Telemedicine Expedition Success
As part of OPERATION OUTREACH: NEPAL 1998 PHASE I, the Trillium 3000™ Holter Recorder/Analyzer was tested in the extreme climate of Nepal's Mount Everest. After the tests, Dr. Vincent Grasso, Medical Director, Everest Extreme Expedition and founder of Extreme Telemedicine www.tima.net provided the following comments:
"The Trillium 3000 monitor performed flawlessly despite the adverse conditions at Everest. Medical data was recorded, stored and transmitted via satellite without difficulty during the entire expedition. I now feel confident that the product can be integrated into the OPERATION OUTREACH projects, continuing with Uganda July 23rd."
