Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Air transport of infants in incubators should be undertaken in a manner that is safe for both staff and infant and satisfies all directives by appropriate regulatory bodies. In Scotland during the last two years, certification of an infant incubator system for use in both rotary and fixed wing aircraft has been accomplished. This is a report of the issues addressed during this project, which will be common to all neonatal transport services intending to develop air transport capability.
