ED Doc Launches iPhone App

'Think Twice' based on book of same name

David "Brady" Pregerson, M.D., wants people to download his new iPhone app – just not when they're driving or crossing the street.

The "Think Twice" app, which is based on his pocket book of the same name, launched April 7 and can be found in the medical section of the iTunes store.

"I wanted to teach people how to avoid preventable emergencies," said Dr. Pregerson when asked why he created the book. "It's more for lay people than physicians, but there are things about the emergency room that might interest other doctors."

The app addresses washing wine glasses, cutting frozen bread, crossing a boulevard without making sure the center lanes stop, and "anything that follows, 'Hey, watch this,'" he said.

In addition to "Think Twice," Dr. Pregerson has written several other medical pocket books.
