This intensive one-week course is designed to prepare experienced paramedics, nurses, and respiratory therapists to function as members of a pediatric and neonatal critical care support team. This course is based on the nationally-accepted University of Maryland-Baltimore County course in pediatric/neonatal care. Participants will gain an understanding of the special needs of critical patients during transport, become familiar with the purpose and mechanisms of hospital procedures and equipment, and develop the skills to maintain the stability of hospital equipment and procedures during transport. In addition, this course may serve as a springboard for those institutions looking to expand into pediatric critical care.
