Heart Failure

Fifty years ago, the diagnosis of heart failure was akin to a death sentence. Only weak medicines were available to fight fluid buildup, or make the heart pump harder. Thanks to research, more powerful medicines and devices are available today.

This inexpensive multitouch iBook from Harvard Health Publications explains heart failure, 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.
