Would a heart monitor readout be admissible evidence in a trial?

Asked by LostInParadise (28382points) August 11th, 2010

Suppose that someone wearing a heart monitor is suspected of a crime. The prosecution wants access to the readout of the monitor in order to establish a strong emotional reaction to a conversation that occurred at a known time. Is this privileged doctor-patient information?
