The pilot test of the prototype for modern remote intervention in cases of incidents of medical interest at sea developed for the needs of the SeaHealth project was completed with complete success.
The pilot test of the prototype for modern remote intervention in the event of incidents of medical interest at sea developed for the needs of the SeaHealth project was completed with complete success. The telemedicine support platform for commercial ship crews, which aims to guide and achieve the best possible response to acute incidents at sea and to manage possible chronic crew diseases as well as to implement prevention interventions (e.g. accident prevention lessons, interventions to reduce exposure to hazardous agents).
The platform uses both sound and image in order to obtain the best possible and accurate information on the patient’s condition. The objectives are to address acute cases, as far as possible on the basis of guidance and distance medicine supervision. This platform was developed during the project and its pilot application was implemented with the presence of 2 captains and the crew officer of DANAOS, 2 doctors of the Research Team of the University School Clinic of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA) and was technically supported by the IT department of SQLearn. The National and European projects department of SQLearn coordinated the action.
The research project “Elearning platform for Seafarers for first aid and health issues”- SeaHealth (Υγεία εν πλω) through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation under the call RESEARCH –CREATE –INNOVATE, is implemented by SQLearn and Danaos Shipping in collaboration with the 1st Otolaryngology Clinic of National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA).
