Doc's Tip No.5
Where do I get the best Free Medical Software?
Back in Med School, I realised that I would never be able to remember all the medical information thrown at us. More importantly you must know where to look and obtain credible information. After all what we learnt in Med school is obsolete the moment we leave it. OK so here are some useful resources for free medical software.
This is a very good, albeit American based, drug reference that is consistently updated each time you sync your device. It is available for Palm and Pocket PC. Takes up a lot of space though as it has to be in the main memory.
This is a useful medical calculator for everything you might ever want to calculate..from EDD to GFR.
Mims for Asia, is a useful tool which is still in free beta, but can be a bit slow to load up.
Another excellent free resource available for the Palm and Pocket PC
Memoware has an extensice free collection of medical documents that can be downloaded and read in various formats.
FreewarePPC and FreewarePalm have a comprehensive Medical section on the latest freewares for both platforms. Worth a check now and again to keep updated.
These are also very exhaustive guides to medical software, some freeware and shareware for the pocket pc and palm.
