There are unfortunately times when emergency medical responders arrive on the scene of an accident requiring immediate medical care that is beyond their capabilities. In fact, as the medical world becomes increasingly specialized, this situation can mean the difference of life and death. When they are equipped with a camera, a video frame grabber from Alacron, and a web-enabled laptop, first responders can get the help they need at the moment it is needed.
With a video frame grabber, the responder can relay live video images directly back to a hospital or a doctor. This makes it possible for the higher-level medical personnel to provide the guidance needed to help the responder deal with the situation at hand, resulting in faster and better medical care and a much higher chance that they can save a patient's life or limbs.
