Abstract

As pediatric interhospital critical care transport has evolved toward a distinct discipline, practitioners in this field have recognized the need for guidelines for transport program development and patient care. At a gathering of medical directors of pediatric transport programs, the following topics were discussed: team composition and transport staffing, training requirements for pediatric and nonpediatric transport teams, goals and design of a transport data base, and medical-legal issues, including the responsibilities of the referring and receiving institutions. Consensus recommendations were made for the major issues in each of these areas. Several questions were raised which may be answered by multiinstitutional studies.
