Abstract
This article reviews the components that facilitate an effective neonatal emergency transport network, and discusses the human resources required for safe transport, including a section focused on the option of an expanded role for the paramedic. In addition, the topics of transport equipment, communications, quality assurance, data management, family support and education are addressed in the context of a neonatal transport programme. Finally, elements involved in the organization of neonatal transport and transport issues pertaining to networking of neonatal medical care are highlighted and illustrated with reference to local experience in British Columbia.
