Critical Care Transport

MetroAtlanta Ambulance’s Critical Care Transport program provides the highest level of patient care for the most critically ill or injured patients requiring transfer from hospital to hospital.

The Critical Care Ambulance Units are large and designed to accommodate the extra equipment required when transferring patients in critical condition. They are equipped with electric/hydraulic lifts, generators, LTV 1200 ventilators, a Data Scope CS 300 Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump and other specialized equipment required for intensive care monitoring. Patients are cared for by  CCT Paramedics that have completed the Metro Atlanta EMS Academy’s Critical Intensive Care Paramedic (CICP) program developed by the Cleveland Clinic.  A Physician, RN or Respiratory Therapist will also accompany the most critical patients when required. Over 14 hospitals contract with MetroAtlanta Ambulance to transfer their Critical Care Patients because they are confident in the care provided by Metro Atlanta’s highly-trained CCT Medics and know they are utilizing the industry’s most state-of-the art equipment.
