This particular app, though well-rated (4/5 stars), is for select people really — people who work in the operating room. That doesn’t mean you can’t still go ahead and get it anyway! It is FREE for a limited amount of time. You can get it from HERE. Basically, this is a 19-point checklist with rules to follow in the operating room. Imagine someone whipping out their iPhone or iPod Touch in the operating room to make sure that they don’t kill you, lol. Here’s some information on it:
The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist has recently been reported to reduce post-operative mortality by over 40%. This checklist has now been adapted into an easy to use iPhone App.
No need to remember the 19-point checklist – run through it on your iPhone. This tool is designed to help surgeons, anesthetists, OR nurses and other health care professionals reduce the risk of surgical complications and mortality.
Designed for use in the OR, this software was converted from cutting edge research to an iPhone app within a week of online publication. Now that’s knowledge translation at its best.
