Abstract

The maritime medical tele-consultation carried out by a doctor from the Toulouse Tele-Medical Assistance Service is currently based on tele-consultation using radiotelegraphy and the complementary transmission of data (photographs, electrocardiogram) via the Internet. In a previous article, we presented the benefits of photograph transmission for trauma management in isolated areas. Through this new series of cases, we wanted to expose the aspect of the medical pathologies and the contribution of sending photographs in their management.

Case reports: Case 1. Myocardial infarction. Case 2. Toxic epidermal necrolysis. Case 3. Tooth abscess. Case 4. Shingles. Case 5. Junctional tachycardia.

The tele-transmission of photographs provides a real diagnostic and follow-up tool for patients suffering from medical pathologies. The constant increase in the number of tele-consultations with the exchange of photographs shows its necessity and the interest of the participants in the development of these technologies.
