The initiative to develop this software application resulted from our wish to offer general practitioners, doctors or specialists a reliable and user-friendly tool for calculating morphine rescue doses. We decided to call the product Orthodose. The name refers to ORTHO, which comes from the ancient Greek ὀρθός, orthόs (“right”, “straight”), used here as a prefix to express the idea of uprightness and accuracy.
