A New Way to Read UpToDate

For the last 8 years, I've been a fan of UpToDate, an extensive online resource for medical education. A mixed blessing of this service is that too many articles are interesting, which makes reading them on the screen or printing them out impractical.

One simple solution I've discovered is to email the articles to yourself directly through UpToDate. Then, if you have a PDA which can receive email, like the Treo or Blackberry, you're able to read the articles later at your leisure.

I tried this out today. While riding the elevator, I quickly reviewed the latest on inferior vena cava filters, screening for carotid stenosis, and Gitelman's syndrome.

This solution would also work for any large text file, like a newspaper article, that you could email to yourself.
