Harvi App

This first of its kind iPad app is an interactive simulation-based textbook of cardiovascular physiology and hemodynamics. The textbook is divided into 4 parts and will cover a full range of topics relevant to the understanding of hemodynamics in health and disease. This app includes Part 1: Basic Physiological Concepts, and covers topics including the cardiac cycle, pressure-volume relations, preload, afterload, contractility, lusitropy and ventricular-vascular coupling. Parts II, III and IV will cover advanced physiological concepts, pathophysiology, disease states and therapeutics and mechanical circulatory support.┬áThe full simulation is available from any place in the app, simply by rotating iPad into a landscape orientation. The simulation, linked with end-of-chapter questions and problem sets allow for a flexible “learn-by-doing” environment for experimentation and discovery.
