MedCalc App Review (v1.2)

Medical Calculators are always useful in the wards, whether you’re trying to calculate the Parkland formula or an Anion Gap. This free app contains tons of formulas and a great search feature.

Medical Spanish (1.2) [App Review ]

We have an updated review of this application highlighting it’s new features. The review can be found here.

Medical Spanish is an app that helps you communicate with Spanish speaking patients in a health care setting. The app has a very detailed description in the App store, so I won’t get into the “nitty gritty”, but instead I’ll focus on the usefulness of the app. I’ll touch on this later, but you can use this app even if you do not know a single word of Spanish.

ReachMD CME (1.0) [App Review]

This app is now outdated. We recommend you try another ReachMD app, Medical Radio. We featured Medical Radio in one of our previous posts. We recommend their new Medical Radio app, which is also free, and significantly more useful.

Diagnosaurus DDx (1.3) [App Review]

This is definitely one of our favorite apps. It allows you to come up with a quick differential diagnosis based on the symptoms present. Extremely useful on early morning rounds or in the clinic setting.
