Critically ill patients have been transferred in between hospitals since decades. Mainly for additional diagnostic or therapeutic possibilities not available at the referring hospital, but also in cases where intensive care unit (ICU) beds are unavailable. The Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) is an ambulance, especially designed for the transport of the critically ill ICU patient. These transports are accompanied by a specially trained ICU physician and ICU nurse.

In this thesis we studied different aspect of our MICU service and we aimed to answer the following questions:
Is it true that a prepared, trained and experienced transport team with the right equipment will result in a better transfer with less adverse events?
What kind of adverse events do happen during transport?
How should a specialized transfer team be trained?
What is the regional impact of a MICU service?
Are there specific transport related issues we should be aware of?
