Tests are made on electrical digital tele-electrocardiography distributed throughout the state.

The telemedicine program implemented in Rio Grande do Norte reached in July this year, the volume of 10,711 tests, totaling 17,859 in all diagnostic cardiology. Of these, 327 were diagnostic of infarction. The tests are done on electrical tele-electrocardiography and digital broadcast via landline, mobile or internet to send professionals to the diagnosis.

The eight health regions of Rio Grande do Norte have a total of 238 sets of digital tele-electrocardiography 12 simultaneous leads, distributed in 167 municipalities in the state.

Since you can not have a cardiologist in each county of the state, and the electrocardiogram usually need a cardiologist to be interpreted, telemedicine is an important support to cover the absence of local professional.

This program is referenced by the SUS and the greater benefit of society, which has guaranteed access to health facility. We reach the most remote places of the state, providing the decentralization of health care, said the Telemedicine Program Coordinator, Carlos Eduardo Costa.

The program works simply, with a standard telephone line or mobile phone to send the exam via beeps a Telemedicine Center. The Central decodes the transmission recorded in a database (electronic medical record). Immediately, the medical team on call reviews the electrocardiogram sent by the doctor.
