This app is brilliant! As an EMT I went to a gas cylinder explosion yesterday, this app was so helpful in working the total percentage of burns, was so easy to use and it worked it all out for me!

Life saving

Just heard about this in the radio. It's an app that tells you how much fluid to give a person after a burns accident. It's the same programme as what's used in hospitals. Hopefully I'll never have to use it.

Excellent work

Easy to use, very functional app which will be of great clinical use and demonstrates the altruism one always hopes to see in medicine. Thank you
