While heart disease and cancer are the number one and two causes of death in the U.S., the third is likely less known by the public. It's preventable medical errors and they kill an estimated 400,000 people each year. For many families, simply not knowing what went wrong that cost their loved ones their lives is something that will haunt them.
There are many people who are in support of a movement that wants surgical suites and hospitals to record both audio and video of procedures. A surgeon out of Toronto believes this a good idea, too, and has developed a type of "black box" that will also record the physical data of the patient. He already has two U.S. hospitals that will test the system.
