We recently reviewed a Pediatric fluid calculator app, Rx Pediatric Dehydration. Our physician editor, Dr. Doug Maurer, came away impressed. The same team has now launched another medical app, called Alveolar Gas Tutor app — that helps with ventilator management and critical care medicine.
This medical app focuses on simulating the relationship between respiratory variables and their impact on alveolar ventilation and blood gasses. The respiratory variables include respiratory rate, tidal volume, dead space and fraction inspired oxygen (FiO2). The app allows users to see how partial pressure of oxygen and carbon dioxide are affected depending on changes in respiratory variables.
