- For example, if a doctor or nurse patient’s bed and instantly see all their vitals such as pulse, BP, Body temp, O2 Sats, etc.
- The ability for the doctor to overlay an image of an MRI or scan on the patient and point out or discuss it with easy.
- We can also implement a use for the patients and doctors who use Glass, they can have a patient to doctor talk/appointment. And live stream and confidential information will go through a secure portal.
- Since most of things can be done in real-time things like taking a picture of a lesion or tumor, and having a pathologist or colleague give a timely opinion can be done.
- Consulting an expert, or checking any data for a better, safer surgery.This way doctors can see what the students or residents are doing.
- Also the Glass can sense the body temperature of the person/patient which will help the doctor to see if they have any sort of fever or other bodily problems.
It will also be good to implement some sort of medical dashboard that displays patient vital signs, urgent lab results and surgical checklists.
In addition to medical applications and technology, in Ed's blog he mentioned the use of a pill that can be swallowed by the patient and take pictures of the intestines and real back the images to the doctor. This way the doctor can see if the patient has any internal bleeding, chrons disease or any other gastro problems. From what I've read is that the intestine is a difficult part for the doctors to get any visual info on.
Although the Google glass cannot completely diagnose the patient of a disease, which is why we will still need doctors to that part of the job. But who knows maybe in a couple of years we will have the technology to do it for us.
