Get Started Today

Once your patient and family are in agreement with the healthcare team regarding travel and a receiving facility is identified, call Paradigm Care to expedite the transport process. We will provide a quote and assist you in prepping your patient for travel. We can depart in as little as 48­-72 hours from the time of first contact.

For now, prepare your patient by doing the following:

• Oxygen: Consult your respiratory therapy team to begin weaning your patient’s oxygen level to safe air transport levels. Patients with SAO2<95% will require supplemental in­flight oxygen depending on the patient’s baseline and physician recommendations.
• Mobility: Begin acclimatizing your patient to transfers and reclined seating. Your physical therapy team can assist with this and determining that your patient does not suffer compromise when in the seated position. Your patient need not be able to support him or herself as that is part of our transport care.
• IV: Paradigm Care manages IVs, but begin weaning IVs if you can. We do not transport patients who require drips for cardiac stability. Consider changing TPN to D5 or D5/NS.
• Secretions: Paradigm Care manages tracheotomy patients.
• NG/GT/J Tubes: Discontinue tube feedings 8­-10 hours before flight and conduct bowel prep.
• Pain Management: Determine the appropriate pain management regimen for your patient now. Do not wait until the day of departure as we will not try new medications during transport. Paradigm Care administers IV, PO, SQ or IM injections and IV bolus.
