As far as The paying for the heart monitor for an eligible Vet, Yes! the part about it working with other CO' monitors is my guess only. But I have worked in electronics for 40 years and thats my opinion!

Re: Monitor/ smart phone interface

I ordered the BS adapter today. That seems like the surest solution that I have seen yet. the 3 year contract may be problematical when it time to replace my CRT-D if the Doc wants something besides BS.

Re: Monitor/ smart phone interface

Yes, I have been following that. Not much there that will help me . It appears that that this gadget will directly connect the Latitude phone output to my existing cell phone. At any rate I just ordered it to try. Will report with the results.

Re: Monitor/ smart phone interface

There are plenty of people who are using their mobile number as their primary means of contact and opting to do away with a landline phone. However, cell phones don't always have the best signal in every part of the house, and the comfort of using regular desk telephones can't be beat. The Intellito...

Monitor/ smart phone interface

Been giving this subject a lot of thought lately as ATT is filing in Ky to eliminate landlines.
It would appear that some smart guy could develop a simple Blue tooth interface for this. :duh:
