Neonatal Transport with Incubators and BabyPods, an EAA Specialty

Neonatal and incubator transport

For several years, neonatology transport has been one of the specialities of European Air Ambulance. With state-of-the-art equipment (incubator and intensive care ventilator) at their disposal, EAA’s neonatal missions always include a neonatologist as well as a specialised intensive care paediatric flight nurse who has been trained in Advanced Paediatric Life Support and New Born Life Support.

Two incubators and one BabyPod, permanent equipment at EAA, are used on the EAA missions:

  • 2 MediPrema N.I.T.E.® equipped with a Mobile Stephan R120® ventilator and a Hamilton T1® neonate ventilator.
  • 1 BabyPod II containing a patient-positioning vacuum mattress, stretcher fixing straps to secure the device for transport and safety straps to secure the infant inside the device during transport.

These units complement other monitoring equipment and accessories specially adapted for young patients.
