This phone app is a welcome addition to the textbook A Practice of Anesthesia for Infants and Children, Elsevier, Inc (by Charles J. Coté, Jerrold Lerman and Brian Anderson).
This very user-friendly design and interface of the advanced app presents a trove of valuable clinical information for the practitioner. Specifically, the app includes a quick drug calculator for most pediatric anesthesia and critical care medications (including antibiotics, sedatives and local anesthetics), management of emergency situations including anaphylaxis, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, difficult airway algorithms, and malignant hyperthermia, as well as diagrams of all major congenital heart lesions complete with bullet points for their anesthesia related management. In addition, guidelines for blood component therapy, dosing of inotropes, diagnosis and management of diabetes insipidus, endotracheal tube size based on age and much more important information is included. This advanced app version will be updated approximately every 6 months with exciting new data, tables and diagrams.
Ratings and Reviews
Won’t open with new OS update
*Edit #2* This app has finally been updated and works well again. One of my favorites for a quick reference when taking care of the kiddos. Here’s hoping the developers are more responsive to updates in the future.
*Edit* I have changed my review to one star as several months later there is so no update and the app is entirely unusable. I paid for the pro version, and despite that, I still can't get any support. This is a five star app when it works, but the lack of support and updates make this a one star app currently.
I initially rated this 4 stars because of how helpful this app is. However, it won’t open after upgrading to the new OS. No support appears to be available via their website. Will get 5 stars when this gets addressed.
Developer Response ,
We're very sorry for some issue with iOS 11. The issue has been fixed and you can continue to use the app by updating to v1.2.0. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question. It will be great if you can review again.
With the last IOS upgrade, our app for Apple required several layers of modifications but we are pleased that it is now online and fully operational. Sorry for the interruption. The authors will be upgrading the app soon after the release of the next of the textbook A Practice of Anesthesia for Infants and Children in the first quarter of 2018.
I've been using this app for a few days now and it's made my days in the OR much easier and efficient. The app is very easy to use, intuitive, and loaded with useful information.
