This study was to investigate the types of emergencies transported by the Southwestern Coast Guard, the need for telemedicine guidance, and the perception and attitude of smart glasses as a communication method targeting 31 coast guards. A relatively high frequency and training requirement were confirmed for bleeding, abrasion, and abdominal pain. The demand for telemedicine guidance on medication and triage was higher, and the perceived usefulness and attitude scores for the use of smart glasses were 3.76±0.61 and 3.64±0.45, respectively. A moderate correlation between perceived usefulness and attitude toward smart glasses was confirmed (r=.630, p<.01). With the development of technology, it is time to actively introduce new devices such as smart glasses.

본 연구는 서남해안 해양경찰이 이송하는 응급환자 유형과 이와 관련된 교육 및 원격의료지도의 필요성, 통신수단으로서 스마트글래스에 대한 인식과 태도를 알아보고자 31명의 해양경찰을 대상으로 수행되었다. 응급환자 유형은 출혈, 자상, 복통에서 상대적으로 높은 빈도와 훈련요구도가 확인되었다. 반면에 약물사용과 중증도 분류에 대한 원격의료지도 요구가 높았으며, 통신도구로서 스마트글래스의 활용에 대한 인지된 유용성과 태도점수는 각각 3.76±0.61점, 3.64±0.45점이었다. 스마트글래스에 대한 인지된 유용성과 태도 간 중간 정도의 상관관계가 확인되었다(r=.630, p<.01). 기술의 발전과 함께 해양경찰의 응급구조 활동의 효율성과 안전성을 높이기 위해 스마트글래스와 같은 새로운 장비의 적극적 도입과 다양한 노력이 필요한 시점이다.
