Medical Gadgets

There are some cool medical gadgets around at the moment. I’ve just bought and been using the new Electronic 3M Littmann Stethoscopes Digital Cardiology Stethoscope and its loads better than the old version and much easier to use. I’ve also been playing with a Welch Allyn Digital Macroview Otoscope which puts a video image on your PC which is really cool. Patients love being able to see their own ears and you can record images or video to save in the record if you want. I love my Alivecor 6L – for single or 6 lead ECGS (though the app is rubbish).

Have you used any cool gadgets recently that I should try? (I would love a really good ophthalmoscope but the ones I’ve tried so far haven’t been great).
