Abstract

The use of telemedicine is long-standing, but only recently has been applied to the specialties of trauma, emergency care, and surgery. Subsequently the concepts of teletrauma, telepresence, and telesurgery have evolved and are being integrated into modern care of trauma and surgical patients. This chapter will review the current applications and future endeavors of telemedicine and telepresence to trauma and emergency care as the new frontiers of telemedicine application.
