Category: Smart phone and PDA - TECHNOLOGY

Introduction -Medical calculators on smart phones and PDA save time and help prevent calculation errors. Useful physiologic calculations are more readilyused if you do not need to rely on only your less than perfect memory.
There are many options but at this time Medcalc is my go-to calculator .
MedCalc runs on Palm OS and Windows Mobile handheld devices. It is designed for rapid calculation of common medical formulas and scores used in anesthesiology, pediatrics, emergency, intensive care and internal medicine.

Features -
  • free and easy to use
  • comprehensive (>80 formulas, see complete list)
  • formulas sorted by categories
  • units available either in S.I. or local units (defaults can be set for each item)
  • most formulas come with bibliographic references and clinical tips
  • results can be saved for later retrieval (Palm OS only)
System requirements -A Palm OS compatible device running Palm OS 3.1 or later Windows Mobile 2003 or later .
