Neonatal-Pediatric Transport Service

Brenner Critical Care Transport web

The transport team directed by Dr. Laura Corbin Downey includes experienced registered nurses and respiratory therapists who specialize in the care of critically ill children. The team's scope of expertise includes intubations, placement of intravascular catheters and chest tube placement. This skilled care is provided by the team in the referring community hospital and during transfer.

One team is available for transport, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The team is located in Winston-Salem at the Brenner Children's Hospital  The Brenner Children's Hospital transport team is one of only three critical care transport teams in the state that can transport a baby on inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) and jet ventilation. If an infant has been placed on iNO and is not responding well, the baby can be transferred to Brenner Children's Hospital, the region's only extracorporeal membrane oxygentation referral center.  

The transport team is now able to offer departure to referral facilities in the event of imminent delivery of a premature infant who will be transferred to Brenner Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
