'OK Glass, Save A Life.' The Application Of Google Glass In Sudden Cardiac Death

'OK Glass, Save A Life.' The Application Of Google Glass In Sudden Cardiac Death | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Google GOOG +1.25% Glass has made its way into healthcare.  Its use in theoperating room and in medical education has been profiled here.  Yet the magic of Glass will be found in the applications that can make this “technology” into real-world solutions for health and medicine.  It’s a bit like the smart phone and how its realization is a function of the countless apps that bring the device to life.

 

Christian Assad, MD has taken the next step with Glass and developing a practical app that can turn Glass into a real life-saver. He recently profiles this application on his blog and I believe it’s an important turn of events that showcase just how technology can be applied to medicine and public health issues.  Here’s how it presents the concept in his blog–Google Glass and augmented CPR:

 

THE CPRGLASS SCENARIO

 

1)   Person walking, witnesses someone passing out (syncope)

 

2)   Individual says “OK GLASS, CPRGLASS”

 

A) Instructions appear ABC (Assess Airway, Breathing and Circulation)

 

B) “OK GLASS, No Pulse!”      (An algorithm developed by Hao-Yu Wu et al at MIT demonstrate how a normal camera can detect a pulse in a person with strong accuracy.) We are looking incorporate such algorithm aka (which will be open source) ”Eulerian video magnification” to CPRGLASS for 2 reasons;

 

1) Will help as an innovative method to assess if the compressions are adequate

 

2) Will be able to tell us if patient has regained pulse if we stop compressions, possibly, instead of even having to look for a pulse
