This App, the Hemophilia Injury Recognition Tool (HIRT? ) was developed for, and with help from, young men with MILD hemophilia. Many people with milder forms of hemophilia are able to live a normal and active life and have few episodes of serious bleeding. Minor bumps and bruises that occur with daily life or sports often heal by themselves.
But once in a while, an injury may be more serious, and it is important to be able to tell the difference. HIRT? was developed:
(1) as a self-management tool, to help young men with mild hemophilia assess their symptoms and decide if an injury needs medical attention, and
(2) to help them contact a hemophilia treatment center (HTC).
