Ever want to check out your patient’s heart valves at bedside, in the hallway, or at the nurse’s station? Even check out a friend’s heart valves at a cocktail party? Well, that may be going overboard, but at least you would know you could if you wanted to.
These mobile ultrasound devices, at the size of a cellular phone, can dramatically improve health care delivery, patient education (because you can show them what’s going on in real time), and health care costs.
You can also view heart musculature, rhythm, and blood flow. Hello future, it’s nice to meet you. Bye stethoscopes, it was nice knowing you.
