A mobile telemedicine system, capable of transmitting video and audio simultaneously, was designed for consulting acute stroke patients remotely. It could use a wireless local area network (e.g. inside the hospital) or a mobile phone network (e.g. outside the hospital). When initiating a call, the sending unit chose a suitable encoding profile based on the measured data throughput, in order to allocate appropriate bit rates for video and audio transmission.

The unprecedented and growing threats to the safety and security of the U.S. population and many other countries around the world from Mass Casualty Incidents (MCIs), both natural and manmade, range in scope from the general and massive to directed and local. In a post-9/11 world, there is renewed emphasis to develop a global, systematic, coordinated, comprehensive strategy to improve medical response to catastrophic events. Such strategy must address all aspects of preparedness and response, including early detection, local risk awareness, containment, treatment of victims for each region or county involved, and subsequent prevention of injury or illness (mitigation). Communication from MCI sites to outside resource providers is a common problem. Communication gaps regarding medical needs may lead to delays in critical care.
