Close your eyes and imagine the scene with me. You’re at Grandma Betty’s house for a family gathering. Suddenly, Grandma Betty begins to experience chest pain. She’s had some issues with her heart in the past. But could this be it? Could Grandma Betty really be having a heart attack? Your normal reaction would be to call 911, right? Not this time. Instead, you simply pull out your iPhone and use AliveCor’s ECG app to detect Grandma’s heart rhythm. And thankfully, her heart appears to be normal this time.

No, this isn’t a science fiction story. The iPhone ECG app is real…and very close to a FDA approval. Dr. David Albert is bringing it to live. Some of the interview outtakes from Dr. David Albert with http://medsider.com are below!
