LAS VEGAS—When your rapid-fire session is headlined, “There’s an App for That: Hand-Held Devices and Applications that You Should Know About,” does a real-time endorsement get any better than a laudatory tweet?
“Great talk by @ultrasoundREL about apps! Students check out MDCalc, VisualDx, AirwayEx, GURU, 1-minute US #ACEP16 #APPS” tweeted @tony_balda, the Twitter handle for Tony Balda, a medical student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
The session was a smorgasbord of recommendations for applications that can make life easier for emergency physicians. But before delving into apps that provide clinical updates, practice guidance or live translation services, presenter Resa Lewiss, MD, focused on a meditation app, “Stop, Breathe & Think,” meant to slow things down.
