Medical Team Uses Toughbook H1 in Disaster Relief Efforts
Within 48 hours of last week’s earthquake in Haiti two 747s arrived in Port-au-Prince from Israel bringing a model medical disaster response solution. On the grounds of an abandoned steel factory, a temporary field hospital – equipped with electronic medical records, digital radiology, an operating room, ICU and neonatal intensive care – was set up to assist victims of the quake. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams stated that the Israeli medical team was using the best field medicine available. The report shows the Panasonic Toughbook H1 being used as part of the Israeli’s disaster response solution.
