Asbestos Information In The Palm Of Your Hands


Exposure to asbestos in the workplace is one of the scariest prospects for workers and obtaining information about symptoms quickly can help with early diagnosis.

There are many cancer apps on the market designed to help patients recognize symptoms and guide them through the cancer treatment journey back to health, and asbestos disease/illness is covered.

The idea of using an app to guide you through serious illness might take a bit of getting used to, but the government has recently released details of its plans to allow GPs to prescribe apps to help patients manage their conditions and obtain information quickly and easily.

For iPhone users, the Mesothelioma app by PTAJ Marketing Inc covers the info about the different types of mesothelioma and an overview of the disease, plus information about asbestos disease/illness treatment options.

The best known form of mesothelioma is probably lung disease cause by asbestos, but mesothelioma patients can also suffer from pericardial mesothelioma (heart disease related to asbestos exposure) and testicular mesothelioma (testicular cancer related to mesothelioma exposure).

People who develop mesothelioma or asbestos related disease may have been exposed to the toxic material years or decades earlier, as the symptoms of asbestosis mesothelioma can take years to develop – and if you know you have been exposed to asbestos at work, it can be a constant worry. Being able to refer to an app whenever you feel concerned can help allay fears and also help users seek an early diagnosis.

Once you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos illness/disease, another mesothelioma iPhone app which can offer support is mesocare by AppMakr, which can be downloaded free and is designed to guide patients and their families through treatment and management of mesothelioma.

Patients with asbestos related disease might also find the Blausen Medical Atlas and Blausen Respiratory Atlas informative. The apps cost £2.99 and the Respiratory Atlas all covers 37 respiratory diseases with 3D animations showing how the lungs function and how disease affects function. Each animation lasts 1-2 minutes and the Blausen medical atlases are not only used by patients but also medical students and doctors, so you will have the best clinical information about your disease in the palm of your hands.

Mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease/illness can be extremely debilitating, but new treatments are being developed and having as much information as possible can help patients manage their disease, as well as helping the rest of the family understand what their loved one is experiencing and how to help them.

Asbestosis Compensation can give you and your family the chance to relax and know that money isn’t such a problem in this time of worry.
