According to The Los Angeles Times ever think of taking your blood pressure with a smart phone? If so, you may be in luck. Some companies are busy developing medical apps that would do just that.
Mobile health, or “mHealth,” is the latest craze among software designers and health industry companies that want to tap the potential of smart phones for purposes of health. As this Baltimore Sun story says: “Rockville-based CTIS Inc., for instance, is working with Walter Reed Army Medical Center to design an app called “mWarrior” for soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder to use on smart phones. And Baltimore-based WellDoc has devised an application that allows users to wirelessly connect blood glucose meters to their cell phones.”
As technology continues to evolve new apps are available almost every day. When it comes to plastic surgery there are apps that will morph a before-and-after result, and other interesting products. However, the personal approach and consultative nature of plastic surgery can never be overstated. Dr. O’Toole utilizes his one-on-one initial consultation to help the patient verbalize their desires and communicate realistic expectations. Patients seeking popular procedures such as liposuction or breast augmentation should not be lulled into the idea that these are routine procedures, and do not need much thought as to which doctor will be performing the procedure. Dr. O’Toole explains to his patients the importance of choosing ASPS board-certified plastic surgeons to help patients achieve the results that they desire.
