GNAA chooses Ortus

The Ortus Group has supplied 3 x corpuls3 defibs and 3 x MEDUMAT Standard2, to the Great North Air Ambulance.

The GNAA operate three ambulance helicopters (AS365’s), covering the North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year.


The powerful corpuls3 defib/monitor/pacer unit, is a revolutionary device specifically designed for the pre hospital sector and amongst its many benefits and advantages are its lightweight and modular construction which gives maximum flexibility to the professional medics when on a rescue mission. The corpuls3 has grown from strength to strength having gained contracts from the Welsh Ambulance Service, the East of England Ambulance Trust (EEAST) and the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS).

Also the corpuls3 defib is now fitted into the Yorkshire Air Ambulance H145’s, Air Ambulance Northern Ireland’s EC135’s and now into the GNAA AS365’s.
