LUC Montagnier, Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine, 2008, says that "Prevention is the medicine of the future".
In fact, it is known as a disease known since time, is half cured.
Prevention(Profilaxis), the simplest and cheapest method of treatment.
To make the "Prevention and Control of Health" must still some tools:
so this app was born from the need to provide solutions, modern and cheap.
The timing is very appropriate, because so many people have a smartphone, and in terms of price, they are now accessible to more and more people.

Choice of language and of cholesterol an metric units
By selecting the gear icon you can change the language (English or Spanish), the units of cholesterol (mmol/l or mg/dl), and the metric units (decimal or imperial cm in feet and inches)
Initial calculation of individual risk
It is very easy to use. By entering in six different criteria about the individual and selecting the option “calculate,” the approximate risk of developing significant cardiovascular diseases in the next 10 years is calculated (myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, stroke).
It is considered low risk to show an incidence rate less than 10% in 10 years, or less than 1% a year. Another way to interpret these results is that 1 out of 100 people in this situation is at risk each year; 10 people in a decade. On the other extreme, very high risk would be more than 40% in the next 10 years, indicating that of 100 people, 4 will suffer from cardiovascular disease per year, and 40 will show signs in the next 10 years; almost 1 out of 2.
The calculator is more precise when cholesterol levels are introduced, however it allows for calculation without this number- if it is not available.
What would happen if...
Once the risk estimate is obtained, it evaluates different ways that it can be modified by correcting factors such as tobacco use, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. It is considered ideal not to smoke, to have blood pressure lower than 140/90 and cholesterol levels under 200. Through this calculation, the users can see how quitting smoking lowers their risk by half, or that by changing any one of those 3 factors the estimated risk shifts from very high to very low, demonstrating how one can influence their outcome. Age and sex cannot be modified, and although diabetes is entered in as part of the analysis, it is not based on blood sugar levels or other criteria.
Validation of this application
We created an algorithm that replicates the use of the classic color charts. The validation process took place in different phases. For the current version, 100 random cases were independently compiled and classified independently by a group of doctors and technicians, using the calculator and the form. Next, the discrepancies were analyzed. Of the 100 cases, total concordance was found after correcting a typing error in the calculator and 4 classification errors in the color chart. This gives us the certainty that the algorithm reflects the exact use of the classic charts and facilitates the estimation of risk and the eventual benefits of making improvement. Nevertheless, we welcome any detection of unexpected errors.

When a child is in the hospital, parents can be overwhelmed by nurses and doctors rushing around, speaking medical jargon. Sometimes health care professionals think they are clearly communicating, but don’t check to make sure you understand them. One way you can be sure you understand is if you are able to teach back their information in your own words. Our Journey™ in the Hospital app is designed to:
- Be used from the time of admission, to help with conversations between families and the health care team while the child is in the hospital.
- Help parents identify what they need to know before taking their child home safely.
- Give parents a safe way to admit what they don’t know or understand, and ask questions.
- Cue families on what they need to teach back or demonstrate for their nurse or doctor. This gives the health care professional a chance to confirm information and skills and correct any misunderstandings.
- Help families feel confident that they can safely care for their child at home after discharge from the hospital, know the signs of possible problems, and know how to respond.
