Abstract

Highly specialized pediatric critical care centers have matured significantly over the past two decades; however, access to this care is limited to tertiary care facilities and constrained by geography. With the advances of transport medicine, great distances can be spanned to bring critical care to the patient and provide effective treatment and safe transport systems where specialized care was previously unavailable. A patchwork of diverse transport systems perform pediatric transports with significant differences in the level of pediatric critical care. The optimal transport system has yet to be fully defined, but many successful systems share fundamental elements of organization.
