The Pocket Atlas of Emergency Ultrasound is for the clinician who uses ultrasound in the emergency department or other clinical settings. This app provides a quick and handy guide to all the body systems evaluated with ultrasound. This app contains 443 images including photographs showing where to place the ultrasound probe, the actual ultrasound images and explanatory anatomical drawings. The images look great on your mobile device. No internet connection needed to view the full app. It is all ready for quick image and information retrieval. This app is easy to navigate, allowing you to browse the contents or easily search the entire app for words in text or figures. This app is derived from the pocket guide to the book Emergency Ultrasound, the most widely used reference and educational tool on the subject. This handy app helps physicians accurately perform and interpret ultrasound images in a busy emergency care setting. The images can be found easily in the app and then used to compare with what is visible on the actual patient scan.
If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you’ll notice that I believe an app’s navigation is one of the most important things to me. It can make or break an app, and as I’ve said in the past, all the information in the world won’t help me if I can’t find it or access it easily. I’m delighted to say, the developers of this app hit a home run with this one. Navigation through the entire app is a breeze as well; extremely user friendly to not only jump from image to image and back to text, but also to move from sections within a chapter. And the clincher is the search function. Pocket Atlas of Emergency Ultrasound lets you specify whether you want to search through text or just images, and when you do so, it highlights the search term just like it would on a desktop.
