Ratings and Reviews
Easy information at your fingertips
Having this with you at the doctor or pharmacy puts a ton of relevant information into the palm of your hand. The NIHSS, in particular, is well done with good explanations that can serve as an adequate information resource for all healthcare professionals.
i have used the physical pocketcards from this company and i have always liked them. so when i saw the stroke pocketcards as an iphone app i purchased them right away. The navigation is easy and the content is really good
stroke scales are good
the stroke scales illustrated in this app are really helpful, have been a fan of this app for a long time now, i get timely and FREE updates, beats all other stroke related apps.
