When paramedics arrive at the site, they examine the patients and give them immediate emergency care. They have examination and treatment equipment, an oxygen mask and a monitor-defibrillator. If the patient's situation so requires, they either call for additional help, such as a physician unit or the emergency care field manager, or make a decision to transfer the patient to further treatment.

The alarm does not always lead to the patient being transported to the hospital by ambulance, but the patient can be left at home or at the site after the examination and the necessary treatment and counselling.
