Digital Camera registration of patient
The photograph shows how such camera is mounted on the roof of an ambulance.
Such means provide "on-site, real time" connectivity with the electronic dossier, in the harshest environments.
The use of projecting later on the medical registration at the patient's bedside by the use of a connectivity to a Tablet PC, is gaining ground in hospitals.
Computer analysis, scan data retrieval verification and consultation speeds up decision direction, even though the patient is being sped to the hospital.
High resolution photographs and facial scans may be analyzed, compared with other cases to verify expedient course of action under critical life-saving conditions.
Also it is an effective method to provide retrospective information for relief to near relatives or basis for authorities.
The two lowest slides reflect the situation in the hospital environment : a digital camera mounted in one corner, or the second slide a digital video camera; both being instrumental to being able to record a medical condition of the patient (valuable integration to the electronic dossier), but also relieve the duty from an overworked nurse particularly at peak hours with reduced resources.
