RED FLAG: Rethinking the neonatal transport ground ambulance

Recommended Posts

Another open access article (pdf is freely downloadable) from Journal of Pediatric and Neonatal Individualized Medicine (JPNIM) depicting meticulously the Portuguese experience. May be also of interest to the ‘Neos’ concerned about the organizational part of newborn transport and safety hazards.


All these journeys are no doubt historical in the context of industrialized world but still 'early neonatal' and ‘premature’, globally.

I am also including the systemic review of Pan American initiative (iris PAHO), focusing the challenges faced every now and then on the other side where the grass is yet to be greener.

This article describes the detailed project aimed to realize a dedicated ground ambulance for neonatal emergency transport service (NETS).


Having read this article has many good ideas in my experience. The design rethink many good idea . 👌 for the safety of the neonates. I'd like to highlight 2 features.

1) ambulance tv screen/camera  allows connexion the hospital site, such as when a tertiary center is necessary. Here a neonatologist can lead the team to provide optimum care of the neonate on transfer. It can use for example the zoom© software enabling remote telehealth service. Alternatively , the ambulance designed by the generalitat de catalunia  is powered 4G-5G comm .Its communication system is has a direct to the hospital site , where a clinical is there to provide supportany time.

2), I feel solar roof can provide some autonomy on transport. It also a sustainable option , make it a bit more green.
