The Critical Care Transport Program

The Critical Care Transport Program

The Critical Care Transport Program features specially trained Good Samaritan Hospital Critical Care Team who accompanies each transport. Mobile Intensive Care Units are capable of transporting critically ill patients including those with Intraaortic Balloon Pump (IABP), Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD), or Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), arrhythmias, vasopressor support and those requiring ventilator support.

The Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Transport Program is staffed by a team of cardiologists, nurses, and technicians who are available around to clock to respond to the needs of patients and referring institutions. Patients transported to Good Samaritan Hospital include those from hospitals in Bakersfield, Riverside, San Luis Obispo, Las Vegas, San Diego, Palm Springs and other locations.

Thrombolytic therapy and urgent air or ground transportation to Good Samaritan Hospital for angiography, angioplasty, or if necessary, cardiac surgery are mainstays of the program.

The Neurocritical Care Program provides care for patients with critical neurologic conditions. Specialists practicing at the program are trained in neurocritical care and provide advanced diagnostics, neuroimaging, multimodality monitoring and comprehensive treatment plans.

Neurocritical Care is a unique discipline that provides critical care for patients with a wide range of neurological disorders, including stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, brain trauma, coma, intracerebral hemorrhage, seizures, spinal cord trauma, status epilepticus, encephalitis, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barre’ syndrome, and neuromuscular disease.
