EMRA’s EM Rashes app offers a fast, easy, and accurate way to diagnose important rashes that present most commonly to emergency departments. Based on a popular rash algorithm developed by dermatological emergency expert Dr. Heather Murphy-Lavoie and featured in Emergency Medicine magazine on the EM:Rap blog, this practical app eliminates diagnostic guesswork. By selecting a rash type, then answering a series of simple yes or no questions (“Is the patient febrile?”), the algorithm leads you into a narrowed differential diagnosis and overview of each disease process, including notable findings and mainstays of treatment. Developed for emergency medicine physicians by emergency medicine physicians, this simple, free application was created by Dr. Murphy-Lavoie and Dr. David Kammer to help with your daily practice.
Helpful app making decision off basic information. It would be nice to have links built into the descriptions providing additional information as needed.
Nice reference app. However, would be nice to see Measles added to this resource since the disease is re-emerging into the general population. Also would like links to additional references/resources.
Limited in scope; unnecessarily alarming
There are too few disease entities and a large proportion of the diagnoses you are led to are life-threatening (meningococcemia, toxic shock etc), with underrepresentation of more common rashes: HFM, EN, viral, allergic.
