On June 6 at Appy Hour, Wayne Hendrix, a third year medical student in the School of Medicine at the University of Utah, presented two medical calculation apps. The apps are MedCalc and ABG Acid-Base Eval.
Wayne uses both of these medical calculator apps in rotations. MedCalc (picture on the left) is a board calculator app with multiple medical formulas, scores, scales, and classifications divided into overarching topics or body systems.
The other app, ABG Acid-Base Eval (picture on the right), is a more specific tool for analyzing ABG’s and electrolytes in patients. This app takes the user through a step-by-step approach to discover potential acid-base disorders and offers diagnostic ideas. Wayne believes that ABG Acid-Base Eval is a great tool for guiding and reminding practitioners of the methodical approach!
Give them a try!
