"palmEM is an excellent, rapid point-of-care reference perfectly designed for the time crunch of the emergency department."

"Doc APProvED: The relentless search for an emergency medicine app that does it all will inevitably lead to palmEM...a great quick reference for the price."
—Emergency Medicine News

"There is so much in here I don’t know where to begin. The app really seems to cover everything...Could I enthuse about this any more???"

"I was paying hundreds of dollars a year for [another app] but I’ve dumped that now. PalmEM is cheaper, prettier, faster and it’s calculators are easier to use in a hurry."

"Its succinct design works well with either the iPhone or iPad, and because it is a universal app, users needn’t be torn choosing between either well-optimized versions."

Great POC resource!

Absolutely worth the money! As a Family Med doc in clinic, this is my one-stop shop for the occasional ED-type patient that somehow schedules an acute appt with me instead of going to an ED. It allows me to perform quick interventions while coordinating transfer. I’ve used it three times in the past month alone as a super quick bedside reference for calculating BSA for a burn patient, splinting a metacarpal fracture, and remembering the rules for clearing a C-spine collar. The info is very well organized and is limited to the pearls that we need to remember quickly in that moment. Shout out to Bret P. for recommending it.

Great Content, Okay Interface

Even though this app is about the core content, UI is everything for mobile applications. Please incorporate the standard iOS gestures, such as swiping from the left side to the right to go "back" a page.

Detailed though complex*

It's useful but for me it is confusing. It seems more like a general overview rather than going in depth for each subject. There are categories, subcategories and details. For example: ABC's: Adult Quick Med List: Lidocane: mg/kg IV. Maybe it's because I'm not a doctor or nurse but I don't know what all the 'details' such as the Pulseless/Stable/May repeat VT/VF and such means. Seems like it would be a good resource for those in the medical field, however.
