Abstract

Background: Recent technological developments have made possible telemedicine application in the management of trauma and emergency care especially in remote areas and isolated communities. Methods: Review of the literature. Results: As technology is becoming friendlier and cheaper, the concept of teletrauma, telepresence, and teleresuscitation are evolving and are being integrated into modern care of trauma and surgical patients. The biggest promise of teletrauma and teleresuscitation is the intervention in the golden hour and transformation of this concept to golden minutes and the stabilization of the patient and safe transport to trauma center when indicated. Conclusions: This article reviews the current applications and the future of telemedicine and telepresence to trauma, emergency, and disaster management, the new frontiers of telemedicine application.
