During challenging times, secure and reliable communications in healthcare can improve operational efficiency and response times significantly. However, all the procedures must be planned beforehand in order to be ready to apply them immediately when needed.
All medical professionals face the same problem – constantly up against the clock while trying to save lives. This involves plenty of teamwork, particularly in trauma teams and emergency surgery.

At a major accident, casualties need to be treated as soon as possible. But what if there are more injured people than ambulances to carry them?
