Isolated and specialty care wards often have limited access and providing timely patient care is sometimes challenging due to staff availability or shortage. TeleVU enables the frontline clinician to consult and communicate with remote peers to receive real-time medical assistance and guidance.
This results in high quality and timely care delivery without overcrowding the patient’s bedside to promote social distancing and reduce the usage of PPEs.
Example: Implantable defibrillator (ICD) patient gets admitted to CCU due to recurrent VT that was untreated by the device. Upon admission, the patient is administered with Amiadrone and stabilized. At this point, the patient’s ICD has to be interrogated and checked, however, due to a complication the device nurse and cardiologist need advice from the company experts. The technical representative is not able to get to the hospital for another several hour and possibly even the next day. Using TeleVU, the nurse or cardiologist will be able to immediately get a hold of a technical representative and troubleshoot the issue. The technical rep provided guidance by pointing, drawing and sharing documents using TeleVU’s AR features and reprogrammed the ICD to properly deal with the VT. The patient was discharged the same day and a highly in-demand CCU bed was released to admit and treat the next patient in need.
