Taking care of hundreds of people over a lengthy journey requires on-board physicians and medical facilities. But what happens when the emergency requires a second opinion?
Cruise liners offer a luxurious home-from-home, but as part of the service, passengers require all the facilities that are available at home, including first rate medical facilities. Cruise ships have medical staff on call to care for guests 24/7 but when a passenger's symptoms require a specialist opinion what happens? VitalLink3 can help inform that opinion by sending a 12 lead ECG and other measurements over the ship's satellite communications system back to the company's headquarters or Medical Service Provider. The data is logged and archived for future needs and cardiac and other specialists can view the data from their own location.
