“Video-call Assisted Assessment of Acute Stroke in Addition to Stroke Severity Scales in a Prehospital Setting”
About: Interventional study in Denmark to investigate if a live video stream between the on-call neurologist and the EMS is feasible. The study focuses on patients with suspected stroke.
Start date: 2023-05
End date: 2023-07
Study performed in Denmark.
“Dispatch of Emergency Call Using Video Streaming Compared With Traditional Telephone Communication (CAM-VISION)”
About: Interventional study to test video streaming in emergency calls. One group of paramedics and nurses answered emergency calls with video streaming and the other group with regular audio calls to compare if the group with video streaming could better assess the patient. The study went on for four months to collect data.
Start date: 2023-01-01
End date: 2023-04-30
Study performed in Denmark.
“Do Video Calls Improve Dispatcher-Assisted First Aid for Infants with Foreign Body Airway Obstruction? A Randomized Controlled Trial/Simulation Study”
About: An interventional study performed to assess if video calls could improve the results of foreign body airway obstruction (FBAO) by bystanders on infants. One group in the study got to perform first aid with video call and one group with audio call, which were both instructed by the medical emergency dispatcher.

“Telemedicine Can Replace the Neurologist on a Mobile Stroke Unit”
About: Research article about a comparative study where one group of stroke patients in a mobile stroke unit was examined by an onboard neurologist while the other group was examined via a telemedicine neurologist (audio and video). It was found that a telemedicine neurologist gave a reliable and accurate assessment of the stroke patient.
