AnginaControl is a smartphone application for patients suffering from angina.
Angina usually is a symptom of coronary heart disease (CHD). Angina is a pain or discomfort in the chest. It often has a squeezing or pressure-like feel. This discomfort can also be felt in the shoulders, arms, neck, jaws, or back. Anginal pain usually lasts for no more than 2-10 minutes. It is relieved by rest or nitroglycerin.
AnginaControl is an easy-to-use tool designed to help patients quantify their angina attacks. Patients will be able to record angina attacks by logging them and filling in the conditions associated with their onset (at rest or during effort) and whether or not nitroglycerin was required for relief.
The application’s reporting function will enable doctors to follow the evolution of their patients’ angina attacks over time. For this purpose, AnginaControl displays the data by week, month, or year, in graphs showing:
• The total number of angina attacks per day in weekly reports and per week in monthly and yearly reports
• The circumstances leading to the angina attacks: at rest or during effort
• Nitroglycerin consumption per day in weekly reports and per week in monthly and yearly reports
