The Bugs & Drugs Antimicrobial/Infectious Diseases Reference is now available as an iPhone app! Bugs & Drugs is a comprehensive, evidence-based reference for physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners and other health care practitioners. .

Bugs & Drugs provides practitioners with the latest recommendations for the appropriate use of antimicrobials and the optimal treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. It is also a key component of antimicrobial stewardship efforts. This reference can optimize patient outcomes and minimize the unintended consequences of antimicrobial use, including: toxicity, superinfections, resistance and unnecessary treatment costs.

Bugs & Drugs is divided into six sections:

1. Antibiotics
2. Treatment recommendations for infections in children and adults (including selected ophthalmic, fungal, and parasitic infections),
3. Recommendations for the prevention of infections,
4. Treatment and prophylaxis of dental infections,
5. Use of antibiotics in pregnancy/lactation, and
6. Microbiology
 
The Bugs & Drugs app is well suited for healthcare practitioners looking for an evidence based mobile reference and provides therapeutic options in a clear, concise manner.
  
Once installed, you do not need internet access to utilize the content. Internet access is only required for initial installation of the app and to receive updates.
 
The content was prepared by Dr. Edith Blondel-Hill (Medical Microbiologist/Infectious Diseases Specialist, Kelowna General Hospital) and Ms. Susan Fryters (Antimicrobial Utilization/Infectious Diseases Pharmacist, Alberta Health Services) with the help of over 40 reviewers with expertise in infectious diseases, microbiology, pharmacy, and Public Health. Design and implementation of the app was provided by Saint Street and Resonant Apps.

Ratings and Reviews

I like bugs and drugs

PhC in long term care

I have never written an app review but am motivated to do so now.
My employer previously subscribed to the full online bugs and drugs but I found the full content overwhelming when I needed under pressure.
I recently found this app and am seriously impressed with the ease of use. I find it easy and handy.

Great App

Great App for quick Abx reference and interaction. A bit pricy ..

Fantastic app.

Ian Stiell Fan

Surprisingly comprehensive, even including drug costs. A lot of work went in to making this. Highly recommended.
