At last a version of Qrisk for android! This is the primary prevention risk scoring system based on the desktop version of Qrisk2-2013 (Copyright © 2008-13 ClinRisk Ltd. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED).
It works out the risk of having a myocardial infarction or stroke, it gives the 1 to 10 year risk as well as the Qriskage (QRISKage™ is © 2010-13 ClinRisk Ltd). This scoring system has greater validity than the modified Framingham score, please see in in App references.
This App uses the same algorithm as the original Qrisk desktop version (and their i phone version,) it is produced using the code available as open source software which implements the QRISK2®-2012 scores, released under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence, version 3. Please take time to read this information in the 'about' menu.
It will therefore faithfully reproduce the same scores as the original.
Unfortunately the Townsend to Postcode table that the desk top version uses to quantify deprivation is not accessible to mobiles (this goes for the ClinRisk ltd's i phone version too) and so I have used a slider bar where one can estimate deprivation. It can be turned off if desired. Click the 'null' tick box to remove this. Market towns are going to lie from the mid line to the upper fifth, and inner city tower blocks be in the lower fifth for example. If the 'null' value is set then deprivation plays no part in the assessment, this means that the more deprived you are the score will be underestimated by a few percent, and likewise over estimate your risk , again by a few percentage points, if the patient is more privileged.
This is intended for use by all health care professionals involved in assessing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risk. It is a primary prevention tool only. It will be of particular use to general practitioners when completing the QoF (Quality and Outcomes Framework) when assessing CVD risk, whichever clinical system be it systemOne or Emis, as the data can be entered whilst viewing other screens. It is not ideal for patients to use this to assess their own risk of heart attack nor stroke.
For UK General Practitioners I have added a 'Qof Correction' button, this runs the score again but sets the BP to 150/90 for the patients aged 80 and more and to 140/90 for those 79 years of age and less. The reason being that there is a reasonable opinion that lowering a 78 year old's BP to 140/90 or less is not always a good idea. This button thus calculates the corrected risk of heart attack or stroke if their BP were at the lower level. The idea being it provides another source of evidence that exception reporting is perhaps the best option.
It is validated for use in the United Kingdom. However the algorithm is said to have some use internationally and can act as a guide in other westernized societies.
It should be noted that this App is a tool and all decisions about a patient's health are the responsibility of the medical practitioner making the decision. I cannot accept any responsibility for its use or misuse.
It calculates the following outcomes:
- Coronary heart disease (CHD)
- Myocardial infarction
- Cardiovascular disease (CVD)
- Death from coronary heart disease
- Death from cardiovascular disease
This application has been provided with the hope that it will be useful, but without warranty, implied or explicit, of fitness for a particular purpose. The author will not accept responsibility for anything. No applications can be good as your medic.
Its aim is to deliver information on the management of cardiovascular risk before noncardiac surgery.
There is also a practical protocol to assess whether a patient requires cardiac evaluation before noncardiac surgery.

Color deficiency is a common problem: totally 8% of men and 0.5% of women are suffering from some type of color vision deficiency. It is most often of genetic nature, but may also occur because of eye, nerve or brain damage or due to exposure to certain chemicals.
The Color Blindness Test is made with the best of intentions. The intuitive and flawless design allows you to navigate easily through the application. The voice guidance is provided during the test so that you don't need to move your mobile device near or far to read the instructions but instead you can hear the nice voice guiding you through different steps and actions. The voice can easily be muted and unmuted.
For each test you will be given colored pattern of dots to identify displayed numbers. The randomly picked test charts will make sure you don't have a chance to memorize the provided numbers as well as answer positions so easily if possible at all. This important feature will make sure you are never bored passing this test. Also when used in offices or universities the persons passing this test will never be able to fill correct answers just because they have good memorization skills.
At the end of the test results will be revealed to show whether the person has color weaknesses or not.
More details about color weaknesses, eye examination tests and trainings as well as other eye related topics can be found in our news.eyeexamtest.com blog.
The Color Blindness Test is continuously under improvement so your feedback is appreciated!

This application is not intended to replace optician's regular full examination. We recommend you get a full eye test after using it.
Created by a cardiology patient for cardiology patients, CathMaps+ was developed with input from numerous experts including Dr. Jack Stroh (MD, FACC, FACP, FSCAI), Dr. Jonathan Balkin, & Dr. David Meerkin to help save precious minutes in a cardiac emergency. The app provides tailored emergency tools in case of a follow-up incident such as a heart attack, allowing users to securely access, manage, & share their medical records with friends & family, and locate the nearest cath labs in many countries around the world.
THE CATHMAPS+ APP PERFORMS THE FOLLOWING FUNCTIONS:
• Dial Emergency Services: At the press of a button, CathMaps+ automatically identifies and dials the local emergency phone number wherever you are in the world. This functionality is especially important for travelers.
• Locate the Nearest Cath Labs: CathMaps+ provides directions to the closest Cath Lab location in most parts of the world through other apps like Google Maps & Waze, as well as contact details & other information for these facilities. It’s easy to find the nearest lab with CathMaps+.
• Store & Share Your Cardiac Medical History with Doctors: Upon arrival at a Cath Lab, it is vital that the medical personnel have access to your full medical history (cardiac and otherwise) to ensure more informed, personalized, and effective treatment. With CathMaps+, this information (type of stent, which artery it is implanted in, etc) is instantly available and easily shared upon arrival at a medical facility or in advance through email, so that precious time isn’t wasted trying to find important information. Your medical history can then be easily updated after each visit to a clinic or cardiologist, and our web site can provide more assistance in ease of uploading medical records.
• Share with Family Members: Often in the case of heart attacks or other cardiac events, patients are unable to perform life-saving functions on their own because of their heart issue. In such situations, a family member or friend may accompany you to the hospital. The CathMaps+ app allows you to share your medical records with a friend or family in advance, so they can share the information with doctors in an emergency situation. In this way, the doctors will know where stents have been inserted and when.
• Update Medical Records: You can easily update your medical records at any time by simply entering the details of recent appointments, medication changes, procedures like angiograms or an angioplasty, or other medical episodes. You can also scan or take a photo of important documents such as an EKG from your phone and upload them to the app for safekeeping in case of another cardiac event in the future.
CATHMAPS+ PROVIDES PEACE OF MIND
• Security & preparedness for cardiac patients, especially when traveling
• Loved ones will have access to your medical history if they are needed to help
• Doctors will have your most current and up-to-date medical records
• HIPAA compliant thus ensuring your medical history is secure
• Designed to be a vital, reliable resource in time of emergency
CATHMAPS+ CAN HELP SAVE LIVES IN AN EMERGENCY
• The *only* global map of Cath Lab facilities so that you can locate one in an emergency
• Supports immediate local emergency dialing in most countries around the world
• Allows users to access and share their medical records with a Cath Lab in advance via email, allowing better treatment by the cardiologist
CathMaps+ is available in English and Spanish, and additional languages should be released throughout 2014 to provide assistance for international patients seeking information on Cath Labs.
The app is now available on the Google Play Store for Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4 for $4.99.
CheapMeds was created by a young US physician who saw a willingness among his patients to take a greater role in the managment of their healthcare needs, but suffered from a lack of access to adequate resources to achieve time- and cost-savings. The purpose of this app is to enable healthcare consumers to find cheap, readily-available generic medications. Using the "$4 Meds" allows many consumers to bypass insurance companies all together.
This app contains a database of the $4 and other low-cost generic medications. These medications are available at pharmacies with a "$4 plan", such as Wal-Mart or Kroger. Other pharmacies may have a similar plan that may be more or less cost effective. In the future, more drugs and a more detailed pricing scheme will be implemented in this app.
This app does not endorse a specific commercial pharmacy, but does provide search capability for nearby pharmacies that provide the generic medications listed here.
La cohérence cardiaque rencontre un succès croissant auprès du grand public et des professionnels de santé. Préalablement appliquée en prévention cardio-vasculaire, elle est de plus en plus utilisée dans les programmes de gestion de la réponse émotionnelle, du stress et de l’anxiété.
Face aux sollicitations stressantes de la vie quotidienne, la cohérence cardiaque renforce l'adaptabilité du système physiologique d’autorégulation pour lutter contre les problèmes psychologiques et physiques, permettant ainsi à l’organisme de maintenir un meilleur équilibre intérieur.
ROLE DU SYSTEME NERVEUX AUTONOME (SNA)
Originaire du cerveau limbique, siège des émotions, le système nerveux autonome permet :
- le contrôle des principaux organes : yeux, cœur, poumons, estomac…
- l’homéostasie : régulation et maintien de l’équilibre et de la stabilité physiologique.
Le SNA est composé de 2 branches agissant de façon contraire comme une balance dynamique :
- le système nerveux sympathique : associé à l’action, il met l'organisme en état d'alerte et le prépare à l'activité.
- le système nerveux parasympathique : associé au repos, il ralentit les fonctions de l’organisme et conserve l’énergie.
Un SNA flexible permet à l’organisme de maintenir l’homéostasie, face aux sollicitations stressantes externes (environnement) et internes (émotions, douleur…). A l’inverse, le manque de flexibilité expose à différentes manifestations somatiques et psychologiques.
Les études cliniques récentes soulignent qu’un SNA rigide s’explique principalement par un moindre tonus du système nerveux parasympathique, aussi appelé tonus vagal.
DIMINUTION DU TONUS VAGAL ET PATHOLOGIES
Ces études montrent une diminution significative du tonus vagal chez les personnes :
- diabétiques, hypertendues, asthmatiques ou encore atteintes de maladies inflammatoires ou douloureuses chroniques ;
- stressées ou présentant une anxiété chronique, une anxiété généralisée, des crises de panique ou un état de stress post traumatique.
Différents mécanismes déclencheurs, aujourd’hui mieux connus, sont en cause : des phénomènes de régulation réflexe entre la fréquence cardiaque, la respiration et la tension artérielle ainsi que des mécanismes neurobiologiques du cerveau liés au stress et aux émotions.
AUGMENTATION DU TONUS VAGAL
Il existe une façon simple et accessible à tous pour agir sur le tonus vagal : la respiration.
L’entraînement régulier au contrôle respiratoire permet en effet d’optimiser ce système réflexe - aussi appelé baroréflexe - reliant la fréquence cardiaque, la respiration et la tension artérielle.
En cas de diminution ou d’augmentation de la tension artérielle, les récepteurs de nos vaisseaux sanguins déclenchent par l’intermédiaire du SNA une accélération ou une diminution de la fréquence cardiaque.
Ce phénomène physiologique régulateur peut être optimisé en respirant à une fréquence de 6 cycles par minute (cpm) : inspiration=4,5 secondes et expiration=5,5 secondes.
Cette respiration lente, régulière et guidée, permet de mettre en résonance les variations dues à la respiration avec les variations dues à l’activité baroréflexe, renforçant ainsi le tonus vagal et maximisant l’adaptabilité du SNA.
Cet état de résonance est appelé cohérence cardiaque.
Le travail de cohérence cardiaque augmente le tonus vagal et renforce la flexibilité du SNA, permettant ainsi à l'organisme de maintenir une meilleure homéostasie et de mieux lutter contre les problèmes psychologiques, physiques et psychosomatiques.
La bibliographie scientifique récente nous en démontre tout l’intérêt pour :
- mieux adapter la réponse émotionnelle face au stress
- prévenir les risques d’infarctus
- augmenter les capacités pulmonaires
- diminuer les troubles respiratoires
- soulager la fibromyalgie
- réduire les douleurs physiques perçues
- améliorer les états dépressifs et l’anxiété
- diminuer l’hypertension artérielle
By using Smartphone's camera and flash, this app measures heart rate,stress level and autonomic nerve balance. This app will help you managing stress efficiently.
(1) Heart rate measurement in real-time
-Minimum/Maximum/Average heart rate measurement
(2) Stress measurement
-HRV(heart rate variation) graph display
-Automatic nerve balance result
-Physical/mental stress level
-Accumulated data display
2) Application use
-By measuring heart rate,autonomic nerve balance and stress level by using a smart phone, user can efficiently manage stress frequently.
-It is a smart health care and mobile health care system, anywhere at any time you can check the status of your stress simply.
3) Method of measurement and principle.
-Measurement by using one of the PPG (Photoplethysmography) methods.
There are two types of pressure, systolic and diastolic at the heart, therefore the peripheral vascular, amount of blood flow, and volume of blood vessel changes. StressViewer measures the amount of penetration of light by using the camera image that shows the pattern of heart beat.
The smart phone’s flash light will be exposed at the end of the user’s finger and the amount of blood flow can be measured because when the heartbeat occurs, the amount of blood flow in the peripheral blood vessel changes which is detected by camera on smart phone.
-Only works at Smartphone camera with a built-in flash
-Do not shake finger during measuring
-Do not press the camera and flash too hard
-This application is not for professional medical diagnosis
5) Introduction of Du-Sung Technology Corporation and guide on released app.
-Du-Sung Technology have developed and manufactured the wireless heart rate monitor, moreover, we have earned the respect in accuracy and quality of products through many years of knowhow in the field of wireless heart rate monitor.
Currently we have anounced two apps which are “StressViewer,” and “CardioPlanner.”
“StressViewer” is very easy-to-use app since it measures the current stress rate without any other instruments, but with only smart phone with a built-in flash camera.
And the app, “CardioPlanner” is the chest-belt typed wireless heart rate monitor that can be connected with smart phone by bluetooth to measure, so user can obtain more accurate workout data.
“CardioPlanner” accurately measures heart rate, number of step, exercise route, exercise distance, consumed calories, measurement of stress, etc, and the result can be uploaded to Web, so this app will help users to exercise systematically.
