Featured on ACEP NEWS May 2010
Major depression affects five percent of the U.S population. It is believed that 10-15% of women will suffer postpartum depression (PPD) after the birth of a baby.
PPD can lead to marital tension, suicide, and infanticide. This application contains the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale which is a simple questionnaire that you can take. The advantage of having this test available on your IPhone is that you will be able to test yourself and store the results for your doctor. The results can be emailed. The program will save the last 30 entries.
The Zung depression questionnaire contains 20 questions. This is a widely used screening tool. The user can take the test over and over. It will store your results so that you can share with your physician. The application will only keep track of one patient at a time. The tool should be used in conjunction with your health care provider. Sometimes patients do not realize that they are getting more depressed or having signs of depression. The goal of the application is to raise awareness of this disease and to help patients seek medical care.
Zung scale cannot take the place of a comprehensive clinical interview for confirming a diagnosis of depression. The Zung scale also provides a simple tool for monitoring changes in depression severity over time in research studies.
Geriatric Depression Scale this is a depression scale that has 15 questions and allows the user to keep track of the score and also allows the user to email the results to their healthcare provider.
Our goal is to increase awareness of depression and to have patients seek medical care early.
Speak to your health care provider and ask how you can use this tool as part of your tracking your symptoms.
Also, you can take a picture of your graph if you prefer and then email it to your health care provider. In order to take pictures of screens please read instructions on our website.
* DISCLAIMER: This is not a substitute for seeking medical care, and has its limitations. This is a tool to be used with the care of a health care provider to follow management of current disease or to help screen. This is not a perfect test, we advise you consult with your physician if you feel you need help or go to the nearest emergency room. The scales cannot take the place of a comprehensive clinical interview for confirming a diagnosis of depression.
Please seek professional help if you are worried about depression or would like a full medical evaluation.
PLEASE NOTE: Internet connectivity required for email submission. It is important that you have internet access to send emails.

We have made the questions easier to read. We added one more children scale.
I saw this app featured on the news!
The Application is for those of us that want to screen for depression. The application is very helpful, I tried it on my grandparents and my wife after she had her baby. I also tried it on me. I think this would be very useful for those individuals that might be depressed or would like to screen themselves for depression. The application is not a diagnostic tool but a screening tool. The application would be very useful for your primary care doc, OB/gyn doc or other health care providers that are following depression. The neat part of the program is the ability to email the graph and score to your doctor. The application does have resources that direct the user to different websites directly from the Ipod/Iphone. Overall for .99 not bad. I spoke with my PCP and they told me it was ok to use. Ask your doctor to watch the video on the companies website. I see they added more scales a mood bar energy bar.
They keep making it better! Good idea!
Great app to have
I purchased IV MEDS and loved it. This app is a good idea, I think when patients take the test and discuss the results with their doctor it will give them better results. The key to depression is to increase awareness of the disease. This app does that. What I like the most is being able to test my love ones and email their doctor. The plot is neat but I noticed the first result was right on the x axis then after that I noticed it graphs along the x and y axis. I think mothers at risk for Postpartum depression should consider this app. Cool App. I cant wait to see what other apps they will make. I think the mood bar is a great addition.
Date and time please
I think this is a helpful app. I would like to see actual date and time on the mood chart - it says date/time at the bottom, but does not actually show date and time. I would also like to see the ability to add a date and time to notepad notes. And the face on my mood is a bit too cartoonish for me.
