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 (available in the full version only)
-Small application size
-Supporting devices with different screen size and orientation, including tablets
-English and Russian languages
-Manual language switching (available in the full version only)
-E-mailing a detailed test report (available in the full version only)
-No advertisement and banners

The app allows storing all crucial details, and for as many users as you like too, each having their own dataset. The details you can store include date and time, site and position, systolic and diastolic pressure, heart rate, weight (in kg or lb). Each entry can be stored with an optional comment (all versions), and a set of text tags (version 1.5 or newer).
The app also provides some essential analysis, presented in a quick overview screen and a set of charts. The overview screen summarises minimum, maximum and mean values over a pre-defined period of time, and time of day, with indication of long-term trend. As an extension to the basic analysis, the app provides multiple charts which can use all data points separately or daily averages (configurable). All data is assessed based either on the North American JNC7 classification, or the European ESC classification, which is configurable.
We believe in data freedom and, unlike most apps of this type, we provide the ability to export your data in the most common machine-readable formats: CSV, XML and JSON. You can also provide your doctor with all of your data in advance of a visit, simply by sending a web page-like (HTML) report via email. All of those export formats can also be uploaded (and downloaded from) to Dropbox and/or Google Drive in the Pro version. You can easily backup and restore data either in the app's native format or using CSV.
The Pro version additionally supports importing data from the following wireless, Bluetooth(tm) enabled devices:
↪ A&D UA-767PBT
↪ A&D UA-851PBT
↪ A&D UC-321PBT
↪ A&D UC-324PBT
You can disable ads by purchasing a Pro-version license key in Android Market from within the application.
NOTE: Please send bug reports, questions and feature requests directly to email@example.com or through our Facebook page.
NOTE: This application *is not* a blood pressure monitor and thus will not allow *making* a reading of your blood pressure. You need to use your own calibrated and certified BP meter for that (most sold worldwide are), or ask your doctor to make a reading for you.

This App contains the two Wells scores that aid the diagnosis of low risk deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolus (PE). It is for use by suitably trained medics and as always with these scores they are only an aid and should always be used in conjunction with local guidelines.
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.
This is a simple to use and clean looking depression scoring system produced with permission form Pfizer who hold the copyright. It is aimed at health professionals to use as a consultation tool. There is no decision support, one should use local guidelines. It is one of several new Apps for primary care. If there is sufficient interest then I will develop it further, Suggestions are welcome.
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.
This App is the ABCD2 stroke risk assessment score giving the risk of stroke at 2 days and as I am sure you know the score also reflects the relative risk at 90 days. This App is aimed at any medic involved in stroke risk assessment and particularly general practitioners in the UK. It predicts the risk of stroke after a TIA (transient ischaemic (ischemic if American) attack). It is suitable for GPs, registrars, other trainee doctors, community nurses and matrons, and the keen medical student. Deliberately there is no decision support but a couple of links to the research, to whet your apatite.
So this is what you have been waiting for, all your favorite medical scoring systems in one program. But lo! I hear you cry whats so new? Well rather than a boring drop down menu to select from you have them all on a rotating cube for ease of access, simply rotate the cube to the score you want and press the select tile and it will launch.
This app is aimed at medical professionals particularly primary care professionals and includes the following scores.
Qrisk (2013 algorithm only, will update to 2014 when get time), 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!
Cardiac and cerebral risk assessment tool. (CCRAT)
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.
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.
This converts glycosylated haemoglobin (Hb or hemoglobin if you are American) (HbA1c or A1C) from the old percentage (NGSP)units to the new mmol/mol (IFCC)units and vice versa. It allows entry of a value and the App will convert it accordingly.
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.
This App is designed for suitably qualified medical professionals when assessing day time somnolence. Currently it provides a score only, if there is sufficient interest then I will add some decision support, for now consult your local guidelines. It is aimed mainly at primary care, and is the first batch of several scoring support tools. This is a simple tool, using minimal storage space, to be used within the consultation. Suitable for general practitioners, community nurses, medical students and registrars for example.
