Since the outbreak of pneumonitis caused by a new coronavirus infection in Wuhan, Hubei years ago, the national epidemic situation has entered a state of high alert. How to efficiently and scientifically prevent epidemics, cut off the transmission channels in a timely manner, and treat patients as soon as possible is an important task at this stage.

As the vanguard of this new type of coronavirus-infected pneumonia, the challenges faced by the medical and health departments go far beyond professional medical problems.

What kind of challenges does medical emergency communications face in an emergency?

The major public health measures adopted in China during the special epidemic period are: Admit suspected patients to a single room for temporary reconstruction, and treat patients with mild cases into a "square cabin" hospital for centralized observation. However, due to the large base of patient population, the old hardware facilities, the lagging medical system in the rehabilitated treatment sites, the uneven level of medical technology, the serious shortage of medical staff, and the temporary combination and coordination of medical teams in different regions / departments. Prevents the identification of patients with different levels of illness, and even worse, directly leads to the exacerbation and death of some severely ill patients.

Based on the above problems, the medical department needs to form a set of scientific procedures for diagnosis, treatment, and treatment of patients when faced with this kind of special emergency epidemic, and actively carry out targeted treatment for patients with different levels of illness in order to be effective. Reduce the mortality and transmission rate of patients with pneumonitis infected by new coronavirus in epidemic areas.

Division of working groups, efficient and fast communication of information

According to Health China, as of 24:00 on February 11, a total of 44,653 new cases of new coronary pneumonia have been diagnosed nationwide, of which 1,638 have been newly diagnosed in Hubei alone. The temporarily renovated medical point needs to identify, divert, and transfer a large number of confirmed cases in time while treating a large number of suspected patients, which causes a huge workload for medical staff.

Although forms such as WeChat group and mobile phone real-time communication have become the norm, the communication and coordination of medical staff in different regions, different hospitals, and different departments require more standardized and stable unified scheduling. Among them, the use of wireless intercom equipment enables medical staff to connect with patient information in real time, clarify their respective division of labor and tasks, and at the same time ensure that the communication equipment in each work area "interaction does not cross", forming a unified centralized command and dispatch system.

Through different groups of medical emergency walkie-talkies, for example, based on the separation of the isolation ward (contaminated area) and the doctor's office area (clean area), the hospital can be divided into 4 groups: 1 group for consultation, 2 groups for rounds, 3 Group docking group, 4 groups of mobile groups, medical staff in different groups can directly intercommunicate patients' illnesses through walkie-talkies, avoid direct face-to-face contact between personnel, and reduce cross-infection between high-risk patients and medical staff.

In short, compared with traditional face-to-face paper-and-pen communication, walkie-talkie equipment is more secure and efficient; compared with emerging network platforms and mobile phone communications, walkie-talkies are more stable and easier to dispatch. Medical teams are equipped with walkie-talkies, which facilitates communication between medical personnel, Cooperate and avoid carrying and spreading the virus.

In addition, since the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus, the shortage of medical supplies has become the biggest problem for hospitals. In the current situation where medical protective equipment is in short supply, the use of two-way radios to set up different groups to communicate can allow medical staff to work relatively in a fixed area, reducing the use of medical protective equipment.

The current epidemic situation is still in the tense stage of prevention and control. IFLY has also donated Beifeng medical emergency communication equipment to Huanggang Anti-epidemic Work Command and Wuhan Tongji Hospital to provide a solid communication guarantee for medical staff.
