|Title:||Use of 3G mobile phone links for teleconsultation between a moving ambulance and a hospital base station|

|Abstract:||The importance of this paper lays in its suggestion: minimise the time for the initial treatment of a patient. As soon as an ambulance receives a patient, a videoconferencing session can be initiated between the moving vehicle and a base station in a hospital where a medical consultant resides. The communication link is implemented using 3G networks. Effectively, the use of such a system can decrease fatality on patients being transferred to A&E, as expert opinion can be obtained straight away. This paper was repeatedly cited in IEEE papers and formed the basis for an EPSRC proposal that was recently submitted.|
