Free PDA Medical Software

  1. i found another site with nursing skill videos! they are interesting and like i said they can be downloaded to a pda. that sounds great because next time you are in a clinical and unsure of the procedure for a skill all you have to do is look at it before you perform it. check it out. http://www.etu.sgul.ac.uk/cso/
    also, here's website with even more skills like basic life support. it has short video clips you can watch. http://cal.fmc.flinders.edu.au/gemp/...il/default.htm

    moderator note: per member request, starting this sticky for free pda software - merged a couple of similar threads. - nurse ratched

    "bump" just is a response meant to move the thread to the top of the "new posts" list - Bumps it up to the top of the list.

    Hi All,

    This site lists lots of free medical software for PDAs on one page. Pretty nifty.

    Sure. Using this link http://www.etu.sgul.ac.uk/cso/

    • Go to the video section
    • Choose the video you would like on the left side
    • When the video comes up, scroll down a little and under the video it will say: This video is available for PDA devices: and will give a short list.
    • See if it is available for your PDA.

    epocrates.com has an abbreviated free version of their drug guide. I believe it is called "Epocrates Rx Free". They also have a "Med Tools" program for free.
