Typically, less than 10 percent of the patients transported by traditional “adult” transport teams are under the age of 14.
Research has shown that outcomes are better when children are transported by dedicated neonatal and pediatric transport teams.
Highly specialized neonatal and pediatric programs, such as the Critical Care Transport Program at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, can be the difference between life and death.
What do these programs offer that others don’t?
Angie Cunningham, RN, CCRN, C-NPT is here to explain how the Transport Program at Children’s Mercy is one of the largest in the nation and was the first neonatal/pediatric specialty program in the nation accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Services (CAMTS) in all three forms of transport: ground, rotor wing and fixed wing.
