The Heart App(c) on a mission to reduce fatalities due to heart diseases.
The Heart App(c) aims to help people find out if they are at risk of, or are developing a heart attack based on some questions regarding their seemingly serious or not so serious chest complaints. These questions try to mimic the sequential procedure that heart-specialists follow while diagnosing a patient. The Heart App(c) can also be of use to paramedical staff operating in field.
A majority of patients get some warning symptoms before a full-blown heart attack occurs, and if they are provided appropriate treatment in time, heart attack can even be avoided! It is these avoidable fatalities that we hope to stop with the help of the heart app(c). A critical step in this direction is the information about heart attacks and coronary artery disease packed in the app in practical and easy to read compartments. The Heart App(c) would not only improves people's awareness but also provide them a ready reference in their time of need.
Ample amount of research categorically points out that mortality and morbidity due to heart attack can be substantially prevented by two key methods- awareness and timely-treatment. Of the two key factors, timely treatment is a more concrete factor and if we could somehow equip people with accurate information via a pervasive medium then millions of lives can be saved. Probably The Heart App(c) can be of help here
