A Small Flood of Apps

ENTSHO, Resus Algorithms 2 and The DAS APP

This last week was pretty busy. I've released a new app, released a new and overhauled version of an app and released a teeny tiny update to another app.


The app is out now for Android and iOS. It's a collaborative production with 

You can find it for download on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store now. 

This is "Stage 1" of the ENTSHO release - there are three guideline sections but only one is available at the moment. The other two will be released in the next few weeks, as staggered releases. Thereafter the app will updated to reflect the guidelines at

Resus Algorithms 2

The popular Resus Algorithms was getting pretty long in the tooth and, more importantly, was out of date. Resus Algorithms 2 has the Resus Council (UK) guidelines from 2015; the latest versions.

iResus is back from the ether and this time it's by the Resus Council. It's similar but different to Resus Algorithms 2 which retains the essential layout of the original Resus Algorithms (which now, sadly, exists only on my hard drive and the devices which still haven't updated). 

There is a new section on CPR and Defibrillation, and a CPR Recorder.

The CPR Recorder allows users to record the times of the Start of CPR, Shocks delivered and Adrenaline administered, with the facility to email a report of this timeline. It's on ongoing development and should be considered very much a beta version. Note: the recorder itself has NO facility for recording any patient information at all. No NHS number, no name, no age, not even gender. This is intentional.

The DAS App

Last but not least - The DAS App had a minor tweak last week. It was a bug fix that you'll likely not have noticed anyway, and the bug is gone now.

That's it for now. Watch this space for plenty of new soon though.

Healthcare Password Survey
I conducted a small survey last month. It's been quite revealing; the results aren't a surprise, but the scale of some of the biases revealed are. I'd love to redo this properly - countrywide - though I doubt that there would be that much of a difference. 
Total responses were 207. Here is the breakdown - 

Do you use least one username and password to access systems at your work?

The vast majority of healthcare workers obviously need access to computer systems as part of their jobs. Everything is becoming electronic, or is already (or should be!). 
Number of Username-Password combinations?
