In Conjunction with University of Maryland Baltimore County and University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine, REMSA offers The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program. The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program is designed to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team in an effort to bridge the gap between pre-hospital and hospital settings. The result is a specialized care provider that has an understanding of both aspects of patient care, and uses the understanding to provide the highest level of care to critical patients during transport. Participants will gain an understanding of the special needs of critical patients during transport, become familiar with the critical care procedures, equipment, and develop the skills necessary to maintain the stability of the critical care patient.

Program Goals

The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program is designed to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. Critical patients that must be transported between facilities require a different level of care from hospital or emergency field patients. 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.
