Specialty Care Transport

SCT is provided in an ambulance that has been specifically designed, equipped and staffed for the transport of the high-acuity patient. No regional provider of ambulance transport in the Bi-State area offers comparable resources or medical oversight.

    • Each SCT ambulance is equipped with a Newport HT50 Ventilator, a Zoll 12-lead EKG, a Vasotrec Hemodynamic Monitor and a Medsystem III Infusion Pump and carries paralytic/sedative medications, vasopressors and pain management medications.
    • SCT ambulances are staffed with Critical Care Paramedics (CCEMT-P) who have completed the Critical Care Transport program certified through the University of Maryland CCEMT-P program. These professionals have completed a curriculum that includes advanced airway management, surgical airways, rapid sequence intubations, advanced ventilation management and a variety of other training that is well beyond the normal course of study for Paramedics.
  • Specialty Care Transport frequently provides an appropriate means of transferring an acutely ill patient from a rural health care facility to an urban Trauma Center. Yet the SCT ambulance requires no additional staffing by the referring facility.
