The Stethoscope is on it's Way Out

Another great video from TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). This video shows Dr. Eric Topol at the TEDMED conference talking about the wireless future of medicine.

Some key points from the talk:
  • The stethoscope was invented in 1816, but in 2016 doctors won't be walking around with stethoscopes.
  • The future is digital medical wireless devices.
  • Checking your vital signs will be as easy as checking your e-mail.
