Hello, I'm jr. house doctor in a small hospital. I've been using O2 xdaIIi with Skyscape's Harrisons, 5MCC, mobile DDX, drug guide and archimedes for past three weeks.
It has helped me many times in urgent cases as well as I can browse trough the contents whenever I've spare time. Here are two 'simple' cases where I saved my time as well as patients' money also; remember 'medical insurance' is still uncommon in India.

  1. A 55 years female presented with diplopia. She had bilateral VI nerve palsy and Babinsky sign. Her CT brain was WNL. Her Na was 110. Her other work up was WNL. I wasn't sure whether hyponatremia causes cranial nerve palsy, but 5MCC helped me on it and also saved the patient from further neurological work up. 5MCC also offers formula to correct Na deficit.
  2. A 27 years female presented with bullous and vesicular rash, it was her 4 th episode and she was diagnosed Steven -Johnson syndrome. After taking a detailed history it was clear that SJS was triggered according her periods. 5MCC helped me here as I wasn't sure about it. Tamoxifen suggested to avoid the repeated ' attacks ' really helped the patient. Though I'm not familiar with handheld devices the contents are easy to use.
