SEATTLE -

A trauma surgeon at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle is testing Google Glass in the operating room.

Dr. Heather Evans is one of 8,000 people selected by Google to explore uses for the device because of her interest in using it during operations and as a teaching tool.

It's like wearing eyeglasses with a display that gives users connections to the Internet where they can find information or stream video.

Evans told The Seattle Times she's excited by the potential but concerned with technical issues. She says it's almost impossible to use Google Glass while concentrating on a patient.
