Eastbourne EP Laboratory

  • ,


The Eastbourne Cardiology department had a new requirement for a recording and streaming solution, for their EP laboratory, for multiple patient procedures. The requirement was to enable a remote educational facility and also, a recording archive system for offline education.

Eastbourne had already been using the Life Stream remote solution for their MDT meetings, communicating with Brighton. The task was set for Life Stream to develop a lab system meeting the specification utilising the Life Stream technology.

The system was developed to the requirement of Dr Stephen Furniss, Consultant Cardiologist and President at Heart Rhythm UK.

One of the existing Cardiology labs, at Eastbourne District General Hospital, was chosen for the new Life Stream EP Laboratory.

The remote live real time stream of the procedures connect across the NHS N3 network to NHS Hospital locations, with an external secure encrypted connection facility to send images to any internet connected location.
