Critical care for patients in transit

When a higher level of care is necessary, Novant Health can dispatch the critical care transport (CCT) team to safely and efficiently facilitate patient transfers. The CCT service provides a seamless level of hospital quality care from the point of pick-up to the destination facility in a state-of-the-art ambulance.

The team includes registered nurses, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians who are ready 24/7 to transport the critically ill adult, pediatric, or neonatal patient.

The ambulance is equipped with the same resources you would find in a hospital critical care unit, including:

  • A wide range of emergency and advanced life support medications
  • Blood pressure, heart rate and oxygenation monitoring devices
  • Capabilities of offering 12-lead ECG transmission, which allows providers in the emergency room to determine whether a patient with chest pains should be taken directly to the cardiac catheterization lab for treatment upon arrival at the hospital
  • The ability to perform advanced airway procedures , including the use and management of ventilators, to help those patients who are having difficulty breathing
  • Ability to offer cardiac defibrillation and cardiac pacing if needed
  • Immediate communication with board-certified physicians enroute as needed
