Have come across interesting technology. The device is FDA approved and being tested in a major NYC hospital. System includes  IPOD sized EKG machine and leadless glove placed on chest. You place glove, hit button and EKG transmitted by cell phone or computer. In two minutes station will notify you of cardiac event and take over notifying EMS, your local hospital, doctor, transmitting EKG to hospital, etc. If initial reading is negative can do follow up serial EKGs until you are non-symptomatic, or personal doctor takes over. Mean't to minimize time to get to treatment if an event is occurring or monitor potential events in such a way that anxiety can be lowered, prevent needless trip to ER, provide timely info to hospital which is critical, and many other significant benefits to patient and treatment team. When brought to market, expected to run $300=$400 for machine and $35-$40 a month monitoring service like ADT burgular alarm but for your heart. Wondering what people on forum think of technology. Can this significantly improve your life.
