Wired for Sound

I am in for an annoying month. Yesterday, I had to go to Martinez hospital to get a heart monitor. I'll be wearing it for a month. When I feel my heart beating irregularly, rapidly, or feel pain, I have to push a button to record it. The monitor records the whole time I have it on, anyway. After I have recorded episodes, I call a toll free number in Florida, speak to a real live person and give info on what I was feeling at the time and what I was doing, then lay the phone receiver on the desk, place the monitor in front of it and push a different button. It transmits a high pitched sound to Florida to be saved in my file for the month.

Technology - isn't it great?
