iPhone and iPod Touch as a Medical Tool
Ohio State University Medical Center developed programs on the iphone and ipod touch for medical students and physicians. Used for education of med students as well as patient care. iMurmur: your guide to heart sounds, lectures as pod casts, access to online databases such as pubmed are a few examples of utilization of these devices. Have a look at the video to see some examples.
Good wifi connection in the hospital ensures quick delivery of searches like a wireless laptop.
Thanks David Rothman who also co authored a very interesting book: Internet Cool Tools for Physicians, reviewed on this blog.

iPhone is now used in the whole world for different reasons, it’s nice that now it is used as a Medical tool, not only for physicians but for patients too. All this new mobile technology has demonstrated to be useful not only for fun. In fact recently I hear of some Physicians working to create an educational videogame for iPhone. All Physicians interested in videos on Medical Topics, visit Symposier site.
