The future in cardiological conversation
CARDIO SHOW ROOM

Better treatment of cardiovascular diseases thanks to medical research and technical innovations

Most people in Germany still die from cardiovascular diseases. In 2015, 39% of all deaths were related to cardiovascular diseases. In recent years, there has been immense progress in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. There are both medical and technical reasons for this development.

Nevertheless, it has also become increasingly difficult for patients and doctors to efficiently communicate with each other and for medical staff to sufficiently explain the many different procedures associated with the treatment options of cardiovascular diseases. Until now, doctors have typically only been able to explain the disease and the treatment options to the patient during a patient’s consultation by using words, drawings or pictures.

During consultation, a patient usually receives a great deal of information on modern therapy options, such as operations, interventions and ablations (interventions with catheters) within a short and rather restricted period of time. However, one can hardly sufficiently process such a mass amount of information as a non-professional. Often enough, patients do not dare to ask questions if they have not clearly understood something. The emotional strain is aggravating and dissatisfying – and it happens every day.

The CardioShowroom (CSR) explains cardiovascular diseases

Now a program is coming onto the market that will greatly improve patients’ understanding: the CARDIOLECTRA CardioShowroom (CSR).

HOW DOES A HEALTHY HEART WORK?

The CardioShowroom (CSR) shows you exactly how it works. At the core of the CSR, there is a 3D heart that can be rotated, cut open, made transparent or zoomed in on. Interactive animations illustrate the functions of a healthy heart:

  • the pump function
  • the blood circulation
  • the heart rhythm and
  • the flap function.

One click opens the heart, making the blood vessels, valve structure and excitation conduction system become visible. The program uses comprehensible texts and allows you to take your time to not just look at how a healthy heart functions, but to experience it in 3D.

WHAT DOES A SICK HEART LOOK LIKE?

Diseases and typical disease progressions can also be systematically selected and then displayed on the 3D model with merely the touch of a button.

From the four categories of cardiovascular diseases, the following four most common diseases can be systematically selected on the 3D model:

  • Circulatory disorders (coronary heart disease)
  • heart rhythm disturbances
  • flap defect
  • Heart failure (heart failure)

The corresponding courses typically associated with these diseases can be seen and an explanatory animation can be obtained at just the touch of a button.

HOW DO YOU CURE A DISEASED HEART?

In the following step you can see the different technical therapy possibilities of the disease. You can see the effects of both established and novel treatment methods. For example, you can see how a closed artery is reopened with catheter technology in the event of a heart attack.

In the case of a narrowed aortic valve – the large valve between the left ventricle and the aorta – it is shown how the valve affected by calcification is dilated and then a biological aortic valve prosthesis is released.

Improved understanding of cardiovascular diseases

The modern 3-D view provides a better understanding of both diseases and treatment options. Many questions about certain techniques and procedures may already be answered by simply clicking on the therapeutic device to be used.


The 3D heart of CARDIOLECTRA: designed for many purposes

The CardioShowroom (CSR) is perfectly designed for

  • patient consultation
  • medical teaching and study as well as
  • presentation of the mode of action of medical technology and pharmaceutical products preferred in cardiology

Below we present the different versions in more detail.

CSR Basic

The CSR is an interactive, intuitively operable 3D representation of a heart that significantly improves the quality of physician-patient communication.

CardioShowroom (CSR) explains cardiovascular diseases

The CARDIOLECTRA CardioShowroom (CSR) is a program which greatly improves the level of a patient’s education and understanding. The images the patient sees in the CardioShowroom allow him to go into the OR/intervention/ablation with a better feeling. The patient can now visualize the pending procedures and the course of the procedure for themselves and can therefore have more confidence in the doctors preforming the procedure as well as in the procedure itself.

The 3D heart of CARDIOLECTRA can also make eventual complications visible

The aesthetics and technically well-designed animations of the CardioShowroom lead the patient to a much deeper and better-rooted understanding of not only the disease and upcoming procedure, but also of the risks involved with the chosen treatment. The CardioShowroom therefore provides much better support regarding a patient’s education than merely words, drawings or pictures medical personnel have attempted to supply thus far.

The app for patients will be launched in 2020. To the right you can request a free trial version of the program. You will receive a license code by mail and can choose between a PC and Mac version. The trial version expires automatically after seven days. You will not be asked for account or credit card information and you will not subscribe automatically.

The CardioShowroom (CSR) explains the functioning of a healthy heart as well as cardiovascular diseases, their therapies and possible complications.

CSR Professional

A new quality in patient consultation.

The CSR is an interactive, intuitively operable 3D representation of the heart that noticeably improves the quality of doctor-patient communication.

The CardioShowroom for consultations taking place at a heart failure outpatient department, valve outpatient department, rhythm outpatient department

The CardioShowroom (CSR) was developed by a cardiologist. The interactive 3D consultation instrument supports the specialist physician, cardiologist or heart surgeon during the patient consultation, in the special outpatient department or in a cardiological practice with first-class 3D animation features.

The excellent visual support provided gives the consultation a new and enhanced quality that strengthens the patient’s confidence in the physician and their chosen treatment method. Questions can be better answered and explained, many of which may even be eliminated due to the improved visualization of information given.

The consultation time required is less, but the quality is higher and the patient is left with a better feeling due their understanding of the disease and the intervention to take place. A patient’s confidence in their physician and their treatment is strengthened thanks to our high technical standards.

The program can be individually adapted so that the physician’s preferred types of intervention for the respective disease are automatically selected by the programme, e.g. certain techniques preferred by medical personnel for the ablation of atrial fibrillation.

The heart model is displayed on a large 32″ or 42″ diameter touchscreen monitor.

The license program for Health Care Professionals is available now. Specialists can request a free trial version of the program to the right, that will automatically expire after seven days. You will receive a license code by mail and can choose between a PC and Mac version. The trial version expires automatically after seven days. You will not be asked for account or credit card information and you will not subscribe automatically.

The use of the CardioShowroom on a tablet improves the quality of the patient information conversation.

Presentation of a medical application

CSR in sales

Don’t just present – convince.

The Cardio Showroom (CSR) is the perfect tool to train employees of the medical technology and pharmaceutical industries regarding the effectiveness of new products and technical possibilities.

New products or technical possibilities, as well as their effects, are graphically shown. New training content is therefore made accessible more easily, faster and is better understood and can therefore be reproduced more comprehensively than with conventional training course methods of mere presentations.

Highly trained employees are able to introduce customers to the latest products and tools through CSR and better explain these. The ability to answer questions is enhanced and less time is needed to do so. The effects are more convincing than when explaining information to patients using the old-fashioned method of presentation. Each manufacturer receives an individual version of the Cardio Showroom in order to optimally present and communicate the functionality of their products or medicines.

Benefits of the CardioShowroom when training your employees

The CardioShowroom makes new training content more accessible, quicker and easier to understand, and is more comprehensive than traditional, presentation-based training. Questions are answered better and faster. In turn, your employees can use the CardioShowroom to optimally present and explain the latest products and tools as well as their impact to their customers.

Your excellently trained employees will be able to close a sale more quickly.

If you would like to use the CardioShowroom to train your employees, please contact us. We design the program individually and adapt it to training needs.
