Teleanesthesia ::: An existing surgical robot could be used to perform complex regional anesthesia procedures—in theory, allowing expert anesthesiologists to perform robot-assisted procedures from remote locations.
Surgical Robots Could Be Used for 'Teleanesthesia'
The researchers performed a series of simulations to evaluate the feasibility of performing robot-assisted regional anesthesia procedures. The simulations used an existing surgical robot, called the da Vinci system. Consisting of four robotic arms with a high-definition stereoscopic camera, the da Vinci system is used to perform various types of robot-assisted surgical procedures.
