Braunwald's Heart Disease Textbook Available for iPad, iPhone

August 8, 2011 — Elsevier, provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced its Braunwald's Heart Disease Practice Guides App for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch is now available on the App Store.

The app includes content from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, Ninth Edition, and provides the most up-to-date, evidence-based cardiology clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA).

The app provides access to the most useful, clinically actionable and evidence-based cardiology clinical practice guidelines today. The joint cardiovascular practice guidelines of the ACC and the AHA have become important documents for guiding cardiology practice and establishing benchmarks for quality of care.

In each edition, the global clinical textbook of cardiology, authors and editors summarize all the latest ACC/AHA practice guidelines and transform them into clinically actionable points presented in an easily accessible, bulleted format.

For the first time the guidelines have been streamlined for mobile presentation and are available for download by cardiologists and all related healthcare professionals who want mobile access to this clinically actionable information in a high-yield, bulleted format.

"We wanted to provide cardiologists and healthcare professionals the ability to have the most up-to-date information available right at their fingertips," said Eugene Braunwald, M.D., founding editor and online editor of Braunwald's Heart Disease. "This app will give clinicians and professionals anytime, anywhere access to this important information so they can continue to provide the best quality of care possible for their patients."

The new app has several features, including:

- Content from the brand-new, ninth edition of Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine;  

- Content and cases based on the latest published evidence;  

- Clinically actionable points presented in an easily digested, bulleted format;     

- Easy navigation, searching and browsing options.

Edited by Robert Bonow, M.D.; Douglas Mann, M.D.; Douglas Zipes, M.D.; and Peter Libby, M.D., the reference applies the most recent knowledge in molecular biology and genetics, imaging, pharmacology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and more.

Additionally, the new edition features online content, including new dynamic cardiac imaging videos, heart sound recordings, and podcasts.
