World-leader in neonatal and paediatric transport

The field of Neonatology is incredibly demanding and challenging, it requires specialized care for newborn and premature babies, bringing together the worlds of intensive care and pediatrics. At our air ambulance services, we understand the gravity of these situations and have a team of dedicated professionals ready to provide the utmost care.

  • Our Neonatal missions always include a highly-trained neonatologist and a specialized intensive care children’s flight nurse/paramedic trained in Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS). Together, they ensure the safe handling of the incubator and the highest level of care for these precious little ones.
  • An absolute necessity for transporting critically ill infants and young patients requires the incubator paired with an intensive care ventilator. These units come with monitoring equipment and accessories specifically designed for little ones, ensuring the highest level of care possible. Plus, to make sure everything runs smoothly, backup units for all essential equipment are on hand during transport.

Dedicated air ambulance aircraft
the best choice for newborns premature babies & children

European Air Ambulance provides top-of-the-line technology for the safe transfer of vulnerable newborn patients to specialist medical units across Europe. As part of our cooperation with the Centre Hospitalier in Luxembourg, European Air Ambulance uses this equipment when regularly undertaking the transfer of unstable newborn patients to specialist units elsewhere in Europe – for instance the paediatric cardiology department in Brussels or the premature baby department at the Necker Hospital in Paris.

When it comes to transporting newborns and premature babies, quality outweighs speed. It takes a seasoned organization with a wealth of experience in global medical flights and a team of dedicated specialists equipped with top-of-the-line gear to ensure that even the tiniest of patients receive the best care possible. The task of transporting newborns using an incubator is often challenging for air ambulance and rescue helicopter teams due to the intricate logistics involved, and the critical medical skills required to maintain the health and well-being of the patient. It's essential to have unwavering professionalism and flawless coordination within the team.

At European Air Ambulance, we pride ourselves on our exceptional team of proficient doctors and nurses who, together with state-of-the-art equipment, have established us as a global frontrunner in the realm of neonatal and pediatric air ambulance transportation.

Our commitment to excellence ensures that each mission receives the utmost care, including an on-board physician possessing extensive expertise in neonatal and pediatric medicine, as well as a skilled flight nurse certified by the European Resuscitation Council in Neonatal Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

Our exceptional medical team undergoes comprehensive neonatal and pediatric training to stay at the forefront of their field and remain adept with cutting-edge medical technology. Each mission is outfitted with specialized equipment tailored to the patient's age and condition.

Our air ambulance aircrafts ensure optimal care for newborns, especially premature infants

Transporting and repatriating newborns, especially premature infants, presents unique challenges as these delicate patients require uninterrupted care. They need meticulous temperature regulation, continuous cardiorespiratory and haemodynamic monitoring, and timely intervention. Moreover, their well-being depends on maintaining stability despite environmental factors such as noise, air pressure, temperature, and vibrations.

European Air Ambulance has taken a significant step towards providing unparalleled care for newborns by investing in two sophisticated transport incubators, complete with cutting-edge neonatal heated/humidified ventilators and advanced monitoring systems.

These incubators offer mechanical ventilation, CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), and HFNC (High Flow Nasal Canulae Oxygen), providing a hospital NICU-equivalent level of care. Key components of this groundbreaking equipment include the Mediprema Nite Transport® incubator, the Ventilator Stephan F120®, Hamilton T1®, Fisher and Paykel® humidifier, and the state-of-the-art Corpuls monitoring® system for invasive/non-invasive blood pressure control.

Discover European Air Ambulance's innovative Babypod®, a sleek, lightweight carbon composite transport device, perfect for safely accommodating infants between 1500g and 6000g. Easily attaching to any stretcher, Babypod® revolutionizes airborne infant care for stable little patients.
