Medical info & terms that save lives & improve health
I live in a rural area, where some of my best friends probably tolerate me, simply because of my ability & willingness to read, look up & explain things. Our primary care clinics are ran by nurses, with few speciality physicians available, one day/mth, by referal. Things quickly done in cities are very long trips & big ordeals from Gods county. This app has been a lifesaver, providing info that’s enabled a better understanding of possible health issues, diagnosis & the ability to then discuss & ask questions at the next medical visit. To have some ability to make informed decisions about healthcare. Above all, it’s provided, understandable info that multiple friends have desperately needed & used, after test & treatments were ordered, that gave them reason to choose to give up, cancel appointments & avoid useless efforts, & pass in peace at home. This lil app provided info that has saved lives of those I love, thru understanding terms which in turn provided hope, treatment & cure. There are things that can still be tweaked, & continually improved, that is always part of any successful endeavor, but it’s a lifesaving lil app already.
Helps me tremendously!
In the last 1 1/2 years I have used this application several times a week. My health took a bad turn and I have read so many of my medical records that have many words that I just don't know the meaning of. I'm sure my doctors or their nurses would find me to be both annoying and time consuming if I were to call every time I wanted to know what some medical word meant. This dictionary has been a tremendous asset to helping me understand exactly what my test results and various conditions mean to my health. I honestly don't know how I could ever keep up with knowing what's going on with my health if I had to either call or email my doctor then wait for a response or go to a library to look up all the words. That's if the library even has a medical dictionary. I'd give this app 10 stars if I could.
I had colon cancer surgery in March!
This is very great app ! I read about my colon and very easy to understand! I had surgery in Japan ( husband Japanese)and my doctor explained in English and Japanese but this app went into very easily understand details !! It’s great for me to review the detail information! As languages barrier for my complete understanding of what was happening in my colon! Still seeing my doctor but this helped me to understand more!surgery seems to be successful as of now !!really appreciate the well informed material in this app!!must for ones who want to know more on their illness!!Thankyou so much!!
It's amazing how much information is in this app! As I'm using it it reminds me of using a computer. You have to remind yourself that your only using a phone. I've been diagnosed with COPD and could not finish reading all this little app has on it. So I bookmarked the topic, and will return to try to complete my reading of all the information. Keep updating this app so that the immense amount of knowledge it has can be kept as current as possible. I recommend this app to anyone desiring a source of accurate medical and health information with no limit.
In depth cross-reference with multiple sources' listing
It is meaningless, in this day and age, to limit information. This app does not do so. If I can't get a good connotative understanding, along with a hard denotation, something is wrong with my noggin. Excellent source. I would highly recommend spending the extra buck or two and downloading the entire set. I recommend this app and those other related to it. I will use this one again in the future, and look forward to doing so. Five stars, and a hearty hi-ho.
I am going to school for a degree in medical terminology and billing and coding. This has been a tremendous amount of help since I have no actual books or anything to look at. Everything is online and this app makes everything 10x more easier than using google or trying to find it in my online textbooks, which close as you find what you want and go to insert it where it belongs. Excellent idea and dictionary!!
Better than I Expected
Great app, whenever I want to look up a term, its very useful. It has a lot of information on the words, and is very professional, and cites sources. One thing I would recommend is maybe a different section for random terms, maybe words of the day (or something like that), or possibly terms sorted by alphabetical order so you don’t have to search for terms if you want to learn something new.
This app is unbelievable, I have just been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration, having very little knowledge of this condition I immediately began a search to help me understand. This app which I downloaded last week has provided more information than I would have ever expected. As a dictionary I originally thought it would give an explanation of the words, this app far exceeds that. Really UNBELIEVABLE.
Great for EMS!!!
As a new EMT, I’m constantly needing to quickly look up words, phrases, acronyms, abbreviations, terms, conditions, etc.. and this app always has my back in my times of need. App is easy to use and reliable. My favorite feature is that you can highlight any word in a page and look that up in the app as well. 5 stars!
Very helpful to someone with rare medical condition
I have a rare autoimmune condition and this app has been really helping me better understand terms and mechanisms involved in my condition. Only complaint is that the interface is not refined for use on newer phones but is still totally useful. In particular, I love that it provides definitions from multiple sources. This helps me a lot in better understanding what each terms means.
I am so happy ! That I found this app it has been helpful so far. I used to google all the words I didn't recognize but now I can easily find them with this app , I have found all words that I need. I am a junior I nursing student and this app has helped me tremendously while studying for exams. Thank you so much !
I am a nurse so I'm always in need of medical reference guides. This one is very comprehensive and thorough! There is no need to select from menus or categories...just type in what you are looking for, and there it is! It provides a lot of information on what I've searched thus far. Def a keeper for me!
I love this app because it not only covers medical issues and illnesses, but also medications. Usually it is one OR the other. The only thing that could make the app better would be if it did not require perfect spelling and could give you a few possibilities to choose from. Not everyone knows how to spell EVERY medication or illness correctly.
As a new nursing student it’s super handy to have a dictionary that gives me the exact medical definition I’m looking for. It is quick and to the point so I don’t have to search for the correct use of the word. I use it at least once a day.
I love the app! I give 5 stars, but i really wish it had a “word of the day” or something of that nature. It would be neat to get a push notification with an often used word, just to strengthen/broaden the medical dictionary. Love the app though, nothing wrong with it at all!
