Publisher's description - BMI Tool 1.3
The BMI Tool is an in-depth weight management tool developed to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of obesity. The tool features a BMI calculator that quickly gives accurate results in a few seconds. It also displays indications for pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery, weight loss guidelines, a Basal Energy Expenditure Calculator using the Harris-Benedict Equation, and other useful information.
Please note that an Epocrates account is required to use this free app. Registration is free and takes just a minute to complete.
Epocrates makes basic free software for medical professionals and students. It`s free. No but it`s free. They have you register in case you would like updates info on lab results, medication efficacy, etc. This data cost money to compile, and they hope healthcare pros. will find the info useful and use their arrive later. If you dont understand the application then delete it and dl a more entertaining app. Don`t give them a low rating because you are an idiot and do not know what the app is for. I am a firstyear med student and I thank epocrates for creating useful aid programs.
Good Idea of making this app. My bro is a physician and when I showed him said it is very useful.
This is for MEDICAL professionals
Epocrates products are designed for medical professionals/students. This is another nice, easy/quick to use tool and works great if you know what you`re using it for. I would like to see more help (or an App!!) for eating disorders such as anorexia/bulimia. This App does NOT calculate for children. For children use the growth charts from the CDC: cdc.gov/growthcharts The BMI for children is based on a percentile range in comparison to other children for the same age group. Children whose BMI fall less than the 5th percentile are underweight Children whose BMI falls in the 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile are healthy weight Children whose BMI that range between the 85th percentile and less than the 95th percentile are at risk of overweight Children whose BMI is equal to or greater than the 95th percentile are overweight.
