Skip the ER for potential heart attacks and find a spectroscopist instead

This is a neat and unusal use for mid-IR spectrscopy: differentiation between heart attacks and simple chest pain. Given the ubiquity of IR machines and the ease with which anyone can run one, this could be an important new find.

Now if I can just get the IR guys at work here to start running this test, we could be billing the insurance companies for some big bucks!
