Description

ASRA Coags 2.1 transforms the ASRA (American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine) Anticoagulation Guidelines into a quick and easy reference for your practice. It provides rapid access to drug-specific summary information.

This version combines both the 2018 Regional Anesthesia guidelines from the publication “Regional Anesthesia in the Patient Receiving Antithrombotic or Thrombolytic Therapy; American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Evidence-Based Guidelines (Fourth Edition)” and the 2018 Interventional Pain guidelines from the publication “Interventional Spine and Pain Procedures in Patients on Antiplatelet and Anticoagulant Medications (Second Edition); Guidelines From the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, the European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the International Neuromodulation Society, the North American Neuromodulation Society, and the World Institute of Pain.”

You have direct access to either the Regional guidelines or Pain guidelines in one app or you can choose either one as the default starting point if your practice is focused in a specific area.

Regional Guidelines:
1. You can search for drugs by brand name or generic name
2. Get recommendations based on the block type (e.g. neuraxial, peripheral) and the intervention type (e.g. placing a block or removing a catheter)
3. Access more detailed information for any drug by using the "info" button:
• Method of Action for each drug.
• Executive Summary for each drug.
• The Full 2018 ASRA Regional guideline in PDF form.

Pain Guidelines:
1. You can search for drugs by brand name or generic name
2. You can get recommendations for:
• High, Intermediate, and Low Risk Procedures
• Modifiers for patients at higher bleeding risk
• Herbal Medications
• Antidepressant medications
• When to restart medications after a procedure
4. Access more detailed information for any drug by using the "info" button:
• Method of Action for each drug.
• Executive Summary for each drug.
• The Full 2018 ASRA Pain guideline in PDF form.

Worthless

This app fails on many levels. The point of having something like this is to look up the duration of action of medications. It doesn't do this. For example, I want to know how long after a dose of bivalirudin I can place an epidural. So I click on the "neuraxial" button under bivalirudin, and it tells me "not recommended." That's it, no other info. As an anesthesiologist, I already know this information. What I want to know is how long the medication lasts, what the pertinent risks are, and when it is safe to do a procedure after its administration. This app tells you none of that. It is also missing several newer anticoagulants, some of which have been out for well over a year. Even the interface is annoying since every time you open the app an ad pops up. Don't waste your money on this garbage.

Great app!

The ASRA consensus guidelines are something that I often have to reference, but it is a pain going to the website or searching some other way. This makes it very easy and immediately accessible. Great for anyone doing blocks - Anesthesiologists, ER docs, residents, or CRNAs. We need other apps like this!

Great app but missing some anticoagulants

I think it's a simple to use, well put together app, but it is missing some newer anticoagulants, I know there is no good data for many of these but it would still be nice to have some information such as half life, etc of these newer drugs.
