About this Event

Please join us for the next OC3PR where we will discuss what you need to know for safer critical care transport of your patient for both air and land.

  • Dr. Randy Wax, Critical Care Subregional Lead, Central East, Ontario Health East; Transport Medicine Physician, Ornge; Attending Intensivist, Department of Critical Care Medicine, Lakeridge Health; Associate Professor, Department of Critical Care Medicine, Queen’s University


1. State advantages, disadvantages of different modes of transport (land, rotor, fixed wing)

2. Distinguish between scopes of practice for different levels of paramedics (flight versus land; primary, advanced, critical care)

3. Describe special considerations for COVID-19 patients during transport

4. Effectively prepare your patient for transport and hand over to the transport team

5. Plan to equip and staff a hospital-based transport team working with local paramedic services

We invite all multidisciplinary ICU teams to participate and ask that you please share this invite with your colleagues who are involved with critical care. To further share key learning points highlighted during each webinar, we encourage teams to schedule time to debrief and discuss how the information will inform or be incorporated into practices in your hospital. The webinars will also be recorded and made available on the CCSO website along with supporting documentation.

If you have any questions that you would like to submit ahead of the webinar please send these to [email protected] with the subject line “Clinical Webinar Series”.

We look forward to you joining us.
