Canadian man gets remote monitor

73 year old George Woods has become the first man in Canada to be fitted with a remote heart monitor. He received the new wireless defibrillator last week at the Hospital in Newmarket.

The tiny device continuously tests monitors his heart and alerts medical staff to any changes or potential problems.

His nurse says that with this patient monitor, Mr Woods would only need to go to the hospital if the transmitted reports show a problem that can't be fixed remotely.
