"High index of suspicion for child abuse: 1. Long bone fracture. 2. Near transverse fracture of long bone, usually caused by either blunt trauma or pathologic fracture. 3. Less obvious, corner fractures of distal metaphysis”

Ratings and Reviews
Not for the squeamish. A must have for the medical professional! This app is for serious professionals, and should be respected, as the cases in here are real patients. Following the natural order of comments is confusing, however and makes it unpleasant to both comment and or follow comments. The new commenting format continually pushes the most popular comment (even if it is not relevant or correct) to the top of the page and leaves all of the other comments askew. Needs to be fixed!!
This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.
To the greatest!
Figure one is definitely the greatest app you could ever pass by! It is helping me through my medical journey a whole bunch! Much thanking and appreciation to all founders!
