Quick reference for on-call trauma related to fractures and dislocations
This app is the ideal complement to any student, resident, fellow, or attending taking general orthopaedic trauma call. The app has a simple and intuitive user interface separated into either dislocations or fractures and organized by bone, joint, or region. Each topic is then divided into the same four sub-topics: facts, image, classify, and treat. With an easy-to-read bullet format, the user can quickly glean the most critical facts about a particular fracture, answer common “pimp” questions, understand how to interpret the radiology, and review various classification systems for a particular injury. One of the most useful features are the images which include very clear lines, arrows, and circles overlying normal and injury radiographs to teach the user how to evaluate and interpret injury films. Overall, the material appears to be consistent with most other orthopaedic trauma texts, although no references are provided.
