Now that it's getting close to Halloween, we're running a contest to hear your scariest stories! These can be scary stories that you've experienced or stories that you've heard and the story with the most reactions will win!
hola senorita --sorry about not getting back to you...it ended up being a very busy weekend. I got the johns hopkins manual for the PDA and it is GREAT. i think the washington manual is WAY too simplistic. I personally also love epocrates. you have to pay big bucks for it -- but it is so useful. great for medicine, er, ob/gyn, the whole works. good luck!!
I finally broke down and got a pocket pc.
what software is good? i downloaded a few free trials.. but haven't purchasd anything..
I love epocrates.... it's saved me a ton of time. I also use the freeware program Eponyms often. It lists all the names of signs, diseases, etc and then you click on it and it's got a short blurb about what it is - great for a med student who can't possibly memorize all the "also known as" names. I think the freeware John Hopkins Antibiotics Guide is also good, although mine locks on me every now and then. ISilo is a document reader that has a pretty good amount of medical documents available for it. I've gotten the Papmeister and think it will be helpful - basically having the references at my fingertips instead of running to a book each time. Just got a freeware Ob program that I haven't gotten to test yet - I'll let you know on it. It looks promising with a OB wheel, IVF wheel, and OB patient manager that you can type in the pt info then beam it to the oncoming shift. Snow- it was really nice of you to post about your program, glad to hear it's going well for you.
www.skyscape.com has great affordable program you can also try free trials. I like the Wash manual of OB/Gyn and the Dr. Drugs programs as well as 5Min Clin consult (look unfer FP title) wel worth the $$
