My take: This app falls into the category of, “I’m shocked no one thought of this earlier”.  Not only does this app enable you to take a picture of various images, but it enables you to mark out patient information — essential if you were to use the pictures you capture for presentation or sharing amongst colleagues.

iTunes Description: MediMarker is the simplest way to snap a picture of your patient’s x-ray, lesion, or other study and annotate it. Shoot a photo of an X-ray, pan with a two finger drag and zoom by pinching the area in question. Mark on it using your finger which acts as a black pen. Black out the patient name to maintain HIPAA compliance. Add a text label. Touch Save and the displayed image is added to your device’s iPhoto library.

My take: If you’re taking care of critically ill patients, you’re sure to have a respiratory therapist to help you with vent settings — however, you should be able to manipulate the settings on your own as well. This app helps with that.

iTunes Description: The MV Start app assists in the calculation of tidal volume to be administered to patients undergoing mechanical ventilation.
