Lots of medical apps for doctors, nurses, providers, and patients get released each week. We’re committed to picking the most useful ones for medical professionals as they come along. Here is our selection of must-download medical apps for Android and iOS devices.

The Color Atlas and Synopsis of Family Medicine

The Color Atlas and Synopsis of Family Medicine is now available in app form for Android and Apple users. The third edition of this reference text includes over 2.400 full-color photographs to aid family medicine practitioners and students. It depicts the most common diseases seen in practice, with photographs showcasing classic and unusual presentations. The images are accompanied by up-to-date evidence-based treatment recommendations. Each case is introduced with a Patient Story that sets the scene and enables better retention of facts. Following this introduction, information is presented in a bulleted format and broken down by the path a physician would mindfully follow: epidemiology, etiology and pathophysiology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and management. The reference text includes adult conditions, as well as pediatrics, women’s health, physical and sexual abuse, and substance abuse. New to this edition are chapters on the opioid crisis, mental health, LGBT-specific health issues, Zika, Ebola, and sports-related head injury. The text can be viewed offline after download and can be navigated through the table of contents or the quick search tool. Users can customize their app with notes and bookmark on chapters, images, and tables. The Color Atlas & Synopsis of Family Medicine, 3/E is available for download on Google Play and the Apple App Store for $129.99.

Paramedics Plus Protocol App

Paramedics Plus Protocol App provides offline access to the Paramedics Plus Dallas EMS protocols and educational resources. The protocols are grouped by topic and then listed alphabetically. For example, adult protocols, pediatric protocols, obstetrical protocols and more. The search function can quickly identify any topic or keyword within the materials. Users can favorite frequently referenced protocols or those that need further study. Additionally, notes can be added and saved within the app attached to each protocol. The app is updated shortly after new protocols are added to the online manual; this offers a currency unmatched by printed protocol manuals.
