1. Thanks for...

...posting. I watched the entire segment. My feeling is that some of the innovations mentioned cannot get here soon enough.

2. That's awesome.

I'd like to see one of these in every EMS unit, too.

3. the vet I work for has and uses the ekg app on her iphone

It is very cool and super easy to use. It is limited (for now), but will certainly help a lot of people (and animals).

5. Between the sensor-equipped smartphones and the handheld ultrasound...

...we now have the medical tricorder from Star Trek.

Bones or Dr. Crusher just held their gadgets in their hands to scan patients - a handheld ultrasound is only different in that the doctor holds it in contact with you, and he can see your organs working in real-time.

For those of you with Android phones, here's an app that you can use to take your pulse and get a mini-cardiogram just by holding your finger over your phone's camera.
