From Medgadget:

Well medbloggers, the time is here. Readers, meet MDCalc, The Clinical Calculator. MDCalc, meet the readers. MDCalc is a free website to help you do the medical calculation grunt work.

I got tired of wading through Google searches to find a calculator for all those medical calculations that you often have to use, but don’t use often enough to remember: the A-a O2 Gradient, the Calcium Correction in Hypoalbuminemia, the FENa, the MDRD. And countless others. (Easy ones, too, including the BMI and a patient age calculator.) I’m going for the Guiness Book of World Records, Most Medical Equations on One Website.

I’ve also included a number of scores and risk calculations, including the Framingham Cardiak Risk, the PORT Score/Community-Acquired Pneumonia Severity Scale Ranson’s Criteria for Pancreatitis and the Strep Pharyngitis Probability Score. Not to mention the TIMI Scores.

You can even download the equations to your PDA.

So please try out the site, and tell me what you like, what you don’t, and what I’m missing. Feedback is greatly appreciated! And if you feel like it’s worth a link, please link to it on your blog!
