Pediatric Emergency Medical Team
On hand to provide 24-hour care
From the site of the accident to the hospital, including the patient’s safe return back home
Certified to provide infant and pediatric critical and emergency care measures, as formulated by the U.S. regulations
Samitivej Children’s Hospital is ready to offer care to infants and children involved in accidents or those in a critical condition 24 hours a day. Our team consists of doctors specializing in pediatric emergency medicine, specialist pediatricians and medical staff, all with specific training in the field according to the Pediatric Emergency Medicine curriculum framework. This framework has been specially designed with infant and pediatric critical care in mind through a partnership with Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Oregon Health and Science University, one of the leading pediatric hospitals in USA.
The trained staff are qualified and able to assess a patient’s condition and begin providing treatment while still at the site of the accident using specialized life-saving equipment. The patient can then be transferred to the Newborn and Pediatric Surgery Center in cases where an operation is required. These young patients can either recover in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
Moreover, all members of our team have been trained to deal with prematurely born infants in critical condition, as well as those who are experiencing health complications that place them at high risk after childbirth and therefore require urgent care and attention.
Samitivej Children’s Hospital is one of the private hospitals under the Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS) network that has received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS), which is the internationally recognized standard for the safety of ground and air transportation of critically endangered patients.
Our hospital has received this esteemed recognition from both the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) from the U.S. and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems Europe (CAMTS EU). Furthermore, Samitivej Children’s Hospital is one of emergency care command centers working with our 13-hospital network of emergency care, consisting of ambulances, motolances, air ambulances and a Sky ICU helicopter, which are all staffed by an expert doctor and nursing team with high levels of training in the air-based transport of critical patients.
