The ePSS app was developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human services.

Name: Upper Respiratory Virtual Lab
Developer: Georgia Health Sciences University
The virtual lab is an iPad-compatible application which shows the upper airways through a 3D map. 34 atonomical structures are included, and pinch-to-zoom tech allows for zooming in on particular areas or rotating a camera.
Useful for medical students who want a more interactive approach than textbooks, the app would also be suitable as a teaching tool for patients.
Name: Airstrip Cardiology
Developer: Airstrip Technologies
Airstrip Cardiology has previously been named one of Apple's favorite medical applications. Clinicians with an iPhone can use the app to view a patient's full ECG history. Cardiac waveform data can be viewed and analyzed -- aiming for a quicker diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients.
As the app is aimed at health professionals, although the app is free, healthcare providers have to purchase and install Airstrip software to connect patient data with mobile devices.
