Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
3D Heart & Circulatory Premium 2 provides unlimited ways to learn, review, and teach anatomy and physiology of the human circulatory system. Stunning 3D anatomical models, interactive presentations, quizzes, and a gallery of animations and illustrations are included in this easy-to-use app.
* iPad 2 or new iPad required. Will not run on iPad 1.
* Explore over 600 structures of the heart and vascular anatomy; tilt, rotate or zoom in to get a better view; hide and fade surrounding structures for a virtual dissection; read in-depth definitions of anatomical structures.
* See and learn about blood flow through the heart, the function of valves, systemic and pulmonary circulation, and other circulatory processes through 3D interactive presentations that allow you to pause the animation to explore the shown anatomy.
* Use the draw function in the Atlas section to annotate 3D images. Save these to create a series of study slides, or use the email function to share.
* Access a gallery of two-dozen animations and illustrations to teach or learn about basic functions, common pathologies, and procedures, such as heart conduction, arrhythmias, heart failure, coronary bypass, and angioplasty.
* Test your knowledge using the quiz bank, containing over 200 hundred questions.
* Optimized for retina display on new iPad.
Visible Body’s 3D Heart & Circulatory Premium 2 is ideal for students, instructors, healthcare professionals, and patients who seek to better understand and communicate in-depth information about the heart, arteries, and veins that move blood throughout the body.
The 3D models in 3D Heart & Circulatory Premium 2 are based on those contained in Visible Body’s award-winning and bestselling 3D Human Anatomy Atlas. 3D Heart & Circulatory Premium includes additional content on the circulatory system that is not in the Atlas. The additional content includes 3D presentations, quizzes, and animations and illustrations that provide information about function, physiology, and pathology.

Some real conversation for you
Ok...so I am a medical intern and had a guy die on me due to heart failure that another person did not manage so well. So I thought to myself that I had better really really learn about how the heart works. Needless to say, that is a life's work, but I've set about reading Harrisons and Braunwalds and Hursts and all that. With this app, I hoped to be shown how the heart worked...and I mean how it really worked. Not Discovery Channel glosses- I am talking pre-load, after-load, right heart vs. left heart function. Heck, perhaps i was dreaming when I hoped for some common problems of the heart like MR, TR, AS, AR, VT, AF, SVT, NSVT. Maybe even some useful knowledge about different cardiac drugs.
This is a very good app. The anatomy is really really well done and the animation is easy to navigate. I am really happy to see a lot of minor structures like the bronchial arteries included. The tools on the navigator are great as well. You can essentially see the circulation from any angle that pleases you. This would be a great resource for a surgeon. THIS ALONE MAKES IT WORTH 20 bucks. No doubt.
But there is basically no serious physiology. It is all Discovery Channel level. I do not intend to be demeaning, that is just what it is. This app is not up to the task of teaching physiology to people whose patients may live or die on the basis of that doctor's knowledge. But like I said...I am still glad I got it.
A bit too basic...
Overall well done and informative app. That being said, as a cardiology fellow, I was hoping for a more detailed anatomical representation of the coronary arteries and their distribution, specifically visualization of the 'less minor vessels [e.g. obtuse marginal, diagonal branches, SA/AV node artery (and perhaps graphics demonstrating the difference between right and left dominant circulation)]'. As a cardiologist, these are salient vessels as they are not infrequently the culprit lesion identified with angiography. On a positive note, the animations are remarkable and I use them when discussing procedures/concepts with my patients - the patients truly appreciate being able to understand and visualize what is happening to them.
Perhaps you could provide an updated version addressing the relative flaws discussed above to those who have already purchased this app. I believe there is significant potential for this app, possibly becoming a must have item for cardiologists across the country.
Phenomenal Cardio App!
This is a great cardio app! I love the additional features with quizzing and the gallery section showing pathology and physiology. I also really like the overview of the circulatory system as it allows you to stop at any time during the walkthrough and access the models (great for teachers) and then resume where you left off. I have a few other apps by Visible Body, and I have to say, nothing else really compares to their level of excellence, both visually and as far as ease-of-use in the interface. They set the mark extremely high, and they deliver! Phenomenal app, phenomenal bargain!
