  • Stabilization begins as soon as the team arrives. Treatment modalities available on transport include:

    • ECMO

    • Inhaled nitric oxide

    • Monitoring

    • Non-invasive and invasive ventilation

  • We make every effort, depending on patient acuity and transport vehicle used, to allow parents to accompany their child during transport.
