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.
