Subject: BodyKom a joke?

"The new system, which is called BodyKom, connects
wirelessly to sensors on the patient. If dangerous
changes are detected in the patient's body, the
hospital or health care services are automatically
alerted over a secure mobile network connection"

This is a joke. A while back I collapsed near a hospital in critical 
condition. It took six calls to 911 before the medics responded. When they 
finally turned up one stuck his boot in my face and asked: "What are you 
doing on the ground?" When a doctor on the scene told them I was critical. 
They told me; "Get in the ambulance!". No help given. At the hospital I 
nearly died because the ER wanted to see the people with colds and flue that 
have been there for a long time first. TV and movies are not real life.
