There are thousands of new medical apps released each year. And every year, the physician editors at iMedicalApps sort through the year’s new crop of apps and pick the best new medical apps. This year, we picked a group of medical apps that were innovative, filled important needs, and offered really valuable resources. And somewhat surprisingly, the majority of them were free.
We’ve all been called about a patient with a drug overdose of some kind – too much dilaudid, atenolol in a hospitalized patient with renal dysfunction, or a patient showing up to the ED after ingesting something — let’s say pesticides. You may remember that Narcan is the antidote of narcotic overdose, glucagon for beta blockers, and atropine for organophosphate poisoning. But what about the initial dose, frequency, and follow up? That’s where the ACEP Toxicology Section Antidote app
can help. This fantastic free app from the American College of Emergency Physicians packs a ton of critical information into a really easy-to-use, well-designed app. Oh — and did we mention it’s free?
Price of the ACEP Toxicology Section Antidote app: Free
