"I had a patient come in adrenal crisis in a pediatric ER where the nurses tend to believe the written word more than the residents. The nurse I was working with had never seen adrenal crisis and wasn't familiar with the treatment. She refused to give hydrocortisone to my patient with a blood pressure of 90/45 until I could prove to them that it was the right thing to do. Needless to say I whipped out PEPID. I'm so "happy " they were willing to trust an unknown source on my palm pilot over me....but at least they gave the kid the meds!"

"Your program is great! It installed smoothly without any problems. I had so many problems with ePocrates that I returned it immediately. It works well on my Tungsten C. The CRC Suite is perfect for students in clinical rotations."
"Your product is AWESOME!!!!! I was thoroughly impressed with the breadth & depth of information contained in the Pepid suite. It is easy and intuitive to use with simple menus & hierarchial outlined subjects. I have been searching exhaustively all of the medical software available today on the market in preparation for my clinical rotations. It seems to me that there are 4 main items that medical students doing rotations will need: 1) a drug database such as a PDR including one which incorportates herbals & alternative drugs, 2) a drug interaction guide, 3) some type of differential diagnosis guide which provides synopses on common medical conditions, and 4) medical calculators. Pepid's CRC incorporates all 4 in a single integrated suite in which it is easy to transition between subjects! If I were to purchase all 4 of these types of products separately I would have to spend over $400 and they wouldn't integrate with each other very well. Plus, your product has MANY help hints, memory joggers, and tips to make for successful rotations! Kudos guys/gals on a job well done & on product which is sure to help many thousands of medical students and improve patient care! P.S. The installation procedure was so seemless and quick that I didn't think it had installed correctly so I installed it again! To my surprise, it had installed correctly the first time & I haven't had any problems with it!"
"I am a second year medical student and have found the trial of PEPID very exciting."
"PEPID is great! I just started my clerkship and it's been invaluable. Overall the program is fantastic and I'm recommending it to all of my peers!"
"One of my classmates found PEPID and was really excited about it. He told everyone that has a PDA in our class that this was THE program. I know of two more classmates that currently have a trial subscription. I spent several weeks researching medical programs for my PDA and PEPID is in my opinion the most comprehensive and useful of the PDA programs available. I also read multiple reviews of PEPID that gave it high marks for ease of use and comprehensive content. I will definitely recommend the PEPID for the incoming class of 2006."
"I really like the new version of PEPID, especially the new pediatric information. It has come in really handy this semester of school with my peds rotation."
"I'm really enjoying my PEPID and so is the rest of my class."
"I do enjoy my PEPID program. I have found it very useful in school and work."
"I'm a new intern in the emergency med program at St. Lukes Roosevelt in NYC. I love PEPID so far and I'm talking it up to my fellow residents."
"As a medical student I have already found PEPID to be useful in the few days I've had it. It's an easy way to find just about all the info I need for topics that come up during third year. This has helped me with SOAP notes for pre-rounds, case write ups/presentations and it's great to have something useful and portable - I can read worthwhile info whenever I'm stuck waiting or have a few minutes of downtime. I like that there is a specific version for med students and that you have thought about more than just facts (orientation to the hospital, balance, etc). I also value that you give key article references and other resources - this allows me to quickly round out my information and provide useful resources to others about the patient problems that arise. I am very pleased with your product."

"I am impressed by the program. It seems to provide the information a third and fourth year student would find helpful as they begin their clinicals. I have only begun to expore its functions."
"I think PEPID is an awesome product. I use it when preparing for my clinical rotations. Just last week I had to cite it for my med look-up because 2 of the drugs I was searching for were not listed in my drug reference book - but were in your latest update! I guess, from a studentís point of view, this has everything I need right in front of me to find info on my assigned patients. I am thrilled I found your site!"

"I have been using PEPID, and have found it to be quite useful for me. It is novel in that it provides both drug and disease information, which is helpful. The multiple comprehensive references were a great benefit, for example the comprehensive approach to ECG interpretation was quite helpful during a previous cardiology rotation."
"I love the PEPID program and I have learned to depend on it!"
"I am quite pleased with PEPID. I use it on a daily basis during rounds and clinic work. I believe I save at least 1/2-1 hour daily using the resource. The best features are the user friendly format and it's thorough topic information. I was on rounds one morning and we had a patient with pancreatitis. I was able to quickly brief myself before being called upon by the resident. PEPID saved the day! Thank you for your follow-up. Your product is a winner!"
"I have now tried 5mcc, PEPID, Merck Manual, MedScut Washington Manual and 'current medical dx'. I end up relying on PEPID all of the time. Each program does have its strengths, but PEPID is more reliable in its practicality and its quick search/contents."
