Aerotel to present tele-monitoring devices at Med-e-Tel 2010 Conference

Aerotel Medical Systems will present its new innovative products at the Med-e-Tel 2010 Conference that will be held at 14-16 April 2010 in Luxembourg.

Ofer Atzmon, vice president for business development and marketing at Aerotel, will hold a presentation that will demonstrate the usage of Telemedicine to enhance emergency care by ambulance services. The presentation will be held during the tele-cardiology session, which will take place on April 16 between 13:00 and 14:45, in conference room 2.

The presentation will feature the usage of mobile hand-held ECG tele-monitoring devices by ambulance services and will include case studies from Brazil, Italy and Russia.

It will feature Aerotel's wireless hand-held electrocardiogram (ECG) recorder/transmitter devices for measuring 12-lead ECG signals, by private and institutional ambulance emergency services.

Ambulance staffs (paramedics) use the devices in order to monitor people injured in car accidents or in various emergency situations at home. They can record the ECG trace and transmit it within minutes to a remote medical centre using their mobile phones.

The Med-e-Tel 2010 features presentations of successful business cases, research activities, pilot projects, practical experiences from health and social care providers, and panel discussions, offering both local and international perspectives on eHealth and telemedicine opportunities and experiences.
