Standards for Critical Care and Specialty Transport has been combined in a new single volume. Previous editions focused specifically on standards for rotor- wing, fixed-wing, and ground transport programs. This all-new 19-chapter volume combines the three and includes bonus content on commercial medical escort programs. The new Standards text also incorporates the latest CAMTS requirements for accreditation of transport programs as well as information from the newly released ASTNA position paper Transport of Patients with Serious Communicable Diseases.
Additional updates include the most recent recommended ground ambulance design practices developed through efforts of the work group comprised of AAMS Critical Care Ground (CCG) SIG, the General Services Administration (GSA), the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Ground Ambulance Vehicle Design Working Group, and the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) Ground Vehicle Standards Working Group. These initiatives were published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and are now included in full or in part in GSA KKK Purchase Specifications, CAAS Standards, and NFPA 1917 Standards.
