A seemingly random selection of calculators that includes some unusual tools but while excluding more common ones, this app still needs some work.
A number of studies have shown that medical calculators are extremely popular tools on mobile devices. The ability to quickly access and accurately calculate a useful result at the point of care is highly attractive to many healthcare professionals. However, many of these calculators omit the formula to calculate surgical risk of morbidity and mortality. Surgical Risk Calculator, an app from Cardiff Medical Apps, is designed to allow surgeons to calculate just that using the P-POSSUM operative mortality score system.
