Designed for working medical professionals, the Medical Abbreviations iphone app by QD Ideas is a quick and easy way to access over 1600 different medical abbreviations right from your iPhone or iPod touch.
Medical Abbreviations arranges its abbreviations by first letter, with those beginning with numbers or symbols coming before A. You can scroll up and down the list or simply touch the desired letter on the right hand side of the screen to jump to your desired section.
All of the abbreviations are defined in the simplest terms so that most of them can be read right from the list. However, if the definition is too long to show it all in the list, simply tap the abbreviation and you will be taken to a screen with the complete definition. Though the definitions are brief for times sake, they are by no means without depth as some give detailed information about where the abbreviation came from. For example, the abbreviation "applic" is defined as "Applicandus (Latin meaning 'to be applied')."
There is also a fast search feature in Medical Abbreviations that will search as you type. With this search feature, you can search abbreviations and definitions at the same time. This way, you can easily find the definition for an abbreviation or find the appropriate abbreviation pertaining to a specific condition.
Medical Abbreviations is constantly being updated and new abbreviations are added with each new edition. Also, Medical Abbreviations is a community-supported database which welcomes suggestions from their users.
Medical Abbreviations will help you find the abbreviation you are looking for almost instantly from whereever you may be. If you are in the medical field, this app might just prove to be an invaluable tool.
