Don't be fooled...

Don't be fooled by early ratings. Without a subscription, you won't see any content, so people may have expected "something for nothing."
This is quality reference material for anybody practicing in anesthesiology. While I initially subscribed to "Anesthesia Central" for my Treo phone, I was disappointed that an on device app had not been available when I jumped to the iPhone. That is, until now. When I downloaded and signed into the app, a current copy of Anesthesia Central was downloaded. This occurred in spit of the fact that my subscription had expired long ago. This bears repeating... Even if your subscription is expired, you are entitled to have the content on the one device of your choice. Of course, there will be no content updating without a current subscription. In terms of content, it is presented either in portrait or landscape in an easy to read font and you latest position is saved when exiting and relaunching the app.
My only "complaint" is that I would like to see a reduced rate for yearly subscriptions... It seems excessive to have to pay $150 each year just to keep current, especially as there is no scheduled update cycle. And yes, I am aware that web access is included in the subscription. $150 is very reasonable for an initial fee, but continuous yearly subscriptions should be offered at a reduced rate. Are you listening Unbound Medicine?

Simply Phenomenal

I bought this just a couple days ago. I am a student and am about to start clinical and just knew I needed it to be a step ahead of the game! I have been reviewing it at home and it has every bit of information needed for anesthesia and much much more! Worth every penny! I will tell all my fellow students about this.

Comprehensive for my needs

Device: iPhone 4 (Verizon)

I'm very pleased with this app. I really only wanted a drug guide on my device, but I realized that having a more compact [than textbook] reference would be more handy and less cumbersome while in my small anesthesia workspace (I'm a newbie CRNA). I've used both Davis and Sota drug guides on my Palm for many years, but when I saw what Anesthesia Central had to offer when compared to Skyscape's Anesthesia Constellation, it fit the bill. No more separate ACLS app, no more separate procedures app, no more separate diagnostic tests app, etc. I've yet to put it through its paces if given an opportunity perioperatively, yet I'm sure as I journey along my career, the information within will become second-nature. Until then, I like what I've seen (read) so far. Information is quick to find and focuses on anesthetic implications (no fluff)!
