Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) app is now available for iPhone. It guides you through the algorithms for the urgent treatment of acute coronary syndrome, bradycardia, tachycardia, edema, hypotension, shock, electric cardioversion, hypothermia, pulseless arrest and suspected stroke. While it is obviously not useful during a code, it is a good reference to check from time to time. These algorithms can easily be forgotten, especially if you don’t practice or encounter such patients regularly.
ACLS is priced at 4.99, which is quite reasonable if you ask me.
Here are some screen shots of this application:
