Eponyms (for students)

By Ossus GmbH

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Eponyms brings a short description of more than 1'700 common and obscure medical eponyms (e.g., Rovsing's sign, Virchow's node) to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. A perfect tool to quickly look up the meaning of any eponym.

It uses the beautiful eponym database from Andrew J. Yee (http://www.eponyms.net/) who still maintains the database, updates can be installed right from within Eponyms.


*** Features:
• More than 1'700 eponyms, updates can be downloaded right from within the App
• Full text search
• 28 categories as well as the full list
• Customizable "starred" list to keep track of the eponyms you tend to forget or which you know to be favorites of your professor ;)
• List of recently accessed eponyms
• Learn mode


*** Learn Mode:
The edit mode works like this:

• iPhone: Shake your device sideways in order to display only the name of a random eponym
• iPhone: Shake it up and down to only display the description of an eponym
• iPad: Tap either the "Random Eponym" or "Random Title" button

Learn mode randomly displays eponyms from the category you're currently visiting (or you've last visited). So you can either learn eponyms from a given category, only the ones that you've starred or just all of them. To see the solution, tap the three dots that appear in place of the solution.


*** Non-students:
This is the free student version. Please only download the free version while you (still) are a student.

What's New in Version 1.4.2

😤 Shake-to-learn works again! Shake sideways to show a random eponym name, shake up-down to show a random eponym description.

Nice

Please add
Vessels of Thebesius (Thebesian veins aka vasa Thebesii) and vessels of Wearn. The Thebesian veins are just that, veins, they connect the coronary veins to the heart chambers. The vessels of Wearn ~arteries. The vasa Wearn connect the coronary arteries to the heart chambers. For additional information, please see PubMed Commons.

Very helpful

Really nice app...very helpful...but please add an option where we can submit eponyms that aren't included in the app...or at least if we could have an option to add them for our personal use ... Considering that certain eponyms are significant only from a particular regional point of view...

Great app!

Wonderful & useful. Thanks for being free!
