Queensland Paediatric Transport Triage Tool

Does my paediatric patient need a critical inter-hospital transfer?

Discuss with your local paediatric service. Use the Queensland Paediatric Transport Triage Tool developed by the Children’s Advice and Transport Co-ordination Hub (CATCH) and Retrieval Services Queensland (RSQ) to help you identify children who are critically unwell or have the potential to deteriorate during an inter-hospital transfer. The tool uses a combination of individual physiological parameters, the total Children’s Early Warning Tool (CEWT) score and specific condition triggers to identify children who require a critical transfer.
