“Teknik på ett helt nytt sätt kan rädda liv på distans”

About: Article about a new project called “Livräddning på distans” where the idea is to teach people to use telemedicine without being a nurse. For example at a constructor site if someone gets injured and you call for an ambulance, then you can by video get assisted by the ambulance staff to perform certain life saving efforts. This will be a way to get help to the patient faster and video is a great way to do that.

Om: En artikel om ett nytt projekt som kallas “Livräddning på distans” där idén är att man vill utbilda människor i hur telemedicin kan användas utan att man är en sjuksköterska. Till exempel på en byggarbetsplats om någon blir skadad och man då ringer efter ambulans, då kan man bli assisterad via video och få hjälp med att utföra livräddning av ambulanspersonalen. Detta är ett sätt att ge vård till patienten snabbare och då är video ett bra hjälpmedel för detta.
