Could be great
This app could be great, but it has errors. I would not use it to treat patients. Great for reminding or refreshing your knowledge, but use the websites to verify and cross reference. The first section I looked at had a major error. It lists a possible cause of increased platelet count to be essential thrombocyTOPENIA instead of thrombocyTHEMIA. This would basically be the opposite of true. Needs an option to submit errors on each page when we find them so they can be corrected, then I would give 6 stars!
Great info - lots of typos makes me nervous
It's almost as though whoever wrote the descriptions has autocorrect on... there are lots and lots of typos where it's a real word just not the right one. (I'd say about half the entries I've looked at so far). While I haven't come across any wrong numerical values, the typos need fixing and are a bit disconcerting in regard to credibility. Please fix! So I can give the 5 stars u deserve.
An additional suggestion would be to add a quiz mode to the app, like grasp for nursing central.
From RN to NP
This is one my go-to apps for quick reference. It has served me well as a nurse and continues to be a favorite as I work through my FNP program. I also appreciate the excellent customer support. My suggestion email was answered by the developer right away and my feedback was incorporated into an update. Very happy with Pocket Lab Values.
