Not As Accurate As I Hoped

I was initially excited about this app. But soon after I started entering values while on an ICU rotation, I realized it wasn't exactly accurate. Like others mentioned, it uses predicted values instead of calculated values. Some of the answers are technically correct, like the app may say "respiratory acidosis, metabolic alkalosis" instead of meaning the metabolic alkalosis is partially compensated. Either way, I don't trust this app enough to use it in a bind.

Wrong Many Times

Free or otherwise, this app is wrong too often. As a quick example, say pH is 7.56 (hi), pCO2 is 12 (low), and HCO3 is 26 (normal). Anyone with a medical background should realize this is acute respiratory alkalosis. However, this app says respiratory alkalosis & metabolic alkalosis. Oops.

Great App

This is simple and fast. Works great!
