Irving, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – An iPhone application has been created for emergency room doctors and nurses. As reported by The 33 News, Dr. Harvey Castro, a Las Colinas Medical Center in Irving emergency room physician has developed an iPhone application called IV-Meds, which helps ensure patients are given correct medicine dosages.
Dr. Castro is quoted in the report as stating of the app, “I thought wouldn’t it be nice to put all that information that in that book into an iPhone where you could just open the app and hit two clicks and boom, there is your dose.”
Emergency Room nurse Sherry Stallings is further quoted by The 33 News as stating of its benefits, “I’m sure it’s already saved some lives, I mean we always double check, triple check all our meds anyways… It’s just another great tool that helps verify your dosage and makes it a little bit speedier.”
