Summary

Assesses whether a user might be at risk of blackouts. Developed for people with epilepsy, psychological problems, or syncope (and also intended for use by their family members or carers, or by medical professionals). After the user has answered a checklist of questions related to blackout, the app awards a red or green ‘flag’, depending on whether the user seems at high risk of blackouts, or is more likely to experience blackouts only of a simple, harmless type.

Reviews

Reviewer: Syncope Trust And Reflex anoxic Seizures (STARS), UK
Review: “We have developed a new app to identify blackouts which require medical attention. It is hoped that the app will go some way to prevent misdiagnosis, and help identify potentially fatal blackouts for medical attention. The app provides us with a new medium to reach patients and professionals, to ensure that anyone presenting with blackouts receives the correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment, informed support, and signposting to the appropriate medical professional.”

Reviewer: Atrial Fibrillation Association (AFA), UK
Review: “Has been developed to enable patients, family members and doctors to go through questions relating to the high-risk causes of blackouts. Any high-risk characteristic of the patient gets a red ‘flag’, signifying that the patient should seek medical attention. If no red flags are found, the patient gets a green ‘flag’.”
