The Cardiology pocket app by Börm Bruckmeier Publishing aims to provide today’s busy clinicians with an overview of the current approaches to diagnosing and treating heart and cardiovascular disease, in a concise and highly accessible format. This comprehensive guide covers the major heart conditions most often seen in clinical practice, as well as other important cardiovascular topics such as hypertension, diseases of large vessels, and thromboembolic disease.
The content of the Cardiology pocket app is presented using a new, innovative user interface (UI) that is elegant, intuitive and simple to use. Features include a unique and highly customizable UI design, gesture-based navigation, bookmarking and annotation support, indexed and full text searching, support for SD card backups, and numerous interactive components such as medical calculators for important cardiology formulas and scores.
