To most people, current 4G internet speeds are more than sufficient for everything they do online, keeping up with family and friends, casual browsing, and even streaming High Definition movies while commuting to work. Meanwhile, an estimated $21.53Bn is being invested in the next generation of mobile network infrastructure, 5G!
5G promises higher speeds, extreme bandwidth, low latency and higher connection density. Facilitating a new wave of technology and use-cases. One of the many ways 5G will improve our life is remote medical care, and more specifically remote emergency treatment.
On February 22nd, 2019, the Zhejiang 2nd Hospital in collaboration with China Mobile Zhejiang Co., Ltd. and FXG successfully demoed the remotely operated ambulance car. The 5G connected car features remote vital sign monitoring and transmission, remotely controlled Ultrasonography arm, and a live VR stream to a medical team in the hospital guiding paramedics on their way to the hospital.
Zhang Mao, Director of the Emergency Medicine Department of the Zhejiang Medical University detailed the five steps of remote emergency medical care.
1) Information gathering and monitoring: The ambulance car is equipped with high-tech vital sign gathering equipment to keep track of patients’ health status and give paramedics a better idea on what they’re dealing with;
2) Information transmission and analysis: A live feed of patient’s vital signs is transmitted to a medical team at the hospital, along with their blood type and medicines required to stabilize and treat them;
3) Use VR technology to get more involved: Doctors in the hospital can put-on VR headsets to view a live stream of everything happening in the ambulance car, and get a full view of every direction. Doctors can also remotely operate an Ultrasonography arm using a controller from their office;
4) Be better prepared: Thanks to all the information gathered, the local hospital team can prepare everything in advance, including appropriate equipment, a matching blood transfer bag and medicine, helping them save precious time.
5) Post discharge follow-up: Patients can remotely report their health status to doctors without needing to physically be in the hospital thanks to VR and 5G Technology.
