What medical smartphones apps do You use?

I’ve recently described how I use a Samsung Galaxy Tab in medicine and in all my online activities.  There is no doubt about the power of mobile health and as now there is a medical category even on the Android Marketplace, there will be more and more health apps this year. I also wrote about websites and search engines that will help you find interesting and useful medical apps, but the best way would be crowd-sourcing, of course. As a first step, I asked my friend and squash partner, Gabor Csato, MD, registrar (anaesthesiology and intensive therapy) to share the apps he uses in his practice on his iPhone with us.

Pubmed search app, anaesthesiology descriptions and guides, calculators, Epocrates database, pharmindex and one surprise app ( which I will descibe in details soon).

I use the apps below on my Android:

Please send us screenshots about what kind of medical/health apps you use!

    There are many app out there which does the job, but I am very happy with the app from Danish Red Cross. Not only does it contains the necessary information. But the menu is also very basic with at good and user friendly design, that lets you navigate easy around the program.

    I especially liked one thing, which is the information level. If gives you the basic information in the “scenes” and if you are in the need of more, there are link which lead you to detail information about, lets say fx. Asma, onces you are finish reading this, you easily navigate back to the “scene”

    I bought the program in Denmark, it have had a great success there, i guess like many, i trust more the first aid information that Red Cross provides, especially in Denmark, where they are the leader on the marked for providing first aid courses and material. Plus the fact about giving money to a helporganisation, i prefer that instead from some developer i don´t know and there are no warranty on, that he knows what he is talking about

    The program works for iphone in English and Danish, and I know it will be available for android soon!

    So.. the big question is really, have i safe any lives since i got the program. No, but i most admit to that my knowledge of first aid has been significantly improved and I feel better equipped to provide first aid if a situation arises. Is it not what it is all about?
