Note: this App doesn’t claim to be a medical application.
Why buy an already outdated paper pocket reference that will become wrinkled, stained, misplaced and forgotten? For a fraction of the cost of even a basic printed guide, you'll never have to buy another quick reference. And you'll always be up-to-date.
palmEM is an all-in-one, rapid and succinct, evidence based emergency medicine quick reference. Internal medicine, critical care, family practice and urgent care clinicians will also find palmEM useful. The app is continually updated and expanded. Unlike several other references, updates are free and there are no yearly subscription fees.
"Doc APProvED: The relentless search for an emergency medicine app that does it all will inevitably lead to palmEM...a great quick reference for the price."
—Emergency Medicine News
"There is so much in here I don’t know where to begin. The app really seems to cover everything...Could I enthuse about this any more???"
"I was paying hundreds of dollars a year for [another app] but I’ve dumped that now. PalmEM is cheaper, prettier, faster and it’s calculators are easier to use in a hurry."
"Its succinct design works well with either the iPhone or iPad, and because it is a universal app, users needn’t be torn choosing between either well-optimized versions."

AF-STROKE is a simple application to assess patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) against stroke risk factors and to help choose appropriate antithrombotic therapy for stroke prevention. It calculates at once CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and HAS-BLED scores and creatinine clearance according to the Cockcroft-Gault equation. Based on the score results, the latest ESC and AHA/ASA advice on antithrombotic therapy is given. It is known to be crucial to check creatinine clearance before prescribing novel oral anticoagulants to avoid serious complications. The application warns you about the contraindication or necessity for a dose reduction, if creatinine clearance is abnormal. Finally, the latest ESC, ESO, AHA/ASA, NICE, and Canadian Cardiovascular Society guidelines are available for reviewing.
The main features of the application are:
-Getting the results with minimal screen touches
-Guidelines of the leading world scientific societies
-Small application size
-Supporting devices with different screen size and orientation, including tablets
-English and Russian languages
-Manual language switching
-E-mailing a detailed test report
-No advertisement and banners

• A combination risk calculator tool that uses CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and HAS-BLED
• Users can enter patient characteristics at the point of care and get individualized annual risk of ischemic stroke and thromboembolism with concurrent annual risk of major bleed
• Compare antithrombotic therapy options based on clinical trials (ACTIVE-A, RE-LY, ROCKET-AF, ARISTOTLE)
This app is adapted from a web tool created by Peter Loewen, B.Sc.(Pharm), ACPR, Pharm.D., FCSHP and can be viewed at http://www.sparctool.com/
In just ONE SCREEN, essential parameters are entered and displayed the results: the scores of thromboembolic risk (CHADSVASC), haemorrhagic risk (HASBLED) and glomerular filtration rate (Cockcroft-Gault formula). Finally, always in the same screen, are shown the resulting antithrombotic therapies, in adherence to the ESC guidelines.
At the bottom of the screen data are entered:
- age, weight (kg) and serum creatinine (mg/dL) , with keys (+) and (-) sensible to short or long click, for a quick and easy insertion of the values
- check-list of 12 clinical-anamnestic items.
Based on the data entered, the calculated results are automatically displayed in the upper section of the screen:
At the top right are shown the scores CHADSVASC, HASBLED and creatinine clearance calculated by the Cockcroft-Gault formula.
In the upper left shows the resulting therapeutic indications based on ESC guidelines 2012: three "traffic lights" appearing green or red for the three treatment options:
1) no antithrombotic therapy (NONE)
2) vitamin K antagonists (VKA)
3) New Oral Anticoagulants (NOAC).
For Italy we suggest our specific application, "AF Global Calculator (ItalY), based also on AIFA (Agenzia Italiana del Farmaco) restriction for Dabigatran's prescription.
DISCLAIMER : The author assumes no responsibility for use of this application and invites who use it to verify the results provided and adapt them to the clinical context.
The "AF Global Calculator (Europe)", on the Android platform, was developed entirely (drafting of the algorithm, technical development, graphics solutions) by Dr. Francesco Gemelli, Cardiologist in Rome.

Coronary artery disease is a disease of the artery caused by the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of the arteries that supply the myocardium. Angina pectoris (chest pain) and myocardial infarction (heart attack) are symptoms of and conditions caused by coronary heart disease.
Over 459,000 Americans die of coronary heart disease every year. In the United Kingdom, 101,000 deaths annually are due to coronary heart disease.
CardiomyopathyMain article: Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy literally means "heart muscle disease" (Myo= muscle, pathy= disease) It is the deterioration of the function of the myocardium (i.e., the actual heart muscle) for any reason. People with cardiomyopathy are often at risk of arrhythmia and/or sudden cardiac death.
Extrinsic cardiomyopathies – cardiomyopathies where the primary pathology is outside the myocardium itself. Most cardiomyopathies are extrinsic, because by far the most common cause of a cardiomyopathy is ischemia. The World Health Organization calls these specific cardiomyopathies:
Coronary artery disease
Congenital heart disease
Nutritional diseases affecting the heart
Ischemic (or ischaemic) cardiomyopathy
Valvular cardiomyopathy – see also Valvular heart disease below
Inflammatory cardiomyopathy – see also Inflammatory heart disease below
Cardiomyopathy secondary to a systemic metabolic disease
Intrinsic cardiomyopathies – weakness in the muscle of the heart that is not due to an identifiable external cause.
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) – most common form, and one of the leading indications for heart transplantation. In DCM the heart (especially the left ventricle) is enlarged and the pumping function is diminished.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM or HOCM) – genetic disorder caused by various mutations in genes encoding sarcomeric proteins. In HCM the heart muscle is thickened, which can obstruct blood flow and prevent the heart from functioning properly.
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) – arises from an electrical disturbance of the heart in which heart muscle is replaced by fibrous scar tissue. The right ventricle is generally most affected.
Restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) – least common cardiomyopathy. The walls of the ventricles are stiff, but may not be thickened, and resist the normal filling of the heart with blood.
Noncompaction Cardiomyopathy – the left ventricle wall has failed to properly grow from birth and such has a spongy appearance when viewed during an echocardiogram.
Cardiovascular diseaseMain article: Cardiovascular disease
Cardiovascular disease is any of a number of specific diseases that affect the heart itself and/or the blood vessel system, especially the veins and arteries leading to and from the heart. Research on disease dimorphism suggests that women who suffer with cardiovascular disease usually suffer from forms that affect the blood vessels while men usually suffer from forms that affect the heart muscle itself. Known or associated causes of cardiovascular disease include diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperhomocysteinemia and hypercholesterolemia

The two scores operate independently of one another, where the questions overlap with differences these are highlighted. The only point of note here is that the question “Clinical signs and symptoms of DVT (minimum of leg swelling and pain with palpation of the deep veins)” in the PE score and worth three points is replaced by the three questions relating to pain and swelling within the original DVT score. A tick on the question relating to tenderness along the deep veins and one or both of the questions relating to swelling (over 3cm... or of the whole leg) will allocate the three points correctly to the PE score. Of course if you are scoring a DVT then the score accumulates as you might expect.
If the text is too small simply tap it to get a larger view then tap again or press the 'back' button to dismiss. The references and information about the App are available via the menu button. Tapping the “Use this because..” will bring up the two level score outcomes. Suggestions are welcome. Suitable for general practitioners, community nurses, specialist nurses, registrars, other junior doctors and medical students.
1.2.2 Changed the layout a little so than now the NICE guidance is present at the bottom of the screen for ease of reference. Just scroll down to take a look.
It is suitable for use by general practitioners, community psychiatric nurses, community nurses midwives and trainee doctors or medical students, clinical psychologists and other mental health professionals.
Has support for Spanish French and Norwegian.
At last a version of Qrisk for android! This is the primary prevention risk scoring system based on the desktop version of Qrisk2-2013 (Copyright © 2008-13 ClinRisk Ltd. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED).
It works out the risk of having a myocardial infarction or stroke, it gives the 1 to 10 year risk as well as the Qriskage (QRISKage™ is © 2010-13 ClinRisk Ltd). This scoring system has greater validity than the modified Framingham score, please see in in App references.
This App uses the same algorithm as the original Qrisk desktop version (and their i phone version,) it is produced using the code available as open source software which implements the QRISK2®-2012 scores, released under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence, version 3. Please take time to read this information in the 'about' menu.
It will therefore faithfully reproduce the same scores as the original.
Unfortunately the Townsend to Postcode table that the desk top version uses to quantify deprivation is not accessible to mobiles (this goes for the ClinRisk ltd's i phone version too) and so I have used a slider bar where one can estimate deprivation. It can be turned off if desired. Click the 'null' tick box to remove this. Market towns are going to lie from the mid line to the upper fifth, and inner city tower blocks be in the lower fifth for example. If the 'null' value is set then deprivation plays no part in the assessment, this means that the more deprived you are the score will be underestimated by a few percent, and likewise over estimate your risk , again by a few percentage points, if the patient is more privileged.
This is intended for use by all health care professionals involved in assessing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risk. It is a primary prevention tool only. It will be of particular use to general practitioners when completing the QoF (Quality and Outcomes Framework) when assessing CVD risk, whichever clinical system be it systemOne or Emis, as the data can be entered whilst viewing other screens. It is not ideal for patients to use this to assess their own risk of heart attack nor stroke.
For UK General Practitioners I have added a 'Qof Correction' button, this runs the score again but sets the BP to 150/90 for the patients aged 80 and more and to 140/90 for those 79 years of age and less. The reason being that there is a reasonable opinion that lowering a 78 year old's BP to 140/90 or less is not always a good idea. This button thus calculates the corrected risk of heart attack or stroke if their BP were at the lower level. The idea being it provides another source of evidence that exception reporting is perhaps the best option.
It is validated for use in the United Kingdom. However the algorithm is said to have some use internationally and can act as a guide in other westernized societies.
It should be noted that this App is a tool and all decisions about a patient's health are the responsibility of the medical practitioner making the decision. I cannot accept any responsibility for its use or misuse.
Suitable for anyone involved in diabetes care be they doctors or nurses, community or hospital medics, medical students, dietitians, general practitioners, practice nurses, diabetes nurse specialists.
The App also has the diagnostic criteria for diabetes using HbA1c from the World Health Organisation (WHO), as well as some of the pitfalls of diagnosis as outlined by the referenced research. These three papers are the start of an intriguing argument about the merits of this diagnostic process. I think Farmer's subheading "Be aware of clinical circumstances in which results may mislead" sums it up nicely.
The diagnosis of diabetes section is accessed through the 'menu' button.
Patients need not worry themselves with this App.
Version 1.2 deals with a rounding up problem which was giving slightly non standard results, much to users chagrin, this version will only give expected results, please take time to rate it if you believe its improved from the 1 ratings.
The App also now incorporates its own key pad for a new feel and better landscape functionality.
Work out your 10 year risk of getting:
Act now, do not be afraid.
Take control and reduce your risk.
You influence your future health. Change it for the better.
Diabetes is a damaging disease with blindness, impotence,and amputation all possible. Heart attack and stroke often follow and if they do not kill you at first strike, then they can leave you seriously disabled.
We only have one life, prevention is so much better when there is no cure.
This app uses the best available science with the QRisk and Qdiabetes 2013 risk tools (copyright ClinRisk LTD) . Assess your 10 year risk, or that of your love ones.
If it is high then you may need to seek medical attention, but you can also change the major risk factors yourself.
If you smoke, run the app again with 'ex smoker' selected, see your risk fall, worried about weight gain on stopping smoking? Run it again a few pounds heavier, is your risk still lower than doing nothing? Run it again then with you 10 years older. Going to see your children through university? Worried about your parents seeing them get the grade?
As a doctor I see far too many people who have allowed their weight, smoking habits and bad diets, to wreck havoc with their bodies.
With this app take control or use it to persuade those that you love to take a healthier option.
Knowing your actual risk will enable you to take action, no need to guess or be vaguely aware that something is not good for you, enter the data and see what you need to change in your life.
The Qrisk tools are the industry standard methods of determining your risk of developing these dangerous diseases. Up and down the length of the UK your family doctors (GP's) use this same method, and the UK government is introducing a health check program to look at similar issues. All this power in the palm of your hand in your own app. Possibly the most important App you will own, find out what your 10 year risk is. Heart disease and stroke taken together are the commonest cause of death in the UK, and diabetes is one of the causes of developing the blockages in your arteries that make these conditions happen. Use the app to find your risk then the in App query buttons (?) to get some advice, or be taken to authoritative web sites (NHS Choices for e.g) for more in depth information on how to change your ways and reduce your risk.
Run the app again with a lower weight, or with you not smoking and see those risk score fall, what is your best strategy?
Maybe you will discover that your risk is already low! Well no need to continue worrying about your health then, as you are probably already doing the best you can. Enjoy your life, but look out for accidents!
This app is only relevant for people between the ages of 25 and 84. It is only truly validated for a UK population but might have some relevance and would certainly give an estimate of risk for subjects of any westernized industrial society.
Your risk is related to your age, sex, ethnicity, level of deprivation, smoking status, BMI, systolic blood pressure, cholesterol ratio with HDL (high density lipoproteins), whether you are already on a blood pressure medication, whether you have diabetes, renal (kidney) failure, rheumatoid arthritis, whether you have a relative with heart disease or stroke and whether you have atrial fibrillation (AF) or not. Diabetes Mellitus is predicated by family history, steroid usage.
This App uses the Qrisk algorithm devised by Nottingham university and is the copyright of ClinRisk Ltd, I am able to utilize the algorithm using the GNU Lesser General Public Licence, please see the in App menu for the full description of this licence. Also see the references section in which the authors explain why Qrisk is a more accurate method of determining risk than the Framingham algorithm.
This app is aimed at medical professionals particularly primary care professionals and includes the following scores.
Qrisk, CHAD2DS2_VASc and HAS-BLED scores, ABCD2, Wells, Epworth, and a glycated Hb converter with the WHO recommended diagnostic thresholds and pitfalls to diagnosis all via the in app menu system.
These scores are variously used in diabetes mellitus diagnosis, Atrial fibrillation stroke reduction assessments sleep apnoea and snoring assessments, prevention of heart attach myocardial infarction and cerebrovascular accidents as well as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) assessment and pulmonary embolus (PE) assessment via the combined Wells score, please read the in app information regarding this score. They may also help with QoF assesments (Quality and outcomes framework)
This is the free version look out for the paid version (coming soon) that will allow you to load your own photographs for a more personal experience out there when crafting your diagnoses!
