5 Top Cardiology Apps II

June 21, 2016

Get a top-line look at 5 mobile applications specifically for cardiologists that offer learning, teaching, and patient communication at unique levels of detail.

The following heart disease apps were chosen based on their potential value, simplicity/ease of use, and topical content. The app on ECG interpretation is designed to help enhance skills in reading ECGs and in recognizing specific abnormalities. A heart failure app allows active surveillance of and communication with patients recovering from HF events. Two apps are excellent teaching tools for physician and patient alike and another offers access to all things ACS in a hand-held device. Also included is an educational app that “gameifies” surgery, because specialists and trainees in cardiovascular medicine need some downtime, too.

The apps are the author’s choice.
