* The original emergency medicine app, first released in 2011.
* Persistently ranked in the top 100 paid medical apps worldwide.

Bedside EM is an easy-to-navigate tool containing the various medication lists, algorithms, decision rules, clinical policies and core content most often looked up by emergency care providers during shifts.

Also used by urgent care, internal medicine, family medicine, ICU and prehospital providers. Great for teaching too!!

An evidence-based and up-to-date app that works on both your iPhone AND iPad (no internet required). Continuously updated and expanded.

So why continue buying paperback references or monthly in-app subscriptions year after year when for the price of dinner at the hospital you can purchase Bedside EM now and get all future updates... for free!?!?
