This issue of UBC’s “This Changed My Practice” was authored by our own Dr. Dan Kim! Read about his success in treating SVT here: This Changed My Practice.
AppThis week, we’re talking about the new ACEP Toxicology Antidote app. It’s available for both iOS and Android.
This app delivers basic information about indications and dosing for most standard antidotes. It’s very easy to use, allowing for searching or browsing of all the listed antidotes. This would be an exceptional resource for any residents studying for their exam.
For many of the antidotes, a call to poison control would still be indicated, making the app superfluous. In fact, there is a large button right in the app that calls poison control – but unfortunately, only the American one!
However, it’s easy access to dosing for many standard antidotes. And even though the dosing is American, there is a simple way to add notes, and they integrate easily into the information about each antidote.
And best of all, it’s free! Give it a try.
