Abstract

Telemedicine quickly is becoming part and parcel of how clinicians practice medicine. Numerous definitions of telemedicine exist but, in essence, telemedicine consists of information sharing between at least two physically and geographically disparate sites for educational or health purposes.(10)Telemedicine can involve something as simple as a telephone call between two physicians or something as complex as real-time, inter active, multipoint videoconferencing with application sharing. Transmission of data, information, or images by telephone, facsimile, store and forward, e-mail clients,or interactive video all meet the definition. Consultative and direct patient care and continuing medical education can be accomplished using telemedical systems. Essentially every specialty of medicine has experimented withor presently is using telemedicine in some fashion. In fact, many clinicians have provided telemedical services and long distance education for yearsthrough phone communication with fellows, residents, and other health carepersonnel. Cardiology has been using the telephone to transmit electrocardiograms for more than a decade and has been performing pacemaker checks across telephone lines. Obviously, the ubiquitous Internet is an example of a potential platform for telemedicine. Telemedical applications once were confined to connecting rural or remote areas to centralized centers. Today, telemedicine is already an integral component in the delivery of health care that easily can cross all geographicborders. In the future, telemedicine will become even more integrated intothe mainstream of health care. It will provide essential tools for improving the efficiency of health care communication and will add safety for the health care provider by making health care available under less than ideal circumstances such as a terrorist attack with biologic weapons.(12, 21) Ultimately, patients will determine whether telemedicine meets their needs. The purpose of this article is to review the history of telemedicine, the literature as it pertains to telecardiology and ICU applications, and to suggest how telemedicine will impact cardiology services in the future.
