Taking up considerably less space than other similar scoring systems, this is aimed at the assessment of patients with non valvular atrial fibrillation. It provides a clean and simple to use tool to assess risk of stroke and medication induced bleeding. There is no decision support, use your local guidelines.
Scoring system for CHA2DS2VASc and HAS-BLED (HASBLED)
Aimed at General Practitioners, practice nurses, community nurses, useful for QoF (Quality and outcomes framework) as well
CHAD score CHADVASC CHAD2 CHAD2VASC2
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.

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 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.
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.
