The Unique Challenges of Transporting Newborns by Air
Air transport is commonly required for acute patient transport; including of sick newborns. Regionalization of tertiary neonatal care often means longer transport distances for patients between local referring hospitals and places of definitive care. The physiology of the newborn and some unique features of disease processes in the newborn present some challenges in safe transport by air. Fixed wing and rotary wing transport modes expose the sick newborn to different stressors according to their own unique variable cabin environments and altitude. An understanding of how newborns react to air transport and how to modify the air transport environment can both contribute to safer, more effective transport of the newborn.
