"fantastic for a review when rushing to a consult." -- Casey Park
MD on Call is already trusted by thousands of physicians, residents and medical students around the world. We’ve been there; At 3 AM, you don’t feel like going through a textbook or a long UpToDate article; you just want to get things done.
"If you have ever needed a quick reference to learn on the fly or been stumped by a late night call while cross-covering and you are willing to spend a few dollars to avoid that feeling, you should consider this app."
“It has all those handy little things that drug guides and medical references just don’t capture concisely.”
“I would pay at least double the cost for this handy little reference.”
Dr Jessica Otte, drottematic blog
junior residents, interns and medical students
In medical school, we learn a lot about diseases and the basis for their management. However, we are traditionally less exposed to apparently easy problems like pain, nausea or hypokalemia. Quite often, those issues are brought to the attention of the nursing staff in the evening. At that time, the treating team is away and you're on call, running all over the hospital.
MD on Call gives you tips on how to QUICKLY assess and manage (acutely) common problems so you can go on assessing the next patient, or to your room to get some well deserved sleep. -- it is NOT meant to replace a textbook --

Ratings and Reviews
The interface is a little rough and could certainly use some refinement. More troubling is that many recommendations are not adequately referenced to practice standard guidelines, and some references are rather obscure. Some data is just plain wrong, for instance the conversion from TDF 25 mcg/hr to po morphine is stated to be 100 mg/day (no reference is listed for this conversion)...all my resources say 50 mg/day. Hmmm...
Great app...almost there
The only thing missing from this app in my opinion is an "edit" function which is why I gave it a 4. I would like to be able to edit/modify the existing vignettes AND add my own vignettes. The developer is a busy resident, but responded to an email from me stating this was in the future...but they "want to do it right." I use this app regularly and would highly recommend it to med students, residents, or physicians (once the edit feature is present).
I've been using this application for the last few weeks. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Although I've been doing calls for almost 4 months now, there's still some situations where I could use some help. This App is almost like having a senior resident helping you out. I also really like the Labs section. I've been using it a lot, even when I'm not on call. Strongly recommended
