What great medical content.

I read the few negative comments regarding finding questions but when I went into the app I was able to find the questions I was looking for quite easily. Thank you so much for taking the time to put together such a great medical tool.

Good content poor app

Statpearls is an amazing resource. However, not sure why there is no search function within the app. Also no outlines available. Similar apps like uptodate has a much better user interface. The app design is really poor and difficult to navigate.

Purchased the TCRN questions. I can’t recommend this app. By the end I was aggravated and quickly deleted it. Here are my issues:

Some of the 700 questions were management of a medical (not trauma) condition, other were clearly directed towards MDs (surgical technique for hip fx, what type of sutures to use, etc).

Other questions were difficult to understand as they seem to have been translated from another language.

Some just flat out had had an incorrect answer and the right answer in the rationale section.

On the burn questions you had a 50/50 shot of guessing whether the fluid formula would use the 2 or 4 ml calculation.
