Checkout the New Book that Uses QR Codes

Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases
A new book with QR codes.

Have you ever read a book that describes a procedure and wished that you could see what it really looks like?  One of this week’s new library books, Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases by Daniel Shindler, provides a unique interactive experience with your mobile device and a QR code reader app.  The book is described as “An Atlas for Mobile Devices.”   Throughout the book there are QR codes (see below for more information about QR codes) that link to over 850 echocardiography video loops and images.   

As an example, the section of the book that discusses mitral stenosis ends with 3 QR codes that link to 3 videos that show how “Color flow can be used to calculate mitral stenosis orifice area.” (3:87) Readers can scan the QR code and the video automatically displays.

After spending a week on the New Book shelf, Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases by Daniel Shindler, will be available for checkout.   Bring your mobile device, come visit the Becker Library and take a look.
