Premature infants who need to be transported to a specialized intensive care unit should be transported in a specialized vehicle, with the participation of a transport resuscitation team. During the transportation of the newborn, clear and complete monitoring of body temperature, respiration rate, heart rate, blood pressure and saturation, as well as the level of glycemia, should be carried out. All potential changes in the condition of premature infants should be monitored and, if possible, corrected. To assess the severity of the condition of premature babies before, during and after transportation, it is advisable to use the TRİP scale. Evaluation scales of the risk of transportation of newborns allow to improve the quality of transportation of newborns without significant risk for their life and health.  

Key Words: premature, neonatal transport, neonatal mortality.
