Abdominal Pain Exam Checklist Mobile App

The Abdominal Pain Exam Checklist mobile app was designed to help physicians and medical students complete examinations of the abdomen. Designed for patients who present with acute abdominal pain, the app covers the general approach to examining the abdomen and provides a detailed checklist of steps to follow.

The exam checklist covers inspecting the abdominal wall for tears, listening to bowel sounds, checking for tenderness and tracking other acute pain areas. Once the physical examination has been completed, physician's can sign off on the results electronically for their records.
