AET's Telemedicine Solution Provides Real-Time Echocardiogram Consult, Saves Costly Transport of Newborn Infant
Date:11/2/2009

OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Telemedicine solution provider AET (American Educational Telecommunications; www.aetmedical.com) completed a first of its kind, real-time remote diagnosis of a newborn baby's heart murmur between Faith Regional Health Services and Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Norfolk and Omaha, NE, respectively. The diagnosis used advanced wireless video conferencing technology through a mobile camera device connected to an ultrasound machine. View the video at http://www.aetmedical.net/Video.html ("Live Echocardiogram Diagnosis of Newborn's Heart Defect").

A baby boy was one of triplets recently delivered by Dr. Keith Vrbicky, OB-Gyn at Norfolk-based Midwest Health Partners and an attending physician at Faith Regional Health Services. The baby's pediatrician, Dr. Jayan ('Dr. Jay') Vasudevan, also with Midwest Health Partners, became concerned about an obvious heart murmur of one of triplets while performing a post natal examination. Dr. Jay immediately requested a consult with a pediatric cardiologist to diagnose the severity. The closest pediatric cardiologist was at Children's Hospital & Medical Center, 115 miles from the Norfolk medical facility. The doctors agreed to set up a telemedicine consult utilizing a remote echocardiogram system connected to a mobile and wireless transmitting video conferencing device, rather than immediately transporting the baby to Omaha.

"If the diagnosis could be determined to be a mild defect, it would enable us to keep the family together in Norfolk and immediately eliminate the uncertainty of a potentially harmful heart defect," said Dr. Vrbicky. "Without the telemedicine consult, there was a real possibility that the baby would have had to be transported either via helicopter or ambulance to Omaha at a very high cost."
