[prMac.com] Taos, New Mexico - According to a recent study, more than 75% of medical providers (Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners) are using handheld, mobile devices as resources when treating their ailing patients. With this in mind, Abe Balsamo & Co. has set out to provide peer-reviewed, point-of-care medical information to these providers.
Released on May 12th, 2011, "Arrhythmias" is the first app of the medical suite that has been released by Abe Balsamo & Co. In the first week of sales, the company 's sales have exploded and "Arrhythmias" climbed onto the Apple Top 100 Medical Apps within one day and by the end of the first week, was a Top Ten Paid Medical App. Almost a year later, and after more than 15 updates, "Arrhythmias" is again making headlines. Arrhythmias is about to pass 100,000 downloads in less than a year!
"We are eager to help medical practitioners make quick, informed, peer-reviewed decisions that are in line with the standards of care. We hope to provide affordable ($0.99) peace-of-mind to doctors, PAs, and NPs, as well as EMS professionals, when making decisions at the bedside or even in an ambulance. Our application helps to diagnose and treat very complicated medical problems, such as heart problems, in the case of 'Arrhythmias'," states Abe Balsamo, president of Abe Balsamo & Co.

It is inexpensive and high quality, with an intuitive display and easy to use format.
