Summary Telemedicine used for pre-hospital diagnosis of a patient with acute pulmonary embolism Ugeskr Læger 2008;170(9):753 Mortality in untreated pulmonary embolism is high and short-term outcome depends on a timely diagnosis [4]. In this case telemedicine involving 12-lead ECG and GSM-based communication between the patient in the ambulance and the telemedical staff resulted in remote pre-hospital suspicion of acute pulmonary embolism. The ambulance was referred directly to the nearest department of cardiology where acute CT and echocardiography confirmed the diagnosis. Acute trombolysis was successful. Telemedicine may be beneficial in other medical emergencies than acute myocardial infarction.
