"During disasters, emergency rooms typically get overwhelmed. So when truly injured patients show up later, we have nowhere to put them," said Peter Chai, emergency medical physician at the University of Massachusetts' Medical School (UMMS).

UMMS is set to organise a drill this fall with first responders wearing Google Glass to see if it improves emergency assessment.
