MEDICAL EMERGENCY AID THROUGH TELEMATICS

Objective

MERMAID is a telematics-based response to the EU requirement for "long distance medical consultation" to protect the health and safety of maritime workers and isolated populations. It will set up an integrated 24-hour multilingual world-wide emergency service to transfer medical expertise via satellite and ground-based ISDN networks. Requests for help at sea will be broadcasted over ship-to-shore links feeding into an ISDN network of health service providers, and routed to suitable specialists. Health teleconsultants will also be able to interact from afar with local multimedia medical guides to demonstrate suitable procedures to on-the-spot paramedics.
