Transfer Of The Intensive Care Patient
Within the scope of the emergency health service that has developed in our country in recent years, thanks to the large number of equipped ambulances, ambulance airplanes, ambulance helicopters and sea ambulances have made it possible for patients requiring intensive care to be transferred between hospitals and even cities.
When the patient is being transported in this way, all medical interventions and the treatment that should be done in the intensive care unit must not be interrupted. All of these tools used in the most advanced intensive care units must be available in the ambulance. Of course, an experienced emergency medical technician, or even better; an emergency specialist physician should also be in the vehicle. Thus, the sleeping patient’s eyes can be opened in a better, more equipped intensive care center.
