The Colonoscopy Helper is the first smartphone app that provides a complete, step-by-step multi-media guidance for colonoscopy preparation. There are 13 reminders, spread over 10 days including reminders before and after the procedure. It navigates colonoscopy preparation with GPS-like precision with graphic illustrations, texts, and audio directions to ensure that the bowel prep is done just right. It also reminds important medication(s) that may need to be adjusted, held, and resumed at appropriate time and interval. Finally, it alerts important symptoms following colonoscopy that may require a prompt medical attention. Colonoscopy Helper is really a very helpful and essential companion to having colonoscopy examination.
Colonoscopy is an examination that enables a careful evaluation of the lining of the colon (large intestine) for abnormalities. It is performed by inserting a colonoscope which is made with a flexible tube with a camera at the end. During colonoscopy, this instrument is inserted into the anus and slowly advanced inside the colon. It is a test commonly utilized as a diagnostic tool in colon cancer screening. In addition to diagnosing colon cancer, colonoscopy is often used to evaluate gastrointestinal bleeding (GI bleeding), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease.
Available also in Spanish.

An App (EUS) dedicated to endoscopic ultrasound education has been developed by Drs Shyam Varadarajulu, Paul Fockens and Robert Hawes. This App is a “must-have” for all endoscopists, pulmonologists and gastroenterology/pulmonology trainees interested in EUS. The EUS App is available for free download in the Google Play Store.
The App is compatible for use with Android phones. The key features of the EUS App are
(1) Teaching videos (with audio) on how to perform Diagnostic EUS,
(2) Teaching videos (with audio) for Interventional EUS,
(3) Video Atlas (no audio) of common diseases (streamed from YouTube),
(4) Lecture slides: the iPhone and iPad can be connected to a projector and the slides be used for lectures,
(5) What is New in EUS: quarterly literature review on the latest developments in EUS,
(6) Cytopathology section: a dedicated video lecture teaching endosonographers how to process and interpret FNA specimens will be streamed from YouTube and lecture slides on EUS cytopathology,
(7) Educational Resources section: provides information on TNM cancer staging, role of antibiotics and anticoagulation in EUS-FNA/interventions and medication dosages for celiac plexus interventions and,
(8) Conferences: information on meetings dedicated to EUS.
This App is not a one-time development. It will be periodically updated and revised. Future developments will include sections dedicated to Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and Updated videos and literature review.
This cooperation will enable customers to control all key parameters for Aesculap endoscopic devices from the central control unit of the OR Integration system TEGRIS® – without the need to make changes at device level.
Simplify workflows and improve efficiency: The exceptionally intuitive user interface supports the processes in the operating room.
The benefits at a glance:
Patient safety enhanced: Direct access to accurate patient data, integration of surgical safety checklists, simple control of the entire operating room.
Integration in existing systems: The software is compatible with a large number of standard formats and hospital information systems.
Your investment is secure: The modular system can be adapted to suit your requirements.
Enhanced communication and collaboration: Transmit live images from the operating room to lecture rooms, conference rooms or medical practices.
There are three areas of educational content within the app.
1. Trauma Scenarios : You can scroll through images and click any scenario to view. Once the scenario and the image populates the screen, you then click the screen and the details of the image pops up. From there, you click next page , where you get a full write up on the topic.
2. AAST Organ injury scale - permission was granted by the AAST to use the scale. It is a great resource for medical students, residents and attendings.
3.Trauma Quiz - Several multiple choice questions with a scoring system. Your performance will be tracked by gamecenter .
The Surgery Education Network ( S.E.N) is an edu-social site. ( www.surgres.net ) Share – Engage - Learn- Integrate Our platform has enabled students of surgery to come together and educate each other. S.E.N facilitates the exchange of information by enabling users to provide educational content. The content stimulates members to join discussions, respond to blogs, start forums, add videos etc. As members interpret content and add their own individual content, the entire community has the opportunity to learn. We all share a desire to continue our surgical education at any level. We believe that medical education can be transformed using web-based and mobile technology. We have utilized the cases on the network and incorporated them into an app to further enhance mobile learning. These are high yield real cases presented in a concise manner. We believe when presented in such a format retention of the information improves. In addition, may such apps do not have the images in addition to the pertitent case questions. There is always room for more cases and as S.E.N grows we will continue to update the app with more relevant cases. Enjoy.
For Physicians and Nurses:
The app provides direct access to the Cooper Transfer Center which contains information pertinent to transferring a patient under the care of a physician to Cooper. The transfer center can facilitate patients being transferred to the Trauma, Cardiac, Neurologic, Obstetric, Pediatric or any service provided by Cooper.
Also contained within the app are resources for the families of patients being transferred to Cooper. Contact numbers, maps and directions are available.
Additional links to all service lines offered by Cooper are included within the app.
For EMS Providers:
A quick reference guide to protocols utilized by agencies under the medical direction of Cooper. Also contained within the app is access to the latest CDC Trauma Triage Guidelines and one-touch access to the on-line medical command base.
Thanks to the Department of Surgery at Lehigh Valley health Network for their support of this app. I would also like to thank Ali Salim, MD, FACS, Associate Professor of Surgery, Residency Program Director, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for his support.
The app has 28 categories ( e.g Trauma, ) and subcategories. These cards are brief pertinent info on given topics. You also have the opportunity to add your own card.
The app is brought to you by the Surgery Education Network ( www.surgres.net). It is a free service designed to provide a platform for interactive educational pursuits in the field of surgery. We facilitate the exchange of ideas.
