  • Case tips not working

    By phiphi1234566789
    When I first downloaded this app, it worked great and the case tips tab worked. After one week, it seems like the app updated and now I can’t even open the case tips. Everything else in the app works great but the case tips is greyed out.

    Best Anesthesia App!
  • Decent app but has its flaws

    By Doindia
    Every time I update this app I lose all my notes. I see the memo about backing up all notes outside of the app, but this should be a “just Incase” not every time the app updates. The notes section is pointless to even have because in a few months updates will wipe them clean. Also missing some simple cases, even stuff that used to be there for instance tracheostomy yields nothing.
  • If you could choose one app to get me thru crna school

    By jahmclernan
    The best app out there!!! I honestly use this app everyday all day. It is so nice to know what I don’t is right at my finger tips in this app. Highly highly recommend this app for any SRNA. You can thank me later.
  • Great resource but....

    By HMQD
    How often does the app get updated? I wonder if the creators can add more procedures? Sometimes I’ll search for a relatively common procedure and it won’t show up. The design and layout also look like they could use an update as well.
  • Provides great info but UI is wack on iPad

    By AnonAAStudent
    Having issues fitting the screen in landscape mode. Doesn’t scroll properly and the anticoag section wont load. It’ll just highlight what i click but wont actually open it. I have to go to the “categories” and search for the drugs there instead of looking them up directly by name. App needs some DEV work.
