I am a GN in the ER. I am looking for recommendations on PDA software to ease my work day. I still have trouble with documentation, so that is a focus. Thank you all in advance for your help. There so many beautiful, talented, and kind nurses in the world it is an honor to be among you.

Try ePocrates.com very good drug resource for USA based nurses (no cost for Palm but fee for Pocket PC).

Consider Archimedes at http://www.skyscape.com (free) for convernsions and ER suite 4.0 at MedicalWizards.com (costs) for informmation and algorithms.

Pocket Stroke is good at medicalpocketpc.com.

Thank you Chris, I will check those out. Tidings to Oz - visited Melbourne a couple of times - beautiful city - beautiful people. I lived in Drummoyne (Sydney) in 1995. I would go back in a New York minute.

On the pepid site: I don't understand. Do you download it just once, or do you have to go back for updates? It lists a 6mo, 12mo subscriptions. Can someone explain this? I'd like to just download something once.

My understanding is that you download it once during the period that you subscribe for (either 6 or 12 months) and that there is a cradle that connects to your home computer that you place it in when not in use and this is how any updates are installed. Mostly I think these updates would relate to medications.
