Pregnancy Calculators Pro

Hi, everyone! It's not so long ago since the third post and now we're proudly present our recent app called the "Pregnancy Calculators Pro". Different from the previous app, this one app is also targeting the larger market outside the medical health professionals. But still, we provide it free for you guys, as free as the air we're breathing into. Just simply click on this link or the badge below to have it in your hands!

Get it on Google Play

As you can imagine by only reading the title of the app, this one app will give you a lot of information regarding every aspect of pregnancy. It is designed to help not only the medical professional but also general population without a medical background to understand more about their pregnancy. 

Why should you choose "Pregnancy Calculators Pro"?
  • Simple and very easy to use.
  • Precise calculation with most used formula.
  • Find out your gestational age and estimated due date with just one click.
  • Estimate your gestational age based on several ultrasonography biometry.
  • Find out your baby's weight.
  • Some useful pregnancy recommendations and tips are provided.
  • It is totally free.
  • A lot of features and more! Download now!

There are 4 main features that we're provided:
  1. Calculate the gestational age of your pregnancy based on the first day of the last menstrual period.
  2. Calculate the gestational age of your pregnancy based on biometry of the fetus measured in ultrasonography.
  3. Calculate the estimated birth weight of your baby based on biometry of the fetus measured in ultrasonography.
  4. Several tips and recommendations cited from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists regarding some important aspects of pregnancy.
Estimating the gestational age of the pregnancy is one of the most important parts during the first antenatal visit. One of the most common and easiest ways to estimate the gestational age is using the first day of last menstrual period. This estimation assumes that conception occurs on day 14 of the cycle, therefore, this method is suitable for women having regular menstruation cycle of 28 days. While estimated due date is calculated by adding 280 days (40 weeks) to the first day of last menstrual period. But calculating gestational age using the last menstrual period is hard to do if the menstrual cycle wasn't regular and the mother was unsure of the exact date of the last menstrual period. That's when the second feature of this app takes part.

The second feature of this app allows the physician to estimate the gestational age and delivery due date based on the biometry of fetus measured in ultrasonography. There are 3 biometry that can be used in estimating the gestational age, such as crown-rump length (CRL), biparietal diameter (BPD) and head circumference (HC). Crown-rump length is used mainly in 1st-trimester measurements while biparietal diameter and head circumference are commonly used in 2nd and 3rd-trimester measurements.

As we know, not all the ultrasonography device used nowadays allows the physician to measure the fetal weight automatically. By using 2 most common formulas, Hadlock and Shepard formula, the physician can estimate the fetal weight using fetal biometry measured in ultrasonography. Hadlock formula works by using fetal length (FL) and abdominal circumference (AC) in the calculation while Shepard formula estimate the fetal weight based on biparietal diameter (BPD) and abdominal circumference (AC). By simply putting the necessary information needed from fetal biometry, the app will do the math for you!

The last but not least, we also put several tips and recommendation regarding some important aspects in pregnancy, including the recommended frequency of antenatal visits, immunization schedule, recommended weight gain during pregnancy, mineral and folate supplementation, recommended diet, and exercise in pregnancy. All the recommendation written was cited from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) website.

Hypernatremia Correction Rate

Hello, all! This is the third post (and more to go) already. I hope since you guys are into this page, you find our previous apps helpful and willing to read more about our apps.

Since the previous app was about correcting the hyponatremia condition, this one is about reversing the hypernatremia state back into normal. It is an android-based mobile application called "Hypernatremia Correction Rate". You can download it free on Google Play Store by simply clicking this link or the badge below.

Get it on Google Play

Hypernatremia Correction Rate is an app intended to help medical professionals in calculating the rate of infusion needed to correct the elevated sodium level in blood. Hypernatremia is a condition that occurs when serum sodium level is high (>145 mmol/L). The main concept is to correct the hypertonicity caused by elevated sodium levels with the replacement of free water. There are 2 different conditions that affecting the rate of infusion in correcting hypernatremia, the acute and chronic state of hypernatremia. Acute symptomatic hypernatremia should be corrected rapidly while chronic hypernatremia should be corrected more slowly. That's the point where Hypernatremia Correction Rate will help the doctor in adjusting the correction rate used by the infusate to avoid over or under correction.

Why should you choose Hypernatremia Correction Rate?
  • Simple and very easy to use.
  • Precise calculation using Adrogue formula.
  • Selection of most used fluids in treating hypernatremia.
  • You can adjust the correction rate based on clinical judgment.
  • The result will be shown in the amount of selected fluids per hour.
  • The result is also showing intravenous fluid drips (IVFD) rate with drop factors of 20 gtt/ml and 15 gtt/ml.
  • Applicable for the doctor in a remote hospital without syringe pump.

The calculation done by this application is based on Adrogue formula. This formula is preferred over the conventional equation for water deficit because this equation proven useful in situations in which sodium and potassium must be used in the infusate. To obtain the correct infusate rate based on selected fluid, user can simply input the patient's information such as weight, the blood level of sodium, age category in years, sex and preferable kind of fluid to be used as infusate. Then simply by clicking 'submit', the result will appear in split second.

The result page will show the volume of fluid needed and the number of IVFD rate in gtt/minute (by the drop factor) based on the selected fluid chosen. The result can be adjusted by selecting the amount of estimated insensible water loss so that it can be included/excluded in the calculation of the volume of fluid needed. The default rate of sodium decrement needed per hour shown is 0.5 mmol/L/hour, but it can be adjusted based on physician's preference.
Hypernatremia Correction Rate Preview
The other important feature in this app is the safety range of correction rate shown based on the current acute/chronic state of hypernatremia. It is vital to distinguish this two condition because it can lead to brain edema if a chronic state of hypernatremia was corrected rapidly simply because the calculation did not include that as a vital part to be considered. In acute hypernatremia, the initial sodium correction rate should be 2-3 mEq/L/h for 2-3 hours, with the maximum increment of 12 mEq/L/day. However, chronic hypernatremia with no or mild symptoms should be corrected at a rate not to exceed 0.5 mEq/L/h and a total increment of 8 - 10 mEq/L/day.

The result also shows the number of intravenous fluid drip rate in gtt/minute. This feature will help doctor from a remote hospital that doesn't have syringe pump. Therefore, the doctor should know the drop factor of their infusion set. On this application, we only show the drip rate for common drop factor used, such as 15 gtt/ml and 20 gtt/ml. Drop factor of 15 gtt/ml means that it takes 15 drops from the infusion to be as equal as 1 ml.

The application is still far from perfect. Therefore, we expecting any comment, suggestion or even testimonial to make this app a better one. Please kindly contact us at contact@imedical-apps.com. We are looking forward in making another useful medical application in the near future, so stay tuned on this website and don't forget to give a good review and rate our apps!

Hyponatremia Correction Rate

Hello, again folks!
Okay, now we would like to present our recent project "Hyponatremia Correction Rate". It is an android based mobile application used to determine the sodium (Na2+) correction rate in the patient with hyponatremia. It is a free application and available through Google Play Store. Unfortunately, we still don't have an iOS version yet. If you would like to download our app into your mobile phone, you can visit Google Play Store page on this link here or just simply click the badge below.

Get it on Google Play

Hyponatremia Correction Rate is an app intended to help medical professionals in treating symptomatic patients with hypoosmolar hyponatremia. Main management of hypoosmolar hyponatremia is treating the underlying cause and giving sodium infusion. With this app you can calculate the amount of infusion (ml/hour) should be used for increasing the patient sodium serum level. Hyponatremia severity depends on how fast and severe the decline in serum sodium level. Therefore, sodium correction is mandatory in the management of patients with severe hyponatremia. This app will help the physician adjust the correction rate to avoid over or under correction.

Why should you choose Hyponatremia Correction Rate?
  • Simple user interface and very easy to use.
  • Precise calculation using Adrogue formula.
  • Selection of most used fluids in treating hyponatremia.
  • The result will be shown in the amount of selected fluids per hour.
  • The result is also showing intravenous fluid drips (IVFD) rate with drop factors of 20 gtt/ml and 15 gtt/ml. 
  • Applicable for the physicians in a remote hospital without syringe pump.
The calculation in this application is based on Adrogue formula. User can simply calculate the sodium infusion rate based on patient weight (kg), current sodium serum level (mmol/L), age in years (child, adult, or elderly), sex (male or female), and fluids type used for correction (3% saline, ringer's lactate, normal saline, or 1/2 normal saline).

Based on several factors above, the doctor then can determine the correction rate. The result of the calculation is shown on the amount of selected fluid per hour (ml/hour). You can choose the rate from sodium increment of 0.5 mmol, 1.0 mmol, or 2.0 mmol per liter per hour. Sodium correction rate should not exceed 8 mmol/L/day to avoid central pontine myelinolysis (CPM). Patient with severe symptoms can be treated with 1-2 mmol/L/hour and only using hypertonic (3%) saline.

The result is also shown on the number of intravenous fluid drip rate in gtt/minute. This feature will help doctor from a remote hospital that doesn't have syringe pump. The doctor should know the drop factor of their infusion set. On this application, we only give the drip rate for common drop factor used, like 15 gtt/ml and 20 gtt/ml. Drop factor of 15 gtt/ml means that it takes 15 drops from the infusion to equal as 1 ml.

This application is far beyond perfect. If you have any comment or suggestion, please say hi to us at contact@imedical-apps.com. We are looking forward making another useful medical application in the near future, so stay tuned on this website.

eGFR Calculators Pro

Hello, folks!
Welcome to our brand new websites www.imedical-apps.com.

Now we would like to review our first mobile app "eGFR Calculators Pro". This app is still only available in android platform yet. If possible, we would like to make one for iOS platform in the near future. If you would like to download our first app, you can visit Google Play Store and search for "eGFR Calculators Pro" or just simply click on this link here.

Get it on Google Play

Now it's time to give a little description for our new app here. eGFR Calculators Pro is an app designed to estimate renal function based on the value of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). GFR tells you the amount of blood filtered by the kidney in a minute. A low GFR may mean that you have a kidney disease. Normal healthy people usually have GFR value >90 ml/minute/1,73m2. GFR is also used widely by medical professionals in diagnosis and staging of kidney disease, especially Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

In this app, you can calculate the value of estimated GFR (eGFR) using three most common formulas, such as Cockroft-Gault Formula, Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Formula, and Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) Formula. The variables used in these formulas are age, weight, creatinine serum, sex, and races. The result from each formula for the same person might be different.
"Cockroft Gault is the most used formula to calculate eGFR. In this formula, woman will have 15% lower value of eGFR compared to man. MDRD formula has been validated in CKD patients, but the formula underestimates result of eGFR in healthy patients with value >60 ml/minute/1,73m2. While CKD-EPI Formula is more accurate in estimating eGFR of healthy patients."
This app is intended to help the physician or medical professionals to do the math in the eGFR calculation. But non-medical background could also use this app to calculate their own renal function.

Why should you choose this application?
  • Simple and very easy to use.
  • Using 3 most used formulas, such as Cockroft-Gault, MDRD, and CKD-EPI.
  • The calculation is accurate and precise (the result is rounded to two decimals).
  • A conclusion feature (staging of CKD) based on eGFR value.
This app is far beyond perfect. We need your review and constructive comment to develop a better mobile medical application. If you have any question or constructive comment, feel free to email us at contact@imedical-apps.com.
