Using tele-ICU to support New York hospital
Using tele-ICU capabilities, Mayo Clinic physicians in critical care medicine are volunteering to support staff at New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, which has been inundated with COVID-19 cases. At this unprecedented time, these two organizations are collaborating and innovating to help patients.
On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Sean Caples, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist and critical care physician, describes the real-time connectivity for Mayo physicians to provide assistance from anywhere directly to the New York-Presbyterian Lawrence ICU. At the same time, Mayo doctors are drawing on the experience gained by New York-Presbyterian Lawrence providers in caring for patients with COVID-19 and its complications.
