Medical projects engineer fro ESA, Roger Huerta Lluch, carries out remote Tempus Pro training for emergency medical teams in Barcelona, Spain, from his station at ESA's European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne, Germany.
Two Tempus Pro devices have been loaned to Spain's Sistema d’Emergències Mèdiques (SEM) to help in the fight against COVID-19.
Offering ultrasound, laryngoscopy and electrocardiogram among other features, the Tempus Pro devices allow operators to quickly check a patient’s vital parameters such as heartrate, blood pressure, respiration rate and temperature, before transmitting these to medical colleagues elsewhere. This can be done via a secure satellite link or phone network such as 4G.
In its first version, Tempus Pro was designed as a telemedicine device for commercial airlines. It has been further supported by ESAto become a dual-use, lightweight, all-in-one monitor with telemedicine capabilities for healthcare professionals.
