iPhone Saves Life: Surgeon Performs Surgery with SMS Assistance

iPhone Saves Life: Surgeon Performs Surgery with SMS Assistance

The following events actually happened recently and they go to prove the utility of any cell phone and particularly of any smartphone. A British surgeon was a volunteer with the French medical charity Medicin Sans Frontieres. David Nott found a boy in Africa who needed to have it’s gangrenous arm amputated. That’s when he asked for assistance from a London surgeon, Meirion Thomas.

Thomas sent a 10-step guide via SMS to perform surgery on the boy and eventually that saved a life.

Thomas’s response was a cool 10-step guide to performing surgery on the boy to remove his arm along with collar bone and shoulder blade. Armed with that and a wish of good luck from his friend, Nott just “got on with it.”

He ended up saving the boy’s life. An iPhone saved a life and the knowledge behind that.

Well first off the iPhone did not save the boys life it was the doctor who used the iPhone. I'm sure every phone has SMS, so its not that that big of a deal that it happens to be the "iPhone".
