What is RettungsNetz-5G?

The 5G rescue network project is a project funded by the Federal Ministry for Digital Affairs and Transport that uses the many new possibilities of the performance of 5G mobile communications technology for faster and better medical emergency care.

The rescue network 5G project serves to develop the potential and the gradual use of the new mobile communications standard and several associated technological innovations.

Why RettungsNetz-5G?

5G is the mobile communications standard of the future: faster, more secure, lower latencies and more devices at the same time are possible with it. All of this predestines 5G for use in rescue medicine.

A regional project consortium around the Rhine-Neckar region association, the university medicine and the University of Mannheim sees great opportunities here.

How does RettungsNetz-5G work?

Specifically, it is about the 5G connection of the ambulance to the clinic and thus an upgrade of the diagnostics already at the scene of the accident and in the ambulance with medical support from the clinic. The latest medical devices, including a mobile CT, are also used.

The emergency services at the scene of the accident are supported in real time by cloud-based AI systems. The aim is to shorten the time to optimal treatment and thereby improve care and save lives.
