A comprehensive app with easy to navigate features. The app contains treatment guidelines, clinical decision rules, drug dosing, and a paediatric section.

Oxford Handbook of Emergency Medicine
This app is from the internationally recognised Oxford Handbook series and mirrors the paper version of the fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Emergency Medicine. This contains some good summaries on approaches to common emergency medicine presentations and gives practical advice for those starting off in ED. Some areas are highly detailed and others lack specifics, which may be a reflection of the differing practices and in UK EDs.
