AbstractThe concept of telecritical care has evolved over several decades. ICU Telemedicine providers using both the hub-and-spoke ICU telemedicine center and consultative service delivery models offered their services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Telemedicine center responses were more efficient, timely, and widely used than those of the consultative model. Bedside nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and respiratory therapists incorporated the use of ICU telemedicine tools into their practices and more frequently requested critical care specialist telemedicine support.
