Surgeons use Google Glass to live stream operation
Washington: Google Glass has recently been used to assist surgeons and medical students at the Ohio State University, and has been said to give an experience to surgeons that they never had before.
According to ABC News, Christopher Kaeding, an orthopaedic surgeon at OSU, accepted the wearable computer for a standard surgical procedure, repairing a torn ACL.
In this particular procedure, Glass`s sole aim was to allow Kaeding to join a Google Hangout, Google`s video conferencing service, the report said.
However, an associate professor at John Hopkins Medical Institute said that surgery had always been linked to technology but in many cases, having access to all of these things might not help the patient even an iota.
Surgeons using the device during the operation even kept an extra battery with them, just in case the procedure took long, the report added.
