BISAC: MED078000

This book focuses on the benefits and challenges of telemedicine in the age of and when treating COVID-19. Telemedicine can be considered to play a major part in COVID-19 patients’ management, because it provides a quick and precise diagnosis that is obtained without unnecessary exposure of the medical personnel. The first chapter focuses on arrhythmias in COVID-19 patients. It is mandatory to assess whether arrhythmias in COVID-19 patients are preventable, treatable or permanent, or if they have long-term effects on the patient’s cardiovascular status. The second chapter examines the future of Internet healthcare on the foundation of a traditional model in the age of COVID-19. Next, the pros and cons of telemedicine, including the ways in which virtual telemedicine platforms rationalize and address the costs, accessibility, and quality of care that affect healthcare management are explored. The authors of the fourth chapter look at the legal ethical dilemmas related to the care of COVID-19 patients through telemedicine. And finally, the role of telemedicine in COVID times for neurologists and neurosurgeons in particular are explored in detail.
