The hospital of Croydon showed how the iPhone could be used in medicine. One of the doctors used its iPhone as a torch during a complicated miscarriage procedure. The reason for this emergency was the light – the doctor asked the nurse to make a torch light with the iPhone. To make the things even more complicated, the nurse was not familiar with the iPhone commands and the procedure was painful for the patient. The director of the hospital is currently investigating the case.
It is not the first time of iPhone use in medical practice. Even more, the University of Leeds issued iPhones to the students, copying a trend at medical schools in the United States. Other abilities of the iPhones include running blood tests and identifying the period of optimal fertility.
