Conference Description

During the period of transport, critically ill neonates and children are at risk from disease, injury, therapy, and the transport itself. This risk can be minimized by good communication between the referring and receiving caretakers, careful evaluation and management, anticipation of complications, and a well-equipped and well-trained team. This two-day course provides a comprehensive approach to clinical issues related to neonatal and pediatric transport.

Conference Objectives

  • Provide clinical care consistent with current guidelines of practice for specialty team transports
  • Demonstrate assessment and stabilization skills for the care and management of critically ill patients
  • Define management options for specific clinical disease states
  • Discuss limitations and effects of the transport environment on the patient
