The Heart App on a mission to reduce fatalities due to heart diseases.

The Heart App 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. This can also be of use to paramedical staff operating in field.
With the help of this app one can predict the future risk of heart attack and stroke by simply providing the reading of blood pressure, history of diabetes and smoking.

During a heart attack every second is crucial as the damage to heart is time dependent. The longer one takes since the beginning of a heart attack to getting treatment, the longer are heart muscles deprived of oxygen and more is the damage to heart. Damaged muscles are ineffective in pumping blood and can lead to heart failure. Death of heart muscles can also lead to electrical instability producing abnormal heart beats or arrhythmias which can cause sudden death.

A majority of patients get some warning symptoms before a full-blown heart attack, and if they are provided appropriate treatment in time, heart attack can even be avoided or aborted. It is these avoidable fatalities that we hope to stop with the help of the heart app. 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 would not only improve people’s awareness about heart attacks but also provide them with a ready reference in their time of need.

The Heart App when utilized by non medical personnel i.e. the general population enables them to recognize their heart problem early and seek medical attention instead of ignoring it. When used by paramedical staff, The Heart App would help quick identification of patients with possible heart attack or angina and initiation of treatment. In a Casualty setting, The Heart App can help in triaging the patients, more efficient utilization of resources and enable early call to the cardiologist on duty.

This app is meant solely for the welfare of common people but we cannot do it without your help. We request you to share The Heart App with your family & friends, and contribute to our small effort of fighting heart diseases which claim millions of innocent lives.

Please note that The Heart App, by no means, intends to replace the clinical judgement of a doctor; rather its main purpose is to educate people, prevent them from ignoring an emergency and enable seeking early treatment.
