Futuristic plaster to kill off bedside nursing.

The humble sticking plaster used to be for little more than keeping wounds clean and dry.

But within weeks NHS patients will be ‘patched up’ with a futuristic version of the plaster that can monitor heart rate, breathing patterns and body temperature.

The device streams these statistics to nurses’ computers and mobile phones over a wi-fi network.

Doctors say the disposable £35 patches, which send staff ‘beep’ alerts if they detect something wrong, will save hundreds of lives a year – and the NHS millions.:cool:
