The North West and North Wales Paediatric Transport Service (NWTS) provide 24/7 stabilisation and transfer of critically ill children and babies. They mobilise from the base in Warrington with ambulance, clinical specialists and equipment to any district hospital in the North West and North Wales. The child/baby is transferred receiving full intensive care to regional paediatric intensive care units at Alder Hey or Manchester.

The NWTS team conduct approximately 650 transfers per year and have 3 trolleys of equipment on standby at the base for this purpose. They currently need an Intellivue MP5 Monitor to standardise the equipment across the 3 trolleys ensuring the best possible care for every child/baby. This monitor displays vital information on a screen in the ambulance allowing all the clinical specialists to assess the patient constantly.

MedEquip4Kids have agreed to provide NWTS with the monitor which will benefit babies and children across the North West region of the UK.

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
