Description

ASRA Coags transforms the ASRA (American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine) Anticoagulation Guidelines into a quick and easy reference for your practice. It provides rapid access to drug-specific summary information.

This version combines both the 2018 Regional Anesthesia guidelines from the publication “Regional Anesthesia in the Patient Receiving Antithrombotic or Thrombolytic Therapy; American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Evidence-Based Guidelines (Fourth Edition)” and the 2018 Interventional Pain guidelines from the publication “Interventional Spine and Pain Procedures in Patients on Antiplatelet and Anticoagulant Medications (Second Edition); Guidelines From the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, the European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the International Neuromodulation Society, the North American Neuromodulation Society, and the World Institute of Pain.”

You have direct access to either the Regional guidelines or Pain guidelines in one app or you can choose either one as the default starting point if your practice is focused on a specific area.

Regional Guidelines:
1. You can search for drugs by brand name or generic name
2. Get recommendations based on the block type (e.g. neuraxial, peripheral) and the intervention type (e.g. placing a block or removing a catheter)
3. Access more detailed information for any drug by using the "info" button:
• Method of Action for each drug.
• Executive Summary for each drug.
• The Full 2018 ASRA Regional guideline in PDF form.

Pain Guidelines:
1. You can search for drugs by brand name or generic name
2. You can get recommendations for:
• High, Intermediate, and Low Risk Procedures
• Modifiers for patients at higher bleeding risk
• Herbal Medications
• Antidepressant medications
• When to restart medications after a procedure
4. Access more detailed information for any drug by using the "info" button:
• Method of Action for each drug.
• Executive Summary for each drug.
• The Full 2018 ASRA Pain guideline in PDF form.

Better than the first version

I work in a very busy interventional pain practice. I work with many different nurses of widely varying skill I was hopeful that the new guidelines would be something that the nurses could use to help me streamline practices. They do not.

This updated app Is quite clunky to use however it’s a whole lot better than going back to the original multi page guidelines.

App developer needs to remove version number from App name

iOS now puts all app names in the custom autocorrect dictionary on iPhone. When you install this ASRA Coags app, it appears as “Coags 2.1” in your app menu. As a result, any time you type the number “21” in any app, iOS will try to autocorrect it to “2.1” because it thinks you are trying to type the name of this app. Try it… you’ll see I’m correct. Deleting the Coags app is the only way to get iOS to stop changing the number “21” to 2.1 in autocorrect.

I’ve contacted the app developer previously. They are stubborn and refuse to remove the version number from the app name in iOS despite this problem. The version number is irrelevant anyway since iOS has automatically updated apps since version 6 or 7 of iOS.

I delete the app and reinstall it about once a month to get info from it, then immediately delete it again.

Great app but missing some anticoagulants

I think it's a simple to use, well put together app, but it is missing some newer anticoagulants, I know there is no good data for many of these but it would still be nice to have some information such as half life, etc of these newer drugs.
