Developed in Holguin, Cuba a Defibrillation Training Software
The multimedia "Cardiotrainer" program stands out as being the first creation of the Havana-based Research and Development Group of the Central Institute of Digital Research (ICID), in Báguano, Holguin.

With understandable menus in Spanish and English, Cardiotrainer is a practical training tool that facilitates the learning of appropriate clinical actions for defibrillation and the standardization of a functional heart, the principal human muscle.

Defibrillation performed correctly and quickly, is the most important step in determining the survival of patients with a cardiac attack.

The Cardiotrainer has been used with good results in the training of technical staff to provide technical assistance to teams and groups of medical graduates studying cardiology.

Created in August 2006, a medical team in Báguano also developed a new version of the mathematical algorithms incorporated in Ipermag, a medical production of ICID designed to study ambulatory blood pressure.

New projects are being undertaken by members of this group aimed at ensuring the compatibility of cardiographic signals in their interaction with databases and the design of other digital applications for Ipermag.

The positive performance achieved in less than a year and a half has distinguished this traditionally sugar-producing region as an area in which scientific development and advanced information technologies are also playing a role.
