Shark Week on Discovery Channel, and one episode will focus on how paramedics leverage AT&T’s IoT connectivity and a virtual exam room to remotely monitor and diagnose diver conditions in shark-infested waters off the coast of the Bahamas.

The divers and production team on the show were able to access a full clinic through Dictum Health’s Virtual Exam Room (VER) through wireless connectivity from AT&T. Through VER, physicians on land were able to remotely monitor critical vital signs, ECG, and pain levels to ensure the health and safety of the divers and production team.
