The National Library of Medicine has just launched Mobile Medline Plus service that brings much of what is available on the mother site to mobile devices. The service offers consumers trusted medical information at absolutely no charge.
From the press release:
The National Library of Medicine’s Mobile Medline Plus builds on the NLM’s MedlinePlus Internet service, which provides authoritative consumer health information to over 10 million visitors per month. These visitors access MedlinePlus (http://medlineplus.gov) from throughout the United States as well many other countries, and use desktop computers, laptops and even mobile devices to get there.
Mobile MedlinePlus is available in English and Spanish (http://m.medlineplus.gov/spanish) and includes a subset of content from the full Web site. It includes summaries for over 800 diseases, wellness topics, the latest health news, an illustrated medical encyclopedia, and information on prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Mobile MedlinePlus can also help you when you’re trying to choose an over-the-counter cold medicine at the drug store.
And if you’re traveling abroad, you can use Mobile MedlinePlus to learn about safe drinking water.
