Lines betwn personal/professional contnue 2 blur, as I now use my @iPhone flashlght 2 look into my patients mouths. OK 2 clean it w/ alcohl?
I jokingly responded:
This makes me feel a bit uneasy, Bob. What if the phone rings? Or worse, buzzes! :)
Good point, tho its not inside mouth (just outsde). Its 1 more sign of Swiss-army-knife nature of iPhone: 1 less thing 2 to carry
But then @drsusanshaw from Saskatchewan jumped in:
Just the other day I used iPhone flashlight to help surgeon identify bleeding vessel in an ICU patient.
They say it usually takes 14 years for a new medical device or procedure to infuse the market. Is this one faster? Please comment if you have seen similar examples.
