When treating patients paramedics have a variety of issues to take care of that consume precious time. Having patient data readily available can help first responders begin treating the patient sooner and easy sharing of symptoms with the receiving hospital can smooth out the transfer. Using a mobile computer such as a tablet can slow down the response as the paramedic takes his eyes off the patient and works the device. Ikanos Consulting, a Nottinghamshire, UK firm, believes its Golden-i headset (essentially a Motorola HC1) powered by the new Paramedic Pro application can help speed up the initiation of care, share live audio and video, and get all the clinicians involved on the same page.
The headset has a camera and microphone for interacting with applications and to communicate with hospital physicians. The Paramedic Pro software performs voice recognition and allows patient data lookup and entry through voice alone. Remote physicians can see and hear through the headset, allowing them to guide paramedics in stabilizing their patients and starting treatment in difficult cases. Here’s a video demonstrating the Golden-i with Paramedic Pro software:
