Ham radio for the doctors

Doctors can organise emergency medical nets to provide on-the-air help to a person in medical distress. Relaying of the 'electrocardiogram' of a patient from a moving ambulence in a remote area to a distant hospital for diagnosis and proper medical advice was also once demonstrated by the UK hams using computer interfaced radio via the ham radio artificial satellites
( In the near future ham radio operators around the world will be having their own home-made geo-stationary satellites. It will be a dream-come-true for the most reliable long distance point to point ham radio communication! ).
