Neonatal Transport


The CHU Sainte-Justine’s neonatal transport team is a true mobile neonatal intensive care unit, complete with all of the required equipment.

In order to be able to provide the required care, the team possesses three fully equipped systems.

Each system contains:

  • An incubator with automatic heating controls;
  • An electric stretcher with hydraulic system;
  • A cardiorespiratory monitor;
  • An integrated respirator;
  • Air and oxygen cylinders;
  • Syringe pumps for administering IV fluids and medications;
  • A nitric oxide delivery system (a therapeutic gas that produces pulmonary vasodilatation);
  • Cooling system for therapeutic hypothermia treatment Tecotherm®
  • A respiratory therapist bag containing all of the required supplies for intubation, oxygen therapy, non-invasive ventilation, and bag-mask ventilation;
  • A nursing bag containing all of the required supplies for administering care to patients;
  • Two handheld blood analyzers (EPOC).

Though these devices may seem impressive, their main purpose is to make transporting patients much easier. These devices are replaced regularly in order to remain on the cutting-edge of technology and, above all, to deliver the most advanced care to newborns.
