Critically ill paediatric transfers have expanded rapidly over the past ten years and, as such, the need for transfer teams to recognise, understand and treat the various illnesses that they encounter is greater than ever. This highly illustrated book covers a multitude of clinical presentations in a case-based format to allow an authentic feel to the transfer process. Written by clinicians with experience in thousands of transfers, it brings together many years of experience from a world-renowned hospital. Following the case from initial presentation, to resuscitation and referral and finally with the transfer itself; the book explores the clinical stabilisation, human factors decisions and logistical challenges that are encountered every day by these teams. Following the entire journey, this is an ideal resource for all professionals who may be involved in critical care transfer and retrieval medicine, particularly those working in paediatrics, emergency medicine, anaesthesiology, intensive care, or pre-hospital settings.

  • The structured, case-based format is easily adapted into a teaching resource for simulation-based material and, by covering the journey from presentation to transfer, the book provides a tool for local teams seeking more experience in stabilisation/resuscitation of a sick child through to the specific issues encountered during transfer
  • The book distils the knowledge and vast experience from a large number of clinicians with experience in thousands of critically ill transfers in a range of settings and features a huge variety of illnesses encountered during the transferral of critically ill children and the challenges related to these
  • Written from a multidisciplinary viewpoint of a transfer team consisting of different professionals including doctors, nurses and ambulance technicians, offering an insight into the team based nature of a transfer
