Quick and Easy

As a paediatric ED nurse in the UK this is one of my most used apps for any emergency that comes in. Provides rapid evidence for those drs who can’t agree and easily gives me the reassurance when having to give medications in an emergency situation (how much to give, how to dilute and how long for).
I seriously recommend paying for the whole app. Completely worth the money.

Generally great app- very valuable in urgent Paeds cases

As a UK emergency medicine doctor- this app is great. It pulls a lot of varied resources into one place and helps both narrow down the many calculations that might be needed (both actual and estimated). I also like that you can see links to PDFs with copies of the guidance it employs so you can verify information.

One small issue I have - and have only realised tonight- is that there is a section in the app where you are recommended podcasts to listen to. Located in “More” >> “Recommended Podcasts” you are presented with a list presumably curated by the developer. They’re mostly medical but the top one is “Daily Audio Bible”. This just sat with me as a bit in poor taste. All are entitled to their own views of course but I felt this to be inappropriate. It looks out of place being at top of a list in an emergency medical application and left me disappointed that it’s been put in there deliberately.


Great app but there is a bug

As an app, it is very useful, reliable and easy to use. Unfortunately there is a bug. When using the app at night, as the phone changes automatically to dark mode, it is not able to see the name of the guidelines and the number on the weight box. You can still select a box and the guideline will open although the name does not appear on the menu while on dark mode.
I hope this can be solved as it is a really good app.
