What are some common emergencies during telemedicine?

Common Emergencies During Telemedicine
  • Video Visit: A patient is on a standard video conference with her doctor and says she wants to commit suicide and explains how she wants to do it.  She is cutting herself on the video.
  • Video Visit: A patient has an expedited appointment and is COVID+, tachypneic, tachycardic, and “looks sick” on video.
  • Remote Patient Monitoring Video Visit: A compliant patient was not feeling well and took her vitals and a finger stick.  Glucose was  “high” on Glucometer (over 600).
  • Voicemail: A patient with a known history of depression leaves a voicemail with her healthcare practice.  She said on voicemail, “I want to kill my neighbor and drive off a cliff.”
  • MCT (Mobile Cardiac Telemetry): The monitoring device alerted for SVT but the patient was normotensive.

Handle Different Scenerios

911 jurisdiction routing by latitude & longitude

When your patient is on the road, our geolocation tool, Air®GeoLocate, will pull the real time latitude and longitude of the patient’s location, route your communication to the correct 911 jurisdiction servicing your patient’s zone, and document the latitude and longitude for the 911 dispatcher handling your case. There are no apps to download. We keep it simple, calm, and reliable for your staff, 911 dispatchers, and your patients.

Maintaining Level of Care

Quality handoff has proven to help

The Joint Commission recommends all hand-off procedures to have both written and verbal components. These types of handoff requirements have been shown to reduce medical error and adverse events.
