Mobile Apps that Provide Additional Training for Physicians
One of the popular medical apps categories geared toward healthcare professionals are Medical Calculators and Reference Information. The Doctors and students often need to check symptoms or want a quick refresher on a procedure.
We have reviewed several mobile apps that stand out due to innovative approach they provide:
CPR Game . Unleashing the teaching potential of gamification for the healthcare industry, creators of the CPR Game built a mobile simulator of an emergency room. The app was created to help Emergency Medicine physicians refresh and practice their skills.
It tests the doctors on the types of interventions they perform and when they perform them. By interactively going through various types of ACLS and critical care algorithms, the physicians learn to apply the necessary procedures in a timely manner. They also have a chance to analyze their mistakes. In this way, the CPR Game has the potential to save lives.
The BurnMed application provides an innovative way to access injuries of burn patients. It also encompasses a comprehensive 15-minute training on initial burn management. In BurnMed, the user draws the burned areas onto a 3-D anatomic figure. The app then uses this diagram to calculate the total body surface area (TBSA) burned, as well as calculate fluid resuscitation. The Treatment Guidelines summarize the essential steps in early management with links to further teachings about inhalation injuries, escharotomy and dressings.
