I have a subcatagory "Medical" in my iPhone where the apps I love are kept. I was wondering what some of your favorite apps are? Mine are...
Lab Values +
: ($2.99) Fantastic app for looking up normal and abnormal lab values and their significance. Also has a medical abbreviations
and medical prefix/suffix tab that I don't really use, but seem like would be great for pre-nursing students.
: (Free) The same Micromedex you know and love, in an app version. Gory detail of all things pharmacological.
: (Free demo. $2.99 upgrade) My FAVORITE app period. This is the most fun game for anyone in the medical field looking to grow their knowledge. You're given a patient with a problem, you're the doctor, Go! 5 stars for this one!
: (Free) I truly don't use this much at all. I originally downloaded it under the impression that I could take a picture of a pill and it would find the name. I tried it once at work when I needed it and it failed. I called the pharmacy and they figured it out by my description. Real pharmacy trumped iPharmacy on this one.
: (Free) Peer-reviewed journals galore. Want to know what the literature says about a new antibiotic? Unsure whether it is best practice to flush vents with saline? This app is for you!
: ($0.99) This is my most recently downloaded app, so I'm not uber-familiar with it. However it does have a wealth of information! Built in NIH and Glascow Coma Scores among many other scores make for a handy go-to. It's also filled with critical situation algorithms good for the first time ACLS learner or the oldy just looking to brush up. It still has some major bugs to it, but I anticipate these to improve as the app gains popularity.
What do you have on your phone?
