Abstract

Results from a descriptive study on Swedish Telemedical Advice Services (TMAS) from 1997, 2002, 2007, and the first six months of 2009 on infectious conditions are presented. These findings concern symptoms, actions taken, number of evacuations, means of communication, and use of digital photos. They show that infectious conditions are a significant contributor to calls to the service and that they can be more frequently treated on board than can other conditions.
