Carter’s Encyclopaedia of Health and Medical has entered the top ten in the book category for paid iPad apps. The app has charted as high at number 4 in the US and number 3 in Australia.
The app covers the definitions and explanations of every medical term and health problem likely to be encountered by an individual, and should be detailed enough to cover all the information a nurse or paramedical is ever likely to need. It is written in a relaxed style that expands on the basic dictionary definitions to make the knowledge it contains encyclopaedic in its coverage. The contents should be understood by anyone with a high school education, and certainly no prior knowledge of medicine or science is necessary.
