Yes www.airstriptech.com “has an app for that”. Airstrip OB delivers the expectant mother’s vital signs to the doctor’s iPhone no matter where he or she is. This really helps to alleviate anxiety when the doctor cannot be with the expectant parents. According to Dr. Tomás Marimón, obstetrician/gynecologist affiliated with Kendall Regional Medical Center in Miami, Florida, “If I have a patient in active labor, I am monitoring her via my mobile phone every 15 or 20 minutes. The permanent monitoring, for example, of the patient’s frequency and intensity of the contractions as well as nursing notes, allows me to predict certain situations that may arise and proceed accordingly. It’s fantastic”. You can read the whole story here: http://hcaeastflorida.ballywhointeractive.com/tag/airstrip-ob/
