Critical Care Transport thoroughly prepares medical professionals to function as competent members of a critical care team by covering the knowledge and skills required to operate effectively in the pre-hospital critical care environment.

The course manual meets the curricula of major critical care training programs, including University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). It covers both ground and flight transport, and meets the objectives of critical care transport certification exams such as the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) exam administered by the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification.

Content includes information specific to pre-hospital critical care transport, such as flight physiology, lab analysis, hemodynamic monitoring, and specialized devices such as the intra-aortic balloon pump. Standard topics such as airway management, trauma, and pharmacology are covered in the context of critical care. Chapters have been authored by leading critical care professionals across the country and represent the most current, state-of-the-art information on management of critical care patients.
 

The course icovers the CAT 138 on the PC12 fixed wing and Augusta helicopter.
