LOS ANGELES, October 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

MedTech Cardio 2012 (http://www.medtechcardio.com) is the only industry forum focused on cardiovascular device design and manufacturing. The conference takes place over two days on October 30 and 31, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, alongside the MD&M Minneapolis exposition for medical devices.

MedTech Cardio 2012 is proud to host Dr. Dave Albert, a dynamic and inspirational speaker that was featured at his hometown TEDx conference TEDxOKC 2011. Dr. Albert's talk at MedTech Cardio 2012 will explore the consumerization of medical devices and how advances in mobile technology can expand the reach and the diagnostic capabilities of cardiologists and improve treatment for cardiovascular diseases.

In an exclusive interview with Brian Buntz, MD+DI Editor-at-large and Conference Chair of MedTech Cardio 2012, Dr. Albert shares his thoughts on the paradigm shift happening in cardiology. At the MedTech Cardio 2012 Conference, he will explore in depth the implications of the consumerization of cardiovascular devices and how medtech developers can capitalize on this emerging trend.

Dr. Dave Albert is a pioneer in mobile technology for medical devices. He was one of the inventors of the AliveCor Heart Monitor for the iPhone® 4 / 4S, that became a global sensation via a 4-minute Youtube video leading up to the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show. Among the first test-drivers of the AliveCor Heart Monitor is the world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Eric Topol (seevideo). Dr. Albert left GE in 2004 as Chief Scientist of GE Cardiology to disrupt several new markets and is now a founder of InnoAlarm, Lifetone and AliveCor. As a physician, inventor, and serial entrepreneur, he has developed medical and other life-saving technologies and products over the last 30 years.
