Wireless control of drug delivery

MicroChips has doled out an innovation in next generation drug delivery. This involves the sensory control of drug release into the human body. This is indeed good news for several types of patients...

Imagine, a sensor picks up you are having a myocardial infarction, or simply put, a heart attack. Aspirin and a cocktail of drugs sitting at a convenient location jump through your blood system and lo! its all gone. In the meanwhile, adding my own bit, your personal physician also gets a neat little report of what happened!

You are diabetic and need insulin. You never have to worry about remembering to take a shot again! And unlike the MiniMed pumps, you don't have to carry something very painful on the outside.

Unfortunately, you have fallen victim to epilepsy. Imagine the power of wireless control and delivery!!!

These are only a few among several hundreds of crucial, life saving possibilities that exist. It would be no surprise or wonder, when the cliche "pathbreaking" attaches itself to the exhiliarated postulation on this new technology!!!
