  • Medical Diagnostics Software??? Anyone?

    Does anyone know of a good Medical Diagnostics program that can be run on a Windows computer? Seems like everything I find is designed for a smart phone or, if its for windows, not available to the public.
    I can't even find anything on the torrents websites.

    I don't, but I am interested to see if any exist. Posting to subscribe.

      There is one book you might get it is called the physicians assistant. It goes thru aliments, and possible cures (Drugs) to be used.

        I have it. In fact, I have about 200 books on medical stuff in my electronic library, which is on a laptop, backed up on DVD, and on a thumb drive, all inside a 3 layer Faraday cage.

        I guess I'm looking for a doctor-in-a-box type of solution. Something that can take symptoms, age, sex, and maybe history, and then generate a list of most likely causes. I would then look up each suggestion in the other books and try to narrow it down and provide treatment.

        I can't believe no one has come up with something like this yet for SHTF. Someone starts vomiting, coughing, and complains of a headache or something... How the hell do I know where to start reading??? Seriously? That would be like asking a random person to point to the star KIC8462852. (yes, that's a real star and I bet not a single person here knows anything about it).. just as I would have no idea what the hell the listed symptoms mean.
        I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a common cold and the black plague.

        There needs to be some kind of software that can point us in the right direction to start reading. Something that can take a week long task and reduce it to an hour or two.

        I made a list of every doctor and veterinarian within 20 miles of my home. I have a file with their office address, specialty, home address, and photos if they have social media.
        But as they say, two is one, one is none. I need a backup plan and finding some software was it.

        This sucks.

          You want software that will tell you what to do when 8 years of medical training can't even tell real Dr without diagnostic tests.

          Some people's expectations just aren't realistic.

            I have seen a couple of decent websites that will help you "troubleshoot" illnesses. I will see if I can find them again and post links here. (It might be a little while, since I am a bit crunched for time.)

            They could be useful for the average layperson. As an example, the flowchart would help you pinpoint likely causes of "pain on the left/right/upper/lower side of the abdomen (with/without fever, with/without vomiting, etc. etc.), and could likely indicate (xyz) illness....and click here for more information, etc.

            One site has dozens and dozens of interactive flowcharts for various common illnesses. This will never take the place of a live professional, but will give you some basic idea of what to look up next in your research.

            I played around with them and (for the most part) they seem spot on in many instances.

            Genius is making a way out of no way.

              I need something for SHTF that operates OFFLINE. This isn't for now or current use, its for something to reference when the grid goes down and there is no internet.

              I don't want to confuse a simple ailment with something serious, and I certainly don't want to write off something serious as a simple ailment.

              This is a combination of "When do I need to spend the resources to find a doctor?" vs. "No doctor is available, but we do have this piece of software that can guide us to some degree"

                I agree Murphy. A diagnostic trouble tree or flow chart to point me in the right directions that I can download and save for future use. That or a book that serves the same function. I do differential diagnostics all the time, I just need the knowledge base that such a book or program would provide. IMO, YMMV
