Publication Date: 
Feb 19, 2016

A Prospective Pilot Study of the Use of Telemedicine During Pediatric Transport: A High-Quality, Low-Cost Alternative to Conventional Telemedicine Systems.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Sep 04, 2015

OBJECTIVE: Few trials address the use of telemedicine during pediatric transport. We believe that video conferencing has equivalent quality, connectivity, and ease of operation, can be done economically, and will improve evaluation.

A Bayesian cost-effectiveness analysis of a telemedicine-based strategy for the management of sleep apnoea: a multicentre randomised controlled trial.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Oct 15, 2015

BACKGROUND: Compliance with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is essential in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), but adequate control is not always possible. This is clinically important because CPAP can reverse the morbidity and mortality associated with OSA.
