Ratings and Reviews
Great Apps at any level!
I started picking up these apps when I was an SRNA but still find myself using them regularly as a CRNA It is an invaluable resource especially if you get an unusual case added to your room and you want to be
prepared. The peds app is great and easy to find drug doses appropriate size equipment and normal VS etc. broken down by age or weight, good tips like "smooth emergence" The drug box is worth the cost in itself easy to find info on the anesthesia drugs we give with real world uses and suggestions. The CABG app made me look like a rock star during my cardiac rotation. Very easy to follow step by step to allow you to look and feel prepared.
I strongly recommend this group of apps they are a great resource for new and experienced anesthesia providers.
Really good app...could be great!
Love all that this app offers for both new and seasoned anesthesia providers. The option to put in personal case notes is awesome, except the title of the note and the content are never the same as originally entered and there is no option for deletion of personal case notes. Would like to see this bug fixed.
App needs a section for referencing coexisting diseases with significant anesthesia considerations like valvular diseases, MS, sickle cell, congenital abnormalities etc. Please consider the addition of this feature!
Unmatched. Excellent resource.
Love this app, especially for peds. Buy it, use it.
I would like to see a greater emphasis on peer review of the case tips, perhaps even with unobtrusive citations to demonstrate concurrence with current evidence, and some mechanism to ensure an ongoing review of the case tips as evidence and practice changes. Some of the case tips definitely come across as the way one person approaches the case when there are several, perhaps better, approaches.
