" The charts and tables clearly show the treatment a patient needs and a quick guide for paramedics in ambulances, doctors and nurses in emergency rooms, and cardiologists, Agladze added."
London, Aug 31 - Taking the right decision in a matter of seconds is crucial when dealing with heart attacks or acute heart diseases. The process will become a lot easier with the help of a new app.

Researchers have developed a mobile application that allows people to have instant access to the best recommendations on their mobile devices.

Developed by the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the user-friendly interactive application allows immediate access to diagnostics pathways on mobile phones.

We have created the first tool to help all healthcare professionals who treat patients with acute cardiovascular syndromes to make the correct decisions fast, said professor Hector Bueno, president elect and acting president of ACCA.

The ACCA clinical decision making tool-kit is based on ESC clinical practice guidelines (1-5) and was written by European experts in acute cardiovascular care.

The seven chapters cover symptoms (chest pain), acute coronary syndromes, cardiac arrest and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), rhythm disturbances and acute vascular syndromes.

The ACCA tool-kit will help us save lives, which is the main goal of doctors in every country, noted Vaya Agladze, a medical practitioner from Tbilisi, Georgia.

The charts and tables clearly show the treatment a patient needs and a quick guide for paramedics in ambulances, doctors and nurses in emergency rooms, and cardiologists, Agladze added.

The mobile app is now available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
