Cough into your cell phone, get a diagnosis
Software could help analyze whether infection is viral or bacterial

Coughing into your cell phone could soon save you a trip to the doctor's office.

New research by American and Australian scientists aims to diagnose cold, flu, pneumonia or other respiratory diseases by analyzing coughs with software.

The research could save patients across the world a trip to the doctor's office. Instead, they could simply cough into their cell phone and receive a diagnosis a few seconds later.


Who'd a thunk it?

Sounds pretty reasonable, but I would be cautious about being misdiagnosed.

I also wonder who would take responsibility for giving out necessary prescriptions.

I know, it is still in the infancy stage. But one thing is for sure, doctor visit or not, we are still going to pay.
