I assumed this app would have as many structures identified as an average anatomy atlas. It does not.
I bought this app hoping it would prove useful for patient education. Its essentially as useless as a wall chart for explaining complex procedures. Save your money
Its not quite what I wanted, nor worth the money especially since you have to pay an extra 10$ to get more animations. I think the disease state videos are too simple to really gain an understanding of whats going on. It would be a great tool to explain the disease states to patients, but as a medical professional in training its not nearly enough detail. I wish that you could play videos in slow motion so that you could coordinate the abnormal heart rythems to the EKG. With that said, it would be extremely helpful for leaning anatomy.
Don't buy if you have a track pad. I should had bought it for my iPad.
Overall this application is great. It showed more than I expected. PROS: -Extensive labeling of individual parts -Easy to use layout (including quiz section) -Helpful animations (angiogram + ballon angioplasty was especially great) -Great as a teaching tool CONS: -While I know the company needs to make money, I would hope for a couple more animations. Possibly some with heart murmur sounds. -Needs more freedom to explore. More of a 3d render that allows rotation and zoom for more than just the outside of the heart. -I would also like to see the pulmonary semilunar valve in the cross section. Overall, it is a great tool to use in studying the heart. With that I agree that it would do very well for patient education as well.
This is an AWESOME APP!! I'm going to get all of them! The animation and the grapic work takes all the guessing out of the organ your studying! You have to TRY hard NOT to learn with this APP!
I found the app easy to navigate and the clean graphics easily understood. My main purpose was to see how it might compare to other animal hearts for teaching veterinary medicine to animal technicians. The animations translate close enough to imagine similar medical situations in several other species. I think my students gained a better understanding of the heart and its' functions on a basic level.
Not designed for the new track pad. Would have been nice to know before I spent $20.00! I am sure if i owned a mouse the app would work fine. For now it is useless to me.
