Telemedicine is an effective vehicle for providing immediate critical and specialist care to patients in remote and austere environments where the specialist experience is not readily available. This is essential for negating the need for unnecessary evacuation of patients that can result in extensive costs and the collapse of mission critical operations.
With modern technology advanced telemedicine solutions have become a reality. These innovative solutions can include video and voice calling via GSM/GPRS/3G networks. This means the transmission of both critical expert advice and the sending of patient vital signs ECG, SpO2, Pulse Rate, Blood Pressure, Temp are available instantly.
Definitive pre-hospital care is vital for the survival of the critically ill patient in an emergency situation. A telemedicine consultancy service can greatly improve pre-hospital care if the patient’s condition can be readily transmitted to the medical specialist for diagnosis, even though specialists might be located at substantial distances from the actual emergency scene. A mobile multimedia transmission system capable of sending video, image and medical telemetry coupled with electronic patient record acquisition and transmission will facilitate an efficient telemedical consultancy service for the emergency care professionals and can also enable critical patient information to be relayed for a referral pathway as appropriate.Contact Jigsaw
