Dr. Vincent E. Friedwald M.D. Dr. Friedwald's initial medical research was in the development of echocardiography, which was the basis for his writing The Textbook of Echocardiography, and computer-based analysis of cardiac monitoring systems, including electrocardiography, exercise testing, and vectorcardinography. In recent years he has focused on studies of the evolutionary role of informational media and the impact of electronic media on human behavior; electronic publishing; voice recognition technology medical applications; and medication adherence by patients. Dr. Friedwald has faculty appointments at the University of Notre Dame (Research Professor, College of Science and Senior Research Fellow in Ethics) and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston (Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine). He is Assistant Editor of the American Journal of Cardiology. Since February, 2002, Dr. Friedwald has been Medical Director of Argus1, a Web-based program for the early detection of biological and chemical attack and other naturally-occuring and accidental public health threats. Argus1 is used for point-of-care decision support by physicians' assistants, nurses, first responders (police, fire, emergency medical specialists) in hospital emergency departments, medical clinics, school clinics, health departments, and other institutions and agencies responsible for individual and community health.
