Not just for nursing school
but good for the practicing RN/LPN, too. Keep in mind that not all of these are free.
* ACLS Manual (this was a couple of bucks, I think...but it's practically the entire AHA ACLS manual on your phone at your fingertips)
* 3in1 Lab Values+
* Heart Murmur Pro
* There is this app called CriticalCare...I *think* it was free, or maybe it was $0.99 or $1.99...but it s a GOLDMINE of information!
* ABG STAT
* Stroke Scale, which has the NIHSS stroke scale on it. I have actually used this with patients to score them on the NIHSS when I didn't have the cards available to test language, dysarthria, or inattention. This also includes information on tPA administration, inclusion criteria, BP and stroke mimics.
There is also Skyscape (which is not free, very expensive, but again a wealth of information) and Medscape (free).
