Suffered a Heart Attack? There’s an App For That

iPhone 5

There seems to be an app for everything these days, so it’s not surprising there’s an app for those who suffer from heart troubles.

Forbes has a write-up on the new app designed by university students that allows the iPhone to take a snapshot of the EGG data and send the data over a secure network using the iPhone’s wi-fi capabilities.

David R. Burt, lead author of the study, in a press release from the AHA…

“Simple cellular technology can save lives,” … “This system may make pre-hospital ECG transmission a more inexpensive and reliable option. That can translate to faster treatment and saved lives.”

The app makes it fast and easy to capture data compared to the troglodyte technology currently used for EGG data snapshots. This could become a major breakthrough in way heart treatment is handled in the future.
