Military medics are using iPAQ Pocket PCs when treating victims of Hurricane Katrina.

According to Government Computer News, these handhelds will be running the Battlefield Medical Information System-Tactical (BMIS-T), which will give the medics access to patient records and potential treatments.

It allows the medics to record the results of every session they have with a patient, and includes dental records and current medication information.

Hurricane Relief BMIS-T was developed by the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center, a part of the Army Research and Material Command in Fort Detrick, MD.

More information on BMIS-T is available here.
