David Albert, MD, Founder & Chief Medical Officer, AliveCor, demonstrates the AliveCor ?ECG, an iPhone accessory that will allow both physicians and patients to ?capture and transmit clinical quality heart ECG data using their smart phones'.
    Per their website the Alivcor Heart Monitor is a 
    '..quality, single-channel ECG recorder that leverages the power, display, and communication capabilities of the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. '
    'The Heart Monitor does not use power from the iPhone, but utilizes a 3.0V coin cell battery that will take up to roughly 10,000, 30-second ECGs before needing replacement. The Heart Monitor also uses AliveCor’s proprietary wireless communication protocol to communicate with the app, and requires no pairing between the iPhone and the Heart Monitor.'

    This Week in Oncology with Jack Andraka

    in Health

    On the Wednesday, February 20th at 1:30PM Pacific/4:30PM Eastern broadcast we are super stoked to chat with scientist, cancer researcher and mathematician, and did I say High School student Jack Andraka. Andraka is the 2012 Intel Science Fair grand prize winner. He was honored with the Gordon E. Moore Award for his work in developing a new method to detect pancreatic cancer.
    I learned about Jack for the fist time from the FutureMed 2013 livestreaming broadcast on February 5th, 2013, titled 'the future of oncology'.
    May I say, I (as were all in attendance at FutureMed as well as the global audience following via the livestream broadcast) was blown away by his passion, intellect and tenacity. For some background information on Jack, see: Meet Jack Andraka: Mathematician, Scientist, Cancer Researcher.
    Listening to him I immediately thought he would be a treat for our listeners, so I reached out to Jack and he's agreed to be on the show.
    For more on this amazing and inspirational young man, take a peek at the entry at wikipedia: Jack Andraka.
    His story of determination in the face of 199 academic rejections, and one tepid, 'we'll see' what you got reception frames focus and passion in a way that many do not experience. 
    Tune in for what will be an informative and fun session.
