Education & Research

The safe transport of a critically ill patient requires a structured approach to: assessment, diagnosis, stabilisation and management of clinical conditions as well as knowledge of logistics and transport specific equipment in the ambulance environment. MICAS, the Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance Service, runs three training programmes: 1. MICAS training 2.Transporting the critically ill adult 3. Transporting the critically ill adult and child (in collaboration with IPATS, the Irish Acute Paediatric Transport Service). These training programmes provide a structured approach to transporting critically ill patients, encompassing knowledge of processes, preparation, transport physiology, transport-related variances and transport specific equipment.
