(ED NOTE: Jordan is doing a Hangout tonight, Wednesday, July 9th at 9:00 PM EST, along with Panelists Dave Albert MD, of AliveCor.com, and Jay Widmer MD, Mayo Clinic Cardiology Fellow at this
In this video, Jordan Safirstein, MD, director of transradial intervention at Morristown Medical Center, Morristown, N.J., films a transradial access case using Google Glass.
Safirstein, who was part of Google Glass’ initial 1,500 member Explorer Program, provided the following description of the video: “The first-person, point-of-view style is intended for teaching purposes and can provide clear instruction for fellows, as if they were standing in the room. Videos like these, initiated by voice command, may also be used for patient education. Live streaming of procedures using Glass’ hands-free, heads-up technology has the potential to revolutionize not only the way physicians learn, but also the way they assist. Operators can virtually collaborate with each other from across the world, sharing their experiences and advice while the procedure is taking place.”
Editor’s note: The patient’s informed consent was obtained prior to the procedure.
