Cool Medical Apps

The best thing about the iphone and ipad are the cool apps.  I am learning about new ones all the time but here are a few Medical Apps that I like and I think they are all free.

  • Lose it!  This is a great app for dieters.  It is easy to use and intuitive and you can track your caloric intake and exercise.  Just set your goal and how many calories you want to eat a day and it maps out how long it will take you to get there.
  • EyeChart  I've never had the chance to use it with patients but it looks like it would work well.
  • Speed Bones Lite (Quiz)  For those of us who still like to test ourselves on anatomy.  Name the bones while the clock is ticking.  I do pretty well on this one!
  • PoWorkout    A cool app that takes you through an entire fitness workout with video on how to do it right and info on what muscle groups are working.  Abs, cardio, total body.  It's all here.
  • MPR  This app has a lot of drug information, prescribing, doses, interactions arranged by organ system or with a simple search function.  Its better than carrying around a PDR and easier for me to use than epocrates which requires me to sign in each time I want to look something up.
  • ICD9pcp  I love this app. I'm constantly having to look up ICD9 codes and this really helps me out.
  • Fluid  Just a cool little app that calms me down.
  • Bump  What's not to like about an app that allows you to exchange contact information by just bumping phones.
  • AwesmFacts If you like trivia, you will like this app.
  • Merck Manual Home Edition  Curious about a symptom or a medical term you heard?  you can find everything in the Merck Manual.  Treatments for injuries and emergencies are all here.
Please let me know about your favorite apps...medical or not.

I wrote an article about cool, free health apps and ended up choosing MyFitnessPal over Lose It. It had more products in its database so it's wealth of info trumped the cute graphics and adorable icon of Lose It. I'd also recommend the Period Tracker app too.

Glucose Buddy for diabetes. You can track your blood sugar readings, medications, food, and activities. Each entry allows a note to be added to the log entry. The app has a companion website where you can filter and export log entries to a spreadsheet. Also calculate your A1c. This app is free too.

Other favorite apps, WootWatch, Pandora Radio, Words with Friends, and Audible.

Thanks for these great apps. There is also a new app that is going to be coming out at the Apple App Store called the Memorium App. It is to help identify bodies in a major disaster like what happened in Haiti developed by Doc Jan Gurley and it can also be used in Domestic Violence and Child abduction cases it is designed for a lay person to be able to take DNA, take a photo, log a name or code name and has GPS to log the location found. Doc Gurley wanted to develop it after being in Haiti in Feb. after the earthquake and seeing so many unidentified bodies.

We received an excellent guide on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I used to be searching for a protracted time.This made very glad! Anyway, in my language, there aren't a lot good source like this.

Can I make a suggestion? I believe youve received one thing good here. However what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or perhaps you might give us something to look at, something that would join what youre saying to something tangible? Only a suggestion. Anyway, in my language, there will not be a lot good source like this.

This may be a perfect example of information asymmetry and adverse selection in insurance. I hope all textbook authors and legislators notice.

I've to say, I dont know if its the clashing colours or the unhealthy grammar, but this blog is hideous! I imply, I dont want to sound like a know-it-all or something, however may you will have possibly put slightly bit more effort into this subject. Its really interesting, however you dont characterize it properly in any respect, man. Anyway, in my language, there aren't much good source like this.
