Here it is a bit the same. “Having the equipment, we have to put it to use”, she says. “I think we feel safer. A simple headache, a malaise can be an alteration [da doença] and using the equipment we know if it is or not. Many times a person would let it pass and not see it, now we have the opportunity to measure and the team receives the data. It automatically calls if there is something serious and we are immediately forwarded.”
