Video: Futuristic medic headset helps accelerate care

The Paramedic Pro Golden-I headset allows medics to relay and obtain patient information all hands-free

By FireRescue1 Staff

NOTTINGHAM, England — A futuristic headset computer has been unveiled that aims to help medics improve response times and be more efficient, all while being hands-free.

Crews will be able to wear the Paramedic Pro Golden-i headset – designed by Ikanos Conuslting -- and speak into it to record information and retrieve patient histories.

The device features video chat, audio recording and access to information at the point of care. With its built-in camera, the headset enables direct video communication between field EMS providers and A&E, so experts at a hospital can assess a situation and provide timely advice.

Medics will also be able to see needed information on a 15-inch display as well as a GPS system and maps function to relay estimated times of arrival to hospitals and scenes.

"In emergencies, every second counts – Paramedic Pro provides the communications and information that medics need to save time, and to deliver the best possible patient care,” said James Woodall, CEO at Ikanos Consulting.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 8:19:10 PM while enroute to the hospital with the patient, and both medics in the back, whose driving to the ED, I know that thing is not navigating itself lol?
Tuesday, November 13, 2012 8:21:16 PM Seems to work good on amedical or trauma single patient call, but how does it do for a MCI call with 5 patients or more?

(CERT member question).
