This app allows users to calculate the total daily morphine milligram equivalents (MME) that a patient is taking, based on type of opioid analgesic, strength, and quantity. Multiple types of opioid analgesics can be included in the total daily MME calculation. An alert is displayed for total daily MME ≥ 100, indicating an increased risk for overdose. The app is for use by prescribing clinicians only; it may be of use to nurses and pharmacists. Additionally, it is intended for use in the ambulatory care setting and does not include intravenous formulations of medications. Among the other disclaimers with regard to use of this app is the following:

THIS TOOL IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN: (A) END-OF-LIFE CARE; (B) CHILDREN, DUE TO UNPREDICTABLE METABOLISM AND RISK FOR POSSIBLE HARM; (C) CONVERSION FROM ONE OPIOID TO A DIFFERENT OPIOID.
