Previously we are talked about Anatomy app for your iDevices. Because it is a most basic subject for every medical students for beginning their Medical carrier. Here today I am going to introduce an Android app that totally based on human heart Anatomy. Instant Anatomy Heart Lecture by Robert Whitaker is a free, concise application that serves as an excellent review or a precursor to more rigorous studies on heart anatomy.
In his Instant Anatomy Heart Lecture, Dr. Whitaker breaks down heart anatomy into a few subdivisions: the heart’s orientation in the chest, the pericardium, the chambers, the heart’s conduction system, coronary artery anatomy, and venous drainage. There are 12 slides in total for this lecture, though the right atrium slide is duplicated to discuss conduction system anatomy. The entire thing takes about 17 minutes to listen to, and the listener can pause and resume the lecture, advance slides, and zoom in on the pictures and text contained within the slides.
However, once you navigate to a different slide other than the one you were on, the lecture starts at a set point for the new slide. This means that you cannot look back or forward to a slide without losing your spot in Dr. Whitaker’s narration. The lecture is well structured and well presented, with Dr. Whitaker speaking clearly throughout its entirety. Health professionals would benefit the most from this app, as the medical jargon and detailed anatomical descriptions surpass what is needed by most patients to understand a heart condition or its anatomy.
This app is definitely worth the price (free!), even if you listen only once to refresh yourself on basic heart anatomy. It does not take up much space on an android device, and it is a good preview to the other Instant Anatomy lectures available for android devices at various prices.
