I have seen a lot of docs and nurses lately using their Iphones to look things up (and maybe texting, who knows :lol2: ). Do you have a favorite app? I have tried to find some nursing related ones, and there don't seem to be... Read More

    Medscape is awesome for looking up meds. Better than Epocrates, in my opinion.

    I also like my menstrual tracker, also free, so I don't get surprised at work...

    I have both Skyscape and Lexi-comp on my ipod touch and from playing around with both..... I was not impressed with Skyscape at all. Yes its cheaper but alot of the programs they offer on there are not really interactive and cluttered. Many pages are in pdf format and it feels like you have to scroll just to find the right info.

    Lexi-comp on the other hand is easier and faster to use. It is also interactive and easier to read. And it seems like they did a good job on the ipod/iphone.

    But yeah so far my favorites are Lexi-comp, MedCalc, Lab & Diagnostic Tests, Emergency Medical Spanish Guide, Instant ECG, Physical Exam Essentials, Micromedex (free), Medscape (free) and tetris.

    There are alot of nursing apps you can find once you get it jailbreaked and know where to look.

    Micromedex. It's free and great drug lookup source.

    I second Micromedex, I wish it had everything that is available on the Micromedex on the hospital computer but for free it is a great app. I also use Nursing Central but Davies drug guide is lacking (On micromedex the app breaks down which of the adverse effects that are likely and those that are rare. Davies give them all in one list). I flip back and forth between the two. What I wish I had was a quick and easy way to look up incompatibility of drugs and fluids. Neither app does this as good as Micromedex on the computer does. Epocrates drug reference takes too long to look anything up. I haven't reupped the subscription to Nursing Central and I think when I get a new phone I going to look at Lexi-comp.
