No substitute.

Please update! Its been months- this is such a critical tool for providers across several disciplines. I dont know if you guys are EM/EMS, but its pretty clear that they designers of similar apps are not. 10sEM was one of 5-6 “must have” tools before the OSx update and I would not have updated if I had known. Similar apps seem to not recognize the importance of the features that made 10sEM great- minimalistic “need to know” answers accessible at maximum speed of an easily navigable interface (we call it “toddler friendly”) for times when you cannot make precise movements with fingers. Instead other apps have either prohibitively slow loading screens, or data dispersed in a needlessly complex, multi-layered/branched tree, or interfaces that require warm, non-bloody/muddy/gloved fingers, OR most maddeningly of all, ramble on excessively about irrelevancies while failing to provide the few things that you really need now- ie the dosing for that rarely used 2nd/3rd line medication.

So, please come back. I think we would all be better for it. Ill even buy it again.

Update needed!

Please update this app. It had a lot of useful formulas and images that were easily accessible on shift. Got it when it first came out and can’t believe there’s still no update! This used to be a daily go to for so much. Especially things not necessary to memorize when you had such an amazing app. Please update. Would be willing to pay for it!

What’s up guys I really love your 10 second EMS app and I am really wondering why you have not updated it to work on the new iPhone updates. I just passed my NREMT Paramedic Psychomotor examination and will be working on the rig pretty soon and I would like to continue to use this app I truly think that it is not just for ER doctors. It is a vital tool for any Paramedic’s tool box.
