Interfacility transport of critically ill children

  • 1Department of Emergency Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.


Interfacility transport of critically ill children (transport) is a challenging component of pediatric critical care. The risk associated with the transport may be reduced by a specialized pediatric transport team, a screening tool for critically ill children, and a standardized handover between referring and referred physicians. Further research is necessary in Korea regarding the above measures for the safe and effective transport.
