So now you have your new iPad. Angry birds and surfing the web is great on this new device but let’s face it, it would be nice to justify just a little your purchase for the greater good.

Well, at least for your clinical practice, you can now bring your nice new aluminum wonder to work and not feel like you are showing off.

As as Certified Respiratory Educator I have a great deal of papers and articles that I carry around with me. Some for reference, and some to teach my patients with. The iPad is such a great device to use for teaching and for a quick refresher. Yes you can fill it full of pdf’s and store them in iBooks, but to have an app to use that would exploit the iPad to its full potential would be ideal.

I have searched the iTunes store for apps to use for such a purpose and have found 3 worthy candidates. All three have their short comings, and each one does something the other does not so there isn’t a real winner, but, each one does succeed in fulfilling a certain niche.

The three candidates are:

  • Netter Atlas

Netter’s Anatomy Atlas for iPad costs US$89.99

  • Human Atlas HD

Human Atlas for iPad costs US$29.99 + US$9.99 for extra atlases or $60 complete

  • Visible Body

Visible Body for iPad costs US$29.99
