Medscape is an absolute must have for the workplace. I do not work in a medical setting but deal with people on a daily basis who have issues with alcohol and drug misuse and their attendant illnesses. I need to quickly assess that person and Medscape has been invaluable in helping with this.

The app as purchased needs a wi-fi signal to be able to be used but with a bit of jigging you can download all the articles for offline use. I did this as I have no wi-fi at work. The only slight issue is that you don't have the option of downloading the pictures, you need a connection for that. I would have like to be able to download the pics, especially the photos of the meds.

Anyhow, the resource is very easy to browse through and offers genuinely usable and indepth information on drugs, conditions, procedures, ineractions, calculators and a directory.

These six portals offer access to a massive databse of current and sensible information that is laid out in an easy to follow format.

If you have any interest in the medical world or deal with people with ailments in any work setting I heartily recommend this app.

Comprehensive and useful.

I find this guide invaluable for gleaning additional information about many of my patients' conditions. As a paramedic practitioner I don't have the in depth knowledge of a Doctor, so this enables me to learn whilst assessing my patients.

It hasn't failed me yet!

This is a very useful and comprehensive app. It is user friendly and simple to navigate. Perhaps greater detail on the known side effects of each medication would be a useful addition to enable health professionals to weigh up the pro's and con's of use per individual, but otherwise a great product. Well done WebMD.

A great resource for anyone working in the field of medicine, but then, I don't! Very useful section on checking whether your medication will be adversely affected by other drugs you have been prescribed, and I did learn quite a lot about many conditions, but it is really too technical for the layman. They keep sending me updates and articles which are excellent but really wasted on me so I will probably remove it from my Kindle eventually.
