Epocrates Bugs + Drugs

Epocrates
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Epocrates Bugs + Drugs is a free antimicrobial susceptibility reference that provides geolocated bacterial resistance data to support clinical decision-making at the point of care. Historically, this information is gathered from hospital in-patient data. This app goes beyond the hospital setting and help clinicians identify superbugs in areas their patients live by incorporating lab data from over 15 million patient records sourced from athenahealth¹s cloud-based EHR.

Key features:
· List of bacteria observed in urine, blood, and skin for geolocated communities across the country
· Antibiotic drug options organized by organism susceptibility
· Epocrates dosing and contraindication content with link to the complete monograph

NOTES:
1. This app requires iOS7.
2. Links to Epocrates Rx drug monograph excerpts are provided for convenience, and do not represent therapeutic recommendations. Numerous considerations, including patient characteristics, route of therapy, synergy of combination therapies, dosing considerations, and cost, factor into antimicrobial choices.

If you like this app, please check out the Epocrates app, which includes a complete drug reference, drug-drug interaction checker, pill ID, pill pictures, dosing calculators, disease content and diagnostic tools. Epocrates is the #1 medical application among U.S. physicians, used by over 1 million healthcare professionals.
