Apple’s iPhone has got a lot of people excited… including the Medgadget crew. Why? Well, among its other uses, it’s a powerful medical device. For instance, you can use the iPhone to:
1. Watch medical podcasts
2. Dial 911
Sure, you could always do this before on a separate iPod and cell phone, but convergence is key. Later this year, we expect to hear about the first patients that diagnosed their MI via medical videos watched on their iPhone, and were able to alert EMS with the very same device.
Then, hopefully, Steve Jobs will add a defibrillator to the second-generation iPhone.
Got other medical uses for an iPhone? Put ’em in the comments, we need more excuses to switch carriers…
