Now I have moved into the strategy team we get a number of random people coming round with all sorts of ideas.  When I started with the Hospital a few years ago I observed surgery carried out by one of our Thoracic surgeons.  He popped by today to show us a new gadget.

He got me to sit down and gave me a metal oblong with rubber on one side and was about 10cm by 5cm.  You relax and put your hands on your lap holding this small piece of metal and pressing your thumbs into it.  It reads your heart rate (64) and after 30 seconds gives you an ECG assessment.

I have a normal ECG and it took 30 seconds of my thumbs and the surgeon's iphone.

There are times when the future of medicine makes me grin.
