a domestic violence incident with diapers. Kyle was motivated to solve this injustice after learning that there were no diaper or baby supply pantries accessible to families in his community. After further research he also found that diapers were not covered under SNAP or WIC programs and that they amounted to a substantial expense for families, costing $70-$80 per a child per month. Since their launch in June, they have collected over 45,000 diapers, 37,000 wipes, and hundreds of other baby products through community drives which have been distributed through the MACC Food Pantry, the MPS Welcome Center, and the ECHN Family Development Center.
