On the topic at hand, I've been the scared mother riding with her infant in the back of an ambulance and I was not a happy camper with how she was secured. If I had any other option, I would have done that but seeing as she was seizing, I was limited in my options. A lot of the EMS crews in my area strap the car seat to the pram using the seat belts and tighten down so the car seat won't budge and then put kiddo in the seat. This works if the seat hasn't been in an accident and if it has and you have no other way to transport a kiddo, then I guess it would work too. The problem comes with transporting a critically sick kiddo who isn't stable enough to be in a car seat. The way my daughter was transported was not safe as the harness they slipped over the pram wasn't designed for an infant her size and had we been in an accident, it could have been catastrophic. Might have been one of those hanging stretcher ambucab setups that somehow still exist out there. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
