    Patients will attach this patch to their arm, and it will wirelessly transmit blood pressure, heart rate and blood oxygen levels to a handheld. (The data can also be transmitted by wire.) The handheld, in turn, will transmit the data to a doctor. The device is a prototype now, but it may go on the market next year.
