Nice app

Nice app, but not as helpful as Id hoped. Would really appreciate if they added case tips for more surgical procedures. It seems like most of the surgeries I try to read up on are not listed in the app. Search functions are frustrating. Only searches first word of a topic (E.g. Cant search "cefazolin" because its listed as "ancef (cefazolin)").

Excellent app

Would be even better if I could bookmark specific pages.

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.

Great App!

Great app! Perfect when needing a quick review. All the updates and additions have been great.

Can be misleading

The app I found has a good amount of information, but I found some errors within it that is not correct and can be misleading. For ketamine I found it said it was a kappa antagonist, when in fact it is a kappa agonist. Kind of find it hard to trust some of the information now to be honest. I would expect for more accurate information especially when the app is at a cost of $60.00, which is a hefty price.

IPhone 4s

Cannot see entire app on my screen. Spending money paying the student loan monster, so no phone upgrade for only THIS app. Do recommend. Good quick info at your fingertips. Fix screen issues for backward compatibility and would give 5+ stars.

A must for SRNAs!

This app is pretty awesome! I use it for drugs and to review for cases to make my care plans. The app is succinct and has been an invaluable asset during CRNA school!
