ViScope scouts out for heart attacks

You can’t really tell when is the next time you will be meeting Mr. Heart Attack, but at least we now have a device that might be able to do just that. The ViScope instrument is one nifty device, capable of detecting heart noises that signal an impending attack so that the heart attack candidate would be able to alert his/her medical doctor as soon as possible. The ViScope us currently undergoing trials, with an FDA approval pending. In principle, the ViScope works pretty much the same way fishermen use sonar waves to locate a school of fish – by sending and receiving low-voltage radio waves to and from the heart. In the meantime, do make sure you get your daily dose of vitamins, exercise at least three times a week, eat healthily, and laugh a whole lot more.
