Medical technology has come a long way in the last century. It’s also become more personally useful. I love my iPhone and the peripheral brain it allows me to carry around. I ask it questions all day long: “what’s the dose of that medication? What is the starting rate for that drip? How sick is this patient with pancreatitis? Does this patient need a head CT? What are the normal vitals for that 11 pound infant? Where’s the nearest 24 hour pharmacy? Is my favorite coffee shop still open?”
The problem is it’s almost impossible to sift through the thousands of medical apps now on iTunes and find the ones that are good for working EPs. I’ve written about some of my favorite apps before, but now with the advent of Pinterest I can collect them all for you in one place. Check out the “Tools to Live By” board and find links to the full collection of medical apps I currently have on my iPhone. If you have others you love, please leave it in the comments, or send them my way so that I can add them to the collection or review them here.
