Abstract

An ambulance cot and accessories therefor. The ambulance cot has (1) a docking mechanism for facilitating an anchoring of the litter frame to the floor of the cargo area of an ambulance; (2) an articulated patient support deck on the litter frame capable of raising and lowering a head section while simultaneously raising and lowering a foot section or orienting the foot section to form an inverted V-shaped gatch supporting the knees at a position elevated with respect to the patient's hip; (3) a pair of stowable pull handles at opposite ends of the ambulance cot are provided to facilitate an ease of manipulation of the ambulance cot while the wheels are engaged with the floor for transport of the patient from one location to another; (4) an upstanding push bar in each of the four corners of the cot; and (5) a support of an incubator assembly.
