Preparation of the critically ill neonate for transport

J S C Med Assoc. 2002 Jun;98(3):129-36.


Transport of a critically ill neonate is stressful for all involved. Adequate communication and stabilization will reduce stresses and improve outcomes. Periodic review of the stabilization and care provided to neonates prior to transport can help in further improving the process. Such reviews can be done in conjunction with the Regional Perinatal Center.
