Company demonstrates telemedicine for army

 

Last week, Sierra Nevada Corporation (Sparks, Nev., U.S.A.) (SNC), a telemedicine system provider, demonstrated a Transport Telemedicine (T2) capability developed under the U.S. Army, which focuses on the capture and communication of patient care/condition information beginning at the Point of Injury (POI) until the arrival at the nearby medical facility.

In collaboration with the 1/168th Medevac Nevada Guard Unit, the system demonstrated the autonomous capture of patient vitals from standard medical instruments, as well as a voice data entry system (VDES) which allows flight medics to use speech for entering relevant patient information in the high noise environment of a helicopter.

Other technology demonstrated included an electronic critical care flow sheet titled, “Medical and Emergency Data Input and Communications System” (MEDICS) which captures and structures the patient information to facilitate communications.

A custom Access Point (AP), which is the intelligent hub of the T2 system providing communications between medical devices, military radios and user devices, was also used. A critical feature of the AP is providing secure medical communications in limited bandwidth situations while assuring non-interference with tactical communications, according to Sierra Nevada Corp.

The T2 demonstration platform used an Army UH-60L helicopter in flight with patient information transmitted over an Army standard radio. T2 provides a Critical Care Situational Awareness (CCSA) capability by linking care provider and patient to Medical Treatment Facilities, according to the company.
