Abstract

An increasing number of missions in emergency medical services and a progressive utilization rate of emergency physicians also require the use of the benefits of telemedicine in prehospital emergency medicine. Through modern technology, such as the transmission of vital data in real time and a secure audio-visual contact, paramedics can be quickly connected to an experienced emergency physician from a distance and supported in diagnostics and therapy of a patient. This tele-emergency services physician is established in the Aachen emergency service since 2014 and has already had numerous successful missions.
