Abstract

Specialized interfacility transport teams deliver critical care medicine to the patient and provide that level of care throughout the transport to the tertiary care center. Goals, benefits, and prerequisites for establishing a transport team are explored. Requirements include adequate financial and human resources, planning for and management of equipment and supplies, and a high level of commitment of all involved, from the hospital administrator and medical director to the transport coordinator and team members.
