Medtimer has been created in a collaboration between medical consultants and chart topping app developers. It is designed to provide the ultimate in efficiency and simplicity and to work to perfection within even the busiest of clinical environments. To use it, you just need to tap the screen, everything else is done for you.

Medtimer will:

• Work for heart rate (HR) and respiratory/breathing rate (RR)
• Count the number of beats or breaths for you.
• Calculate the rate per minute from the count. (BPM)
• Display comparison charts for all age ranges.
• Works across all of your Apple devices including phones, tablets and watches.

*NEW* A brand new complication for Apple Watch allows a single click on the watch face to open the app and start the timer instantly.

Medtimer saves you from having to hold any information in your head, allowing you to concentrate fully on providing your patients with the maximum possible attention. The timing can be carried out discretely and does not involve anyone else needing to touch your mobile device. 

Medtimer will not ask you to sign up to our social media page. In fact, the app contains no advertising or any other popups which may distract you from your task. If you do find the app useful, it would be really nice if you could leave us a good review.

If you have any feedback please feel free to contact us directly.

Unusable in currant form

Two issues.

1. Seems to be making noise even when my phone is in silent, it’s completely unnecessary for it to beep so much! I would like the option for it to be completely silent so I it doesn’t distract,

2. It would be nice to manually enter a count at the end of the time, rather than having to tap for every heart beat.

Useful but...

This app is very useful for counting heart and resp rate. The one thing that I wish it had is a complication on the Apple Watch app. This way I can access it really quickly without having to fiddle with the watch.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. We like the idea of the complication and will look into it for our next release.

Distracting soundd

whilst trying to record there is an annoying tick each second. Why is there no mute option?
It would be better if you could select heart rate or resps before starting then swap to the other with both results remaining on screen to enter on patient records at end of examination
