Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is offering Heartpedia, a free, interactive, 3-D app for iPhones, iPads, and Android Devices, in an effort to clearly describe the complex workings of the heart.
The app depicts anatomically correct pictures.
It includes an interactive model of a normal heart and also, interactive models of defects and their associated repairs, including Tetralogy of Fallot, Coarctation of the Aorta, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Transposition of the Great Arteries, Ventricular Septal Defect, Patent Ductus Arteriosus, and Atrioventricular Septal Defect.
Users can pan, rotate, zoom; toggle between normal, defect, and repair views; view exterior and various interior heart planes and slices; and see video animation accompanied by audio descriptions of the different aspects.
