This a great new app developed by Free Radical Software for the iPhone which can calculate even the most complex ABG parameters.
The interface is very cool and smart in that it uses the iPhone’s and iPod Touch’s flick scrolling technology making a one page calculator that gives the results in the same page looking like an ABG slot machine!
See how it looks here;
The calculator can analyze even complex disorders such as mixed conditions, acute versus chronic, and primary versus secondary compensations.
Not only that, but also input is included for the Sodium and Chloride for calculation of the anion gap which will let us narrow down the diagnosis of metabolic acidosis disorders.
And the coolest feature is that when you tilt the device in landscape mode it will tranform into a Davenport graph with the result dot plotted and pinpointed on it!
Some short monographs about the various disorders also included but these should be little more detailed with more information about the basics of acid base disorders to make this app perfect. Some bugs and errors noticed in the first version were appropriately corrected in the latest update.
This is certainly the best ABG calculator that we have seen so far on the iPhone and iPod Touch and if you frequently calculate ABGs then forget about that ABG expert colleague and look no further than this app.
