Advanced Technologies and Wireless Telecommunications Enhance Care and Medical Training at the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami

residents from their homes, offices or virtually anywhere. The robot's two-way audio-video capabilities will allow the doctors to check vitals, zoom in on the patient and provide advice to attending doctors, nurses or clinicians.

"The Ryder Trauma Center is the only Level I trauma center in Miami-Dade County for adults and children and it services an area of nearly three million people," said Jeffrey S. Augenstein, M.D, Ph.D., director of the William Lehman Injury Research Center and principal investigator on the project. "Enabling doctors to instantly connect to the ICU through high-speed wireless technology can help lower the preventable death rate by speeding up the delivery of trauma care during the 'golden hour,' the critical 60 minutes after an injury."

"When high-speed wireless technology and connectivity become an integral component of the health care system, critical information from patients will get to doctors more quickly - and vice versa," said Don Jones, vice president of business development for Qualcomm's health and life sciences group. "This compression of time will contribute to a revolution in the health care industry and we are proud to support this program through our Wireless Reach initiative."

Another benefit realized during the past year of using the RP-7 is the reduction of bacterial infections spread while physicians conduct their rounds, which is a problem in hospitals where doctors visit approximately 10- 15 patients per hour. During this new stage of the project, doctors will examine deeper the use of the robot to conduct grand rounds, maneuvered by the doctor from somewhere else, as a potential solution to help reduce the spread of bacterial infections.

Contributors to the project are providing the means necessary to implement advanced technology in the medical field:
