Abdominal Pain Checker

About App:

It is estimated that 30% of adults in the West experience abdominal pain. Although many of these sufferers have functional disorders, there are still many who would benefit from urgent or semi-urgent care. Diagnosis for many patients is missed, probably due to poor description of their symptoms.

Abdominal Pain Checker is an app that seeks to support patients and test the knowledge of healthcare providers regarding the issue of abdominal pain. The app has both online and offline components.

The online aspect includes a walk-through assessment of abdominal pain by gender for adults. Note that the online tool is insensitive for pregnant patients and children below the age of 15 may not find the tool supportive. You do not need to type in anything to get a probable diagnosis of your condition. The tool does not replace healthcare providers but instead provides support for those who use it so that they can have a productive consultation with their doctors. In some instances, you may find that you are reassured regarding your pain. We would still advise that you consult your doctor should you need further evaluations.

The second aspect of the online tool includes a certified knowledge test with questions for nurses and other healthcare workers who need evidence for revalidation purposes. On successful completion of the test, a certificate will show up with your scores (above 70%). You can then print this off or send it to your email for electronic storage.

A healthy lifestyle quiz targeting all has replaced the previous knowledge game in order to help all who engage with the app. Once you have completed the game and inserted your name (which does not have to be your real name), your scores will show up on your page!

Offline resources - include description of abdominal pain and the approach to diagnosis. It has several pictoral information regarding common causes and provides nice photos of likely organs and diseases that may be presenting with pains in different locations of the abdomen.

Lifestyle modifications for conditions like gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and irritable bowel syndrome are also provided within the app.

Photo gallery is also provided for ease of understanding by those that may desire to.
