Wow! I am a degreed electrical engineer with a major in microprocessor hardware and software design and have been working with a cardiologist for over five years but this just blows me away (plus I am a little envious I didn't think of it, lol)!
A group of researchers have developed an iPhone app that uses the flash and camera functions to operate like a mini pulse oximeter capable of accurately diagnosing atrial fibrillation. Here is an article discussing this cool new app.
Anybody had any experience (bought it, used it, heard anything at all about it, etc.) with this app? Afib is one of those conditions that is widely under-diagnosed and easily treated but can be deadly if not caught in time. This new app could end that problem!
Man, just cool!
