Labs & Formulas app review: basic information

Reviews

Introduction

Labs & Formulas is a simple yet wonderfully designed medical reference app for iPhone and iPad that provides more than a thousand different normal lab values as well as a host of different calculators you can use to quickly perform complex calculations and assess patients.

As far as lab value apps go I would say that this one makes a fairly middle-of-the-road contribute to the genre because it does provide some great basic content but doesn’t really go above and beyond what you would expect to find in comparable developments.

Values and Calculators Up the Wazoo!

This app provides you with lots of different lab values so you can easily reference them and see what the normal values are before comparing them with the test results obtained from patients or subjects you are studying.

Within this app you’ll also find a vast and extensive collection of lab calculators including the Apgar Score, Glomerular Filtration Rate for adults and pediatric, Wind Chill & Heat Index, Glasgow Coma Scale, and lots more.

Bookmark Your Required Values

Labs & Formulas also provides some basic unit conversions for weight, length, height, and so on, and you can add your most frequently used values to your Bookmarks list for quick and easy future reference.

What’s more, the developer promises that more features and calculators will be added with subsequent updates but I would tend to take this app as it is in its current form without relying on the promises of developers who may or may not follow through.
