App specialized in heart disease is created in Mexico

By Valeria Bigurra Peñavera

In recent years, heart disease has increased considerably in Mexico and the world, largely attributed to increasing rates of obesity and diabetes. In light of this, the Society of Interventional Cardiologists of Mexico (Socime) released the "Código Infarto” (roughly, “Codename: Heart Attack”) app.

This app is intended to educate people about heart diseases, while helping sufferers if they experience an episode.

You can download it for iOS or Android for free. With it, users can find information on 248 hospitals and 100 cardiologists in the country, who they may call in an emergency.

Codigo Infarto

"Código Infarto" has several sections. You can find everything about the symptoms of a heart attack; as well as a listing by state, with public and private hospitals that provide specialized care, among other things.

This app is very important and will surely help save many lives. By just pressing a button, the user will be able to connect to the pre-hospital service from the nearest facility or the city’s emergency dispatch number.

These are just some of the features that users have available from this app. Plus they will also be able to answer a questionnaire that will help the users know what their chances are of suffering a heart attack, which can help them take future precautions.
