 Google Glass Now Helping Doctors Communicate During Emergencies

Google Glass is helping Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics communicate with ease with doctors during emergencies, although the eye wearable device did not take off as it was projected to be.

The augmented-reality headset is being used by paramedics and EMTs assessing patients and them consult with surgeons and doctors at the hospital in real time, Popular Science reported.

"During disasters, emergency rooms typically get overwhelmed. So when truly injured patients show up later, we have nowhere to put them," said Peter Chai, emergency medical physician at the University of Massachusetts' Medical School (UMMS).

UMMS is set to organise a drill this fall with first responders wearing Google Glass to see if it improves emergency assessment. The university will also deploy a drone equipped with heat sensors to help find patients and determine which ones need the most urgent attention.

Stanford University is also using Google Glass to help kids with autism. The university's Autism Glass Project provides families with facial recognition software that helps interpret facial expressions.
