App Store Description

This app includes a simplified ABG interpretation. It provides speedy interpretation, helps in early recognition of subtle changes in a patient that could be life threatening, and also suggest diagnostic tools and treatments.

I have also included drip calculations in the hope of preventing medication errors especially on the aspect of delivering wrong dosage. It also provides indications, recommended dosages and titrations, and nursing responsibilities during the course of the administration of medications.

The EKG calculator included here is designed to develop the skills of nurses, nursing students, monitor technicians, and other health care personnel in the measurement and interpretation of an EKG rhythm.

Rhythms included here are:

AV Nodal Rhythms:
1. Accelerated Junctional Rhythm
2. AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
3. Junctional Rhythm
4. Junctional Tachycardia
5. Premature Junctional Complex

Atrial Rhythms:
6. Atrial Fibrillation
7. Atrial Flutter
8. Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia
9. Premature Atrial Complex
10. Unifocal Atrial Tachycardia
11. Wandering Atrial Pacemaker

Bundle and AV Blocks:
12. Bifascicular Block
13. First-Degree AV Block
14. Left Anterior Fascicular Block
15. Left Bundle Branch Block
16. Left Posterior Fascicular Block
17. Right Bundle Branch Block
18. Second-Degree AV Block Type I
19. Second-Degree AV Block Type II
20. Third-Degree AV Block
21. Trifascicular Block

Paced Rhythms:
22. Atrially Paced
23. Atrioventricularly Paced
24. Ventricularly Paced

Pacemaker Failures:
25. Atrial Non-Capture
26. Atrial Undersensing
27. Ventricular Non-Capture
28. Ventricular Non-Capture

Sinus Rhythms:
29. Normal Sinus Rhythm
30. Sinus Arrest
31. Sinus Arrhythmia
32. Sinus Bradycardia
33. Sinus Exit Block
34. Sinoatrial Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
35. Sinus Tachycardia

Supraventricular Tachycardias:
36. Atrial Fibrillation with RVR
37. Atrial Flutter with RVR
38. AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
39. Junctional Tachycardia
40. Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia
41. Sinoatrial Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
42. Sinus Tachycardia
43. Unifocal Atrial Tachycardia
44. Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

Ventricular Rhythms:
45. Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm
46. Idioventricular Rhythm
47. Multifocal Premature Ventricular Complex
48. Unifocal Premature Ventricular Complex
49. Ventricular Fibrillation
50. Ventricular Tachycardia

Put in the numbers and click interpret and this calculator provides you with a diagnosis of the EKG rhythm. Sample strips with criteria for diagnosing are provided so you can compare your ekg strips and see if they closely resemble to the strips you are reading.

In the near future, I'm going to launch the update which would include ACLS practice, Nursing diagnosis, and quiz games to prepare nurses for national certifications such as NCLEX-RN, PCCN, and CCRN.

Note: For IV Compatibility, please ask your institution pharmacist on drugs that are considered compatible by your clinical facility.
