Life saving telemedicine
With a camera mounted in the ceiling that is wirelessly connected to a headpiece, NETS specialists can see the patient remotely via a computer screen and can assist with visual diagnosis and life saving treatment. If necessary, a NETS team will retrieve the child and provide intensive care while making the transfer to a specialist children's hospital.
More than 50 Vision for Life cameras have been installed in children's wards around NSW. Doctors on-site can call specialists at NETS if they are concerned about a child’s condition. Access to this equipment helps savechildren's lives, reduces misdiagnosis and the unnecessary use of expensive aeromedical transport.
