The Lancet - Sites of Interest

Sites of interest
My first attachment as a clinical student was with a gastrointestinal surgery firm. How well I remember consulting hastily scrawled pieces of paper before the ward round in preparation: and how I wish apps such as Abdominal Examination had existed. It provides a concise overview of abdominal history and examination, complete with pictures. The only major problem is the omission of gynaecological causes of pain. Peace of mind on the surgical ward round is £5·49 from iTunes.
A surprise hit, the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network app provides pocket-sized summaries of evidence-based treatment recommendations. It is available free for iPhone and Android—no doctor's phone is complete without it.
