A useful, cheap reference app for students with a basic to moderate understanding of the human vascular system.
Cardiovascular System 3D Review
by on December 2, 2011
Biology and medical students are well catered for on the iPad thanks to companies such as 3D4Medical, with Cardiovascular System coming in at the low end of its app range. The main screen presents a skeleton, diffuse with a network of arteries and veins.
Pulsing circles indicate regions of the body; tap to zoom in on one or swipe to switch between lateral, anterior and posterior views. Get in close and a button press on the interface flags up individual vessels – one tap shows the vessel’s name, two offer details of its function.
You can hit the info button any time for an exhaustive description of the vascular terrain, but it’s a tad dry at the best of times. Thankfully, a simple quiz offers some relief. But the most useful feature for students is the visual reference index, searchable in both English and Latin.
What’s deflating is that you don’t navigate a 3D model rendered in real-time, but only ever flit between a series of static images. The developer hasn’t so much missed a trick here as held it back it for the pricey NOVA ‘pro’ series of apps.
