Android App Review: Medical Abbreviations


So you're reading your patient medical file...  It's writen that your patient is " CCF, COPD, HTN with IDD that contributed to a CVI.  He is now taking Synthroid TID and Ativan IM PRN.  He is now T.S.T.H. " How will you establish the correct treatment plan if you can not understand the diagnostic?  The BBC repported that 5% of medical errors were related to abbreviations in the file that were not understood.  The inter-juge accor for an abbreviation in non-medical health professional is only 30 to 63%.  Enough to create a lot of confusion and mistakes.  This App will help you understand the medical abbreviations in English, but also their French, Spanish, German, Polish, Russian and Dutch version.

  2. After a few short weeks you get the hang of the abbreviations and those random letters become second nature. MedAbbreviations would have definitely made my life easier during that initial period. Plus, I wouldn’t have felt dirty from using a law firms catalog for medical abbreviations. In this post I’ll review MedAbbreviations (v1.2) and mention some of the other medical abbreviation apps for the iPhone.
