Hayden's ECMO transport
A NETS team was joined by a cardiothoracic team from CHW to transport Hayden from Canberra to Westmead on ECMO (extra corporeal membrane oxygenation).
Although NETS has moved older infants and children on this treatment, this was the first newborn to be placed on ECMO. This was done by a cardiothoracic team which flew with the NETS team to Canberra to place Hayden on heart bypass. Once stabilised, he was carefully moved in one of NETS specialist ambulances by road to Sydney. This assured the safest journey.
