Ratings and Reviews
App contains videos on how to do many basic technique like IV insertion or shoulder reductions. Nicely done though I would welcome seeing the app expanded with many other procedures.
They tell you exactly how to do each procedure and include other facts. Very well done and interesting. Highly recommended.
Videos Won't Play
Videos won’t play on my iphone 7 with iOS 10.3.3. I hope the company can solve this glitch. I tried shutting phone down and re-starting . deleting the the app and then re-installing and still the videos won't run.
