Why Call Us?
“Interfacility transport performed by a pediatric critical care specialized transport team, compared with transport by a non-specialized team, was associated with improved survival rates and fewer unplanned events during transport, regardless of the severity of the illness.
In addition, “children transported by nonspecialized teams had >2 times greater odds of death than did those transported by a specialized team, controlling for illness severity and other transport covariates.” Pediatrics 2009; 124: pg. 45.
We here at Children’s believe that transport by a specialized pediatric team is the best method for optimal outcomes for all pediatric and neonatal outcomes. Along with our specialized skill set, experience, and training, we come prepared with pediatric-specific equipment necessary to stabilize even the most critical patients. We’re just a phone call away.
