Critically ill or injured patients often require specialized care. Regionalization of specialty services necessitates transport of patients from the scene of an accident to a trauma center or from one hospital to another (inter-facility) to receive specialized services, for example, trauma, cardiology or neurology. Debate exists regarding the selection of the transport team. No clear guidelines exist for critical care transport team selection (Swickard, Swickard, Reimer, Lindell, & Winkelman, 2014).
