Elpaso Emergency Squad's Trucks

Home

The El Paso Emergency Squad is proud to offer critical care transport (CCT) services for the patient that requires care beyond the scope of an Illinois Licensed Paramedic. These services include, but are not limited to, patients who have experienced multi-system trauma, require continuous hemodynamic monitoring, require invasive diagnostic/intervention for a cardio-thoracic injury or disease, high-risk obstetrical services, advanced airway procedures, and specialized pediatric care. A comprehensive list of critical care criteria is available upon request.

The general rule of thumb is : Any patient who is being cared for in a critical care setting (ICU, CCU, ED) who is being transported to another facility for a higher level of care requires critical care transport.
