(WKBW/ABC) It seems you can do anything with your iPhone these days, and now apparently, you can save a life.

An Oklahoma doctor has turned his iPhone into an "EKG".

Dr. David Albert has developed a revolutionary device that looks just like a cell phone case, but when snapped onto your iPhone, it turns into a working EKG.

Two silver electrodes on the back allows the phone to monitor someone else's or your own electrocardiogram.

Dr. Albert revealed the 'iPhone EKG" to the world on YouTube last week.

He's had more than 100 thousand views and hundreds of emails.

He hopes to have it on the market by April. The cost is expected to be under $100.
