Announcing that Hipposoft, the developers of Physical Exam Essentials and Heart Murmur Pro, has launched version 2.1 of Lab Values +, Abbreviations, Prefix/Suffix Medical Reference for the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android users.

There is even an innovative Common Panels section, which is a new feature in version 2.1, that organizes lab values into commonly ordered lab panels such as basic metabolic panel, complete blood count, thyroid studies, etc. This allows users to find labs quickly and easily in a way that other apps have yet to adopt successfully.
