Four Alliance pocket films have been included in the video library of the Cardio-Visual multimedia platform. 

They include: Aortic Stenosis in Seniors ExplainedLiving with VTE and Preventing Deadly Blood Clots, Living with Atrial Fibrillation, and Preventing Stroke from Atrial Fibrillation.

The Cardio-Visual app allows "health care providers to explain, discuss, and demonstrate conditions, procedures, and devices with patients and colleagues using an incredible library of short animation videos and illustrations of most cardiovascular areas. This tool aims to enhance provider-patient interaction, to improve patient understanding of complex cardiovascular issues while saving time and efficiency for providers."

Using their iPad or iPhone, experts can utilize the videos to easily explain various cardiovascular conditions to patients. You can download the app here.

Because our pocket films are made with patient education in mind, they were a natural fit for the Cardio-Visual platform. We have a whole library of films that you can watch on cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, and other conditions here.

To see how the app works, check out this short video below demonstrating how a cardiologist uses the app to discuss treatment options for aortic valve disease. This video features the Aortic Stenosis in Seniors Explained pocket film.
