PubMed RSS feeds are now live

"PubMed RSS is now live. After doing a PubMed search, click on the drop down menu for "send to" and RSS is now one of the options. The feature allows you to specify a name for the feed and number of items to include."
(via NodalPoint.org)

This could be the perfect way to follow the new developments in a narrow field, or to look for updated answers to a specific clinical question.

You can read the RSS feeds in the online aggregator Bloglines, in the browser itself (Opera 8.0) or in a stand-alone RSS reader.

By the way, if you have a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth enabled PDA, the mobile Bloglines is a great application.

Update:
RSS Feeds are now featured on the front page of Pubmed.
