Cardiac Examination Checklist Mobile App

The Cardiac Examination Checklist mobile app makes it easy to track all the steps involved in typical cardiac examinations electronically. The app was designed to assist physicians, physician assistants and med students who perform cardiac examinations.

The cardiac physical exam checklist covers every step that should be taken, including getting the patient heart rate and blood pressure reading, checking for common signs of cardiovascular disease, listening for cardiac murmurs with the stethoscope and more. Once the physical examination has been completed, the medical provider can provide an accurate assessment of the patient cardiac system and note any signs of coronary artery disease and other information about cardiac vascular health.
