Whats on my iPhone DOCTORS EDITION Medical Apps and More

Whats on my iPhone? DOCTORS EDITION: Medical Apps and More Hey guys today, we are getting personal Im gonna be sharing whats on my phone and talking about some of the apps that I think helped me as a doctor on a day to day basis I was on call last night and my phone died and So then I realized when I was picking up my phone and looking at it you start realizing Which apps do you feel like you cant live without or what are the ones that you use all the time? So Ill share these with you Violin Okay, so lets dive right in okay first glance you can tell its kind of like having a messy room I just have so many notifications, and I try to manage them, but then theyre always popping up and at this point honestly I just ignore them But Im more aware of it now that you guys are seeing it. So, calendar, contacts, Google Maps, all these kind of boring ones Uber you guys know that I use a ton, notes I use all the time to write down ideas for YouTube articles mostly Reminders if there are things I need to go home and read about in clinic, so… oh yeah!

So, clinic I had read about these things. I checked them off. It always makes me feel good to check things off Next Dropbox, I put everything up in the cloud guys I lost like all these violin performances so all these Important articles that I had I lost them all on an external hard drive Because it got shaken up – anyway, point is, it really sucked it. Now I put everything in the cloud. Next is Evernote I used this a ton in medical school You can type up all of your notes in your computer And then when youre on the board you can flip through your notes and actually see them Plus you can add to them if you wanted to Which is a bit of a time saver rather than adding to your notes when you get home iBooks is awesome.

I have all my textbooks on here, so like cheat sheet, medications, I can just have at the tip of my finger Lets see Anything that I would want, like Cecils Medicine – um, some of you have been asking what textbook I like for internal medicine. This is one of my favorites Its having a tough time uploading so Ill leave it for now but great textbook to have MKSAP and this New England Journal of Medicine knowledge plus. These are cue card apps. So theyre basically question banks you can go through them.

Theyve got some teaching and learning – helps you just keep up to date, I guess I use it mostly when Im like waiting for a bus Walking somewhere, waiting for a clinic when like your doctor staff is late So its more for me like a waiting type of learning. Ok so then I got like communication, media, that kind of stuff, for two lines. And, in there, like Twitter I just recently got Im not super great on it yet But I get a lot of interesting stuff from other doctors who post it, so Im mostly someone who just reads stuff on Twitter right now Facebook, Im sure you guys all know what that is This calculator Oh, this is awesome, quick calculations that you need to do in the hospital all the time so if someone has an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation Theres a score called chads2 That you do all the time to see whats their chance of having a stroke – do we need to put them on a blood thinner? So its just easy you can remember this but sometimes Its just nice to flip through on your phone, so: does this person have heart failure?

No. Do they have high blood pressure? Yes Are they over 75? Lets say yes. Have diabetes?

No. And, have they had a stroke? Yes so theyve got every single year an 8.5 chance of having a stroke if they didnt have treatment So, you know, thats useful information to tell a patient I can sometimes show them how we calculated this and help them make a decision Next, Up To Date – this, hands down, I use the most as a doctor, on the wards, in clinics, everywhere Im able to read about different diseases, so lets see, I was just reading about rheumatoid arthritis because Im in a rheumatology rotation right now and this just gives you really reliable excellent quality information that I feel good using so Super useful during the day yeah, thats one that, if I dont have my phone, I really miss the most Instagram Definitely hit me up there. I get a lot of requests I actually try to answer a lot of your quest in your comments, and Im obviously still pretty far behind on some of them But I will get around to it so find me there and I do all my stories and QampampAs Messenger and emails Classic stuff, just ways of talking to people. The bottom bar I prioritize the Whatsapp because in the hospital we use lots of Whatsapp groups and so we actually use it a ton.

Alright, next page! So YouTube apps, actually, I dont know if you guys know they have a creators app and its a way that I can see all of your comments when Im on the go during the day so I can like them and read them, anyway Its really nice, and I love seeing your comments when they pop up on my phone Okay, so then we get to the medical folder, so these are very specific apps I use them sometimes not like on an everyday basis, but say weve got one called journal club. Now, as doctors there are tons of papers that come out all the time and were supposed to keep up to date on all this new information. Sometimes you know you can just use that Up To Date app I showed you, but other times you want to actually see those trials and read them yourself These are summaries of those trials so I paid money to get this app and I think its super useful, so lets see Theres this new trial, yeah, the adrenal trial Everyones talking about – its like the hot topic in ICU right now – so you can click on there theyve got a whole summary.

You can skim through it see about the important issues, and its just yeah. Its a time-saver, thats for sure What else have we got in here – so then there are kind of lots of other medical apps that help create scores that will tell you if its more likely that a patient has this disease or not So its not like a slam dunk, like, if you could just plug in a bunch of numbers and say BAM! This person has this disease, great – there would be Dr. Google. I would be out of business but it doesnt really do that, so like, you can go in here look at some of the symptoms plug them in, itll help you make a decision, come up with numbers to say someones more likely to have this or not What else do we have in here, but, ones that help with prescriptions and dosing, What anticoagulants or what blood thinner should you choose based on you know scenarios?

Oh Thicker One! This is kind of fun Its like its like Instagram sort of for doctors People can put up pictures about cases that theyve seen. Wow, so this is a picture of looks like a tumor on someones finger there general surgeon put it up.

Thats a bit shocking I thought it was like a raisin at first Anyway, so you can have conversations about that. I dont usually participate, but sometimes its fun to scroll through and see what people have posted. Eponyms. So, this is everywhere in medicine.

So, eponyms are basically these old guys like hundreds of years ago, who found out about a disease and named the disease or a physical finding after themselves so they dont name it something obvious. They name is their name, so eponyms – lets see, if you go in about ear, nose and throat like Bozzolo sign. Bozzolo sign.

Ive never heard of that, so lets see what that is – aortic regurgitation, pulsatile nasal mucosa Oh, I think I actually have heard of that, but why did you call it Bozzolo sign? Like that? Thats crazy. Its not something youre gonna remember and people ask you: whats the name for this sign? And its just thats just pure memorization, so these type of apps are just kind of fun honestly I dont use it a ton.

I dont like study from it or anything. Okay, then Ive got like my extra folder Its basically just a bunch of stuff that Apple provides you that I didnt really want to get rid of and so it just kind of sits in that folder, and I never really look at it. What else? The stuff folder. Okay.

This is basically like that closet in your house where you just shove everything in there, and you kind of forget about it. And its just a way of cleaning up. Thats my stuff folder.

I have some good stuff in there, but theres stuffthings that I dont like open up very often anyway Lets see – Bitmoji! You guys know I love bitmojis gif keyboard thats just fun. I just send it to friends just cause..as jokes home budget, oh! Okay, so my dad got me to download this app.

Apparently its really good. Im supposed to use it. I havent been using it. I think I will start doing it. laughs LastPass, oh so this is supposed to be: you have one password, it lets you into this area and then it keeps all of your passwords there. The big thing is you just cant forget that one password and guess what I did?

I forgot it. So I figured I would make a new password, super secure, and then I just I didnt write it down. I completely forgot it so now I cant access it at all…and out of shame, I just keep that app there Um, next, just kind of random – oh Hopper!

That is a great app. This is like an app to help you save money when youre traveling so Im actually going to Oslo this summer, so in Norway this summer, to visit my friend whos getting married, so I was tracking that trip to find out whens the best time for me to book that trip? Anyway, so this one, it should fetch the latest price, but lets see how long it takes for this bunny to run Too long. Okay. Well abort that plan and…but anyway, its a good app to check out.

Choisie! I love this! Okay, so Im a huge fan of board games and just playing card games and stuff with friends So this is one of these apps that helps choose who goes first in a game. Say say youve got three people in this game. So, Ill use my three fingers – so each person would put one finger on the screen – oh!

One wouldnt finger on the screen and you are waiting to see which one it picks and the thumb gets to go first also, you can use it if you have groups – so say, you know, you got four people in the group, and you dont want to have to, you know, play favorites. So you put the four fingers down and its gonna decide whos in which group, so now we know the groups Ooh, Snapchat is in the stuff folder. So, I used to be a huge fan of Snapchat I used it all the time, honestly now I just use a lot of Instagram, and I dont really use it anymore, so it kind of went into that stuff folder.

Sorry guys, find me on Instagram instead. Ayway, so that is about it. Thats whats on my phone.

Protip by the way, we carry these everywhere. They get really gross. So wipe these off kind of like your hands when youre wiping off with Purell, do the same with your phone. Do you really want to think about where this has been, everything that its touched? Its kind of gross after a while.

Anyway, on a positive note let me know if you have an awesome app that you love, maybe one that youve made? Let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear about it, otherwise Ill be chatting with you guys next week, and oh! Ive got a new type of article that Im gonna be releasing next week Im super excited about it. I wont tell you anything more at this point, but check it out next week – ok, bye for now guys!
