Amsterdam-based Elsevier, a publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, launched today their Procedures Consult Mobile to enable physicians, residents, and students to visualize and review more than 300 top medical procedures on their mobile devices. As the use of smartphones increases in the clinical setting, access to mobile resources proves to be an essential tool for verifying physicians' knowledge and skills before conducting a procedure.

Procedures Consult Mobile provides web-enabled smartphones with access to expert videos, "quick review" text and illustrations, checklists, and universal protocol content for every procedure—all presented within a user interface optimized for smartphone web browsers. The mobile site allows clinicians who may not have studied or conducted a procedure for a period of time the ability to prepare for, perform, and follow-up on the most common procedures required in today's hospital setting.

Clinicians can view modules in the following seven areas: anesthesia, emergency medicine, family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, orthopaedics, and a collection specifically geared to the needs of medical students.
