Therefore (1547-118)/1547 could have been performed by WMNTS = 92% (both networks)
Replaced by a 4-level categorisation
Notes: Transitional care / normal care not included as basic monitoring used for all babies in transfer
Categorise on the intended treatment the infant will receive on completion of transfer.
Uplift: Transfer for care that the referring centre does not normally offer
Use intention to treat throughout. Within what timescale did you set-out to arrange this transfer?
Ventilated infant with Tracheo-oesophageal fistula +/- atresia
Suspected duct-dependent cardiac lesion not responding to prostin
Unstable respiratory or cardiovascular failure not responding to appropriate management:
Despite giving appropriate ventilation via endotracheal tube the infant’s respiratory status remains unstable or severely compromised:
persistent unstable pneumothorax despite chest drain requiring FiO2 100%
arterial oxygen < 5kPa on 2 consecutive blood gas measurements
pH <7.1 and pCO2 >9kPa
persistent mean blood pressure below corrected gestational age, measured on arterial line; if measured with cuff only, there should also be acidosis (pH <7.1)Clinical criteria for categorising as Time Critical
No CHD not responding to prostaglandin infusion (4) ; No (5) recorded
1 transfer performed for CenTre; 1 transfer performed by KIDS as WMNTS oncall
