Baby Pod II used for transporting pediatric patients

To accommodate the size and special needs of an infant during transport, Angel MedFlight uses a Baby Pod.  (See photo).  A Baby Pod is a transport incubator specially designed to safely and comfortably transfer infants from one facility to another.  Angel MedFlight proudly uses the latest version of the Baby Pod, the Baby Pod II. 

The Baby Pod II comes with shock absorbent foam which eliminates vibrations during transport and a vacuum mattress that conforms to the infant’s shape, limiting unwanted movement.  Angel MedFlight adds a special feature to its infant transport by utilizing the TransWarmer® Infant Transport Mattress.  This mattress is gel-filled and thermostable providing up to 2 hours of warming when cold stress is a concern.    

“Angel MedFlight prides itself on infant transports,” says Jonas Landstrom, Director of Clinical Education and Chief Flight Nurse. “The Baby Pod II allows us to transport small pediatric patients with specialty teams when required.”
