Cardio Ex

Target Audience: General Audience

Company: Level Ex

Description: Cardio Ex is more than a mobile game. It’s cardiology reimagined. Explore conditions, therapies, devices, and techniques in a risk-free environment and enrich your expertise with this interactive medical resource developed by cardiologists, for cardiologists. Cardio Ex includes challenges that cover a breadth of topics: general cardiology, interventional cardiology, and electrophysiology, including longitudinal patient management cases, diagnostic cases, heart failure, Structural Heart Intervention, ACS, Arrhythmias, Dyslipidemias, Valvular Heart Disease, and more.

Skills and Ideas Taught: Cardio Ex cases range from common conditions like hypertension and congestive heart failure to complex like multifocal atrial tachycardia. Levels refresh every day with new diagnoses, treatments, and procedural challenges to help you hone your skills.

Goal: The goal of the game is to advance the knowledge and skills providers use to diagnose, intervene, and treat patients with cardiovascular conditions. Flex your deductive reasoning skills as you narrow down diseases to arrive at a diagnosis or weigh treatment options to maximize patient health and satisfaction before time runs out. Clinical levels feature acute myocardial infarction, HFpEF, HFrEF, multifocal atrial tachycardia, mitral regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, and more.

Primary Audience: Practicing cardiologists and people with an interest or background in medicine.

Assessment Approach: Player performance is tracked throughout each scenario and is measured against best practice standards. Some of the scoring mechanisms used include the evaluation of:

1. Proper device selection, arterial routing, operational technique, and timing in interventional cases.

2. Clinical patient evaluation actions, intervention and pharmaceutical prescribing, and total patient care management in treatment cases.

3. Efficacy and efficiency of patient workup, testing, and evaluations to eliminate confounding diseases in differential diagnosis cases.
