ATTN: Mobile Dynamed Users

You can now register the same Dynamed serial number on up to 5 devices of the same operating system.
From Skyscape:

For example, if you have registered DynaMed on your iPhone, you can install it to your iPad using the same serial number. When you install Skyscape/DynaMed on the iPad, all of the resources that were registered to your iPhone are automatically installed. This behavior will also apply to the Android and BlackBerry platforms.

Serial numbers have a shelf life of one year, regardless of how many devices on which it is registered. Contact the library for a new serial number if Dynamed has stopped working for you.

Dynamed provides clinically-organized summaries with references for nearly 3,200 diseases and condition topics and over 800 drugs. It is available free to faculty, staff and students of LSUHSC.

Mobile Clinical Orthopedic Exam

Looking for a mobile app to diagnose musculoskeletal injuries and disorders? Clinically Relevant Technologies has developed an application for both iPhone and Android which includes descriptions, demonstrative video clips, and references from the medical literature for over 200 musculoskeletal diagnostic tests.

What I like about it is that every test is referenced back to a clinical citation. Tests must meet three main criterion for inclusion:

1) The test must be described/referenced in a peer-reviewed medical journal
2) The test must be used in the evaluation and diagnosis of musculoskeletal pathology
3) The test would be performed by the clinician or as part of clinical evaluation (not include laboratory or diagnostic imaging tests for example).

At $39.99, this app isn’t the cheapest, but as iPhone App review points out, “an equivalent text would cost several-fold more and cannot offer the same portability and ease of use”.
