Ratings and Reviews
There are way too many drugs that are no longer used and a lot of drugs that are commonly used that aren't in the formulary. I wish there was a way to add your own drugs. The calculators would be nice if they could be entered as pounds or kilograms. Currently only kilograms are an option. It would be nice to be able to enter the drug strength as well. Currently you have to convert mg to mil on on your own. It's faster to do the whole calculation than to use the calculator and then convert mg to ml. The ECG explanations ate nice. It would be nice if there were examples. The anatomy pictures are nice but I wish there were more of them. The typo of theet instead of teeth was pretty blatant. It makes me wonder what other typos there are. The idea is good and with a couple of updates it will be a great program.
I just bought this app and after just a minute looking at it, I wish I hadn't wasted the money.
Parts of the anatomy section are not helpful at all. For example the section on dental anatomy does not show a true dental chart-- needs to show how to properly number the teeth to be helpful. The nervous system anatomy just shows a full body drawing of a dog with line drawings of nerves -not helpful at all.
I looked at the calculation section and the calculator to determine fluid therapy has confusing set up -- there is not a place to enter percent dehydration. Also, the word dehydration is not even spelled correctly.
Looks like the app is a good idea that needs a lot of work.
No Professional Value
Very disappointed with this application. Many doses in the formulary are purely stated with no ranges and no source citations. I still found myself going to Plumb's to ensure the dose was correct and in multiple cases the doses differed. I was hoping the anatomy images would be good for client education, but you aren't able to zoom in on the image and many of the images appear as though they were copied and pasted from the internet with poor quality and out of proportion. Like other reviewers, I wish I could my money back on this one.
