Harvard Health Books


The coronary arteries, the arteries that nourish the heart, are prone to becoming clogged with cholesterol-filled plaque. One common sign of this problem is chest pain that comes on with physical exertion or stress. This pain, known as angina, is an annoyance when mild, and can restrict activity and diminish quality of life when severe.

This inexpensive multitouch iBook from Harvard Health Publications explains angina, and currently runs on the Apple iPhone and the iPad.  The book explains not only with words but also with 3D objects that you can move and play with, videos with a voice describing what is happening, interactive tools, and a voice that tells you how certain medical terms are pronounced.  The iBook was created in collaboration with Orca Health, Inc.  By employing the power of the iPhone and iPad, this iBook explains things in ways that words alone cannot do. Take a look.
