Distribution of the population and the need of centralized care of critically ill children make pediatric transport an important issue. This highly complex act is often performed by not adequately trained staff. This paper focuses on the different phases of pediatric transport: admission to Emergency Department, stabilization, transport preparation, transport period, arrival at admitting centre. Each centre should develop its own protocol and activate a surveillance system.
