Heart beat monitor using android

I just had this idea of using Android (a linux derivative) to monitor heart rates of patients with a history of cardiac problems. There are plenty apps around that monitor heart rates, but none for people that require medical attention when their heart rate drops below a certain level for more than, say, a minute. The app could automatically alert the nearest medical staff when the individual is incapacitated. While smart phones make our lives easier, soon they will also be utilised in areas where they can save lives.
