What's new at the Oktoberfest ambulance service in 2022
A new feature this year is that the ambulance station is operated around the clock, i.e. if patients cannot be discharged, they are cared for there until the next day. This also relieves the burden on Munich's hospitals.
Technical upgrades have also been made: The IRIS ("Instant Remote Interactive Support") system is being used for the first time. Using camera goggles, the stretcher teams send live images to an emergency doctor, who can give the first instructions for treatment directly. Speaking of technology, the virtual hospital clown "FrédARico" will provide entertainment for children in the first-aid station in 2022.
