The Adventures of Tele-Man!
With resources shrinking at every turn and the nearest trauma center hundreds of miles away, citizens in remotes areas of the country were living in fear. What if Johnny had a stroke? What if little Mary Jane delivered her baby early? How can someone be at two places at once, when the need is great and there is no time to spare?
Have no fear, Tele-Man is here!
Dr. Brett C. Meyer, a cunning stroke neurologist, heard the cries from the needy and answered them with Telemedicine!
Through the use of embedded video technology, covalently bonded to his skeleton, Tele-Man can use cameras and computer screens to virtually transport himself immediately to remote areas in need. In essence telemedicine can allow him to be in two places at once!
Anywhere, anytime, patients can get the care they need through the amazing technology of a “computer” screen. Lending a helping hand to caring practitioners in cities far, far, away, Tele-Man is there. Current telemedicine technologies allow Tele-Man to utilize the Internet to enable high quality data, video and audio transmission in real time, from one provider to another, almost irrespective of distance.
“The power of technology is awesome. Using telemedicine, I can not only see what is happening in a far-away place, I can in essence virtually be there to potentially save the day.”
Being able to see, what others may not see, Tele-Man is there.
“Patients are in need of expert assistance and care providers may not have immediate access to this expertise, so that is where telemedicine can make a huge difference.”
“If I could hook up an Internet line, I may even be able to provide tele-stroke care to my home planet of TELEON…. although that would require an Ethernet cable of 780,000 light years in length.”
But until such as time …
Guiding medical care, evil diseases beware, Tele-Man is there!
