MedStar proudly introduces the new Critical Care Transport service

 

MedStar now provides Critical Care Transport service for inter-facility transports originating within the MedStar service area, as well as long distance transports.

 

MedStar's Critical Care Transport ambulance is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, allowing us to transport the critical patient in a mobile hospital setting.

 

The specially outfitted ambulance, staffed by an Advanced Practice Paramedic, is capable of transporting patients while maintaining the highest levels of care.

 

Advanced care now covers:

  • cardiac patients receiving vasoactive, anticoagulant, or fibrinolytic infusions,

 

  • mechanically ventilated patients,

 

  • patients needing invasive monitoring,

 

  • patients undergoing IABP therapy, or

 

  • any patient needing continuous ICU level care en route.
