App Reviews

Free iPhone Apps posted a list of 10 free iPhone apps for Physicians. Scanning the list I think many of these would be useful for paramedics. The apps on the list that are probably the most useful to Paramedics include:

1. Medscape

2. Epocrates – I use the Blackberry version of this app

3. MedCalc

4. Medical Radio

See the full list and read a little about each iPhone app at
