Yvorne, Switzerland – Designed to develop and improve the electrocardiogram reading skills of medical professionals, an updated version of The ECG Collection 1.1 is now available for iPad and iPhone. Created by Goyman SA, The ECG Collection app is currently on sale for $3.99 USD and can be purchased through the iTunes App Store.
Developed more than 100 years ago, the electrocardiogram remains an important non-invasive tool for diagnosing abnormal heart rhythms and determining the effects of pacemakers and drug therapies. Goyman SA created The ECG Collection app to assist medical professionals who need to continually refine the potentially life-saving skill of reading ECG tracings.
“Because they are responsible for people’s lives, medical students as well as trained practitioners and cardiologists must hone their ECG reading skills,” said Nicolas Goy, chief executive officer of Goyman SA. “The ECG Collection app allows them to do so at their own pace, on their own schedule and using popular mobile devices.”
With 63 new ECG tracings, The ECG Collection now contains 213 tracings to explore. Designed for interactivity, the tracings have special zones allowing the user to spotlight the most significant features of each. Clear and easily read, each tracing can be exported as a high-quality PDF to be printed or emailed for further study.
The tracings vary in level of difficulty, from very simple to extremely complex, in order to create a valuable training experience for medical professionals whether they are just beginning their careers or have years of experience. As an example, tracings in The ECG Collection include conditions and situations commonly seen by medical professionals such as conduction abnormalities, hypertrophy, myocardial infarction and pacemakers. Plus, new traces ranging in difficulty will be added regularly to the app.
Healthcare professionals will find the detailed descriptions, diagnoses and comments included with the tracings in The ECG Collection helpful for understanding a tracing’s finer points. Noting all the parts of the cardiac cycle, from P-wave to T-wave, and various abnormal waves, a systematic interpretation of each tracing is offered.
Users can depend upon the lessons provided because the tracings in The ECG Collection and their accompanying descriptions, diagnoses and comments have been interpreted and reviewed by four expert cardiologists. Making valuable electrocardiogram training available to as many medical professionals as possible, The ECG Collection app offers information in English, French and German.
“With tracings covering all of the most important aspects of electrocardiography, The ECG Collection provides medical professionals with the information and practice they need to be their best,” said Goy.
