How Google Glass is changing medical education
Medical education, from traditional medical school to the field training of paramedics, is about to fall under the influence of Google Glass. Today, high-tech training simulation is mainstream. For example, computer driven mannequins can be programmed to simulate an extensive array of cardiac arrhythmias from ventricular fibrillation to atrial flutter — all important clinical conditions, but with greatly varying treatment scenarios. And making a "training emergency" as real as possible helps improved what happens in the real world. But now, Google Glass is being tested as a new layer of technology that makes education more realistic and potentially more effective.
