resources at their fingertips
SKOKIE, IL, November 22, 2005 - PEPID LLC, developer of #1 rated medical/drug information and decision-support tools - announced today that the latest version of its medical information software will include nearly 100 high-resolution images including anatomical illustrations and enhanced rhythm strips. Now healthcare professionals and students, using their PDAs or PEPID Online, will have high-resolution visual resources at their fingertips.
"“Our team of clinicians reviewed a wide range of potential anatomy subjects, before selecting which ones to illustrate," says Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, PEPID Founder and CEO.

As always, we welcome feedback from our users about what they'd like to see in future releases."”

Students will find these new resources handy in study and classroom, as well as clinical settings."”
