OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–eMurmur today announced the release of eMurmur Heartpedia, an app designed to help patients, parents and medical professionals better understand heart defects through anatomically-correct 3D models and corresponding heart and murmur sound recordings for each defect. eMurmur Heartpedia is a major upgrade to the original Heartpedia app from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre which has been downloaded over 100,000 times since its release in 2014.
“Congenital heart defects can be difficult to visualize, understand, and explain. Supplying easy-to-understand information on heart defects and established surgical repair strategies can result in improved comprehensive care for the patient,” says Peace Madueme, MD MS FAAP FACC FASE at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando. “eMurmur Heartpedia is unique in that it provides validated patient heart sounds, 3D cardiac models and surgical videos in an easy to use app that is accessible and understandable by anyone.”
“The rich visual and audio heart information in eMurmur Heartpedia make it much easier to understand heart defects, which we expect will be invaluable to families, healthcare professionals, medical and nursing schools.” says Andreas Schriefl, founder and CEO of eMurmur.
eMurmur Heartpedia is a downloadable app that runs on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet, and is available from both the IOS and Android app stores.
