Severely ill patients are treated in ICUs, but there's a global shortage of facilities and staff. The units require top technology and skills and developing countries struggle to train staff and fund such facilities. A Japanese start-up supports these units by remotely connecting them with Japanese ICU teams. Since 2020, hospital ICUs in 12 developing countries can share patients' medical records, cardiograms and images online. Explore this new medical support project and its focus on ICUs.
