This app is like a gold mine for SRNAs. It is the best resource you will use as a student and probably for the rest of your career as a CRNA.

It has everything you could possibly want to look up whether that is to review information, learn new anesthesia stuff, or get insight on how you might want to perform a new case. All information included also has APA- cited references at the bottom, too.

The user interface is clean, neat, and organized. It has a search feature that is quick to display results, and it has tabs that allow for ease of finding what you want.

If you look at past reviews for anything less than 5 stars, it’s for things people want changed, updated, or improved. Each time, Vargo added the request in an update. For example, you can add your own notes which is extremely helpful. The app is frequently updated with new information or other features to make a continuously better experience for you. Plus, no additional monthly subscription fee and no data tracking. What more could you ask for?

Overall, it is an amazing little tool on your phone that you can take wherever you go. It’s something you will use in school and something you will use for the rest of your career, so it is 100% worth it. I would highly suggest this app for any SRNA!

Very easy to use. It is a great resource and I even used it as a bedside nurse to double check standard drug dosages when traveling to facilities that used different NMBs. It is quick and easy to access and has loads of information. They also recently added case tips which is awesome. Would recommend to any SRNA/CRNA and even bedside nurses who are travelers or switch types of units frequently who need to easily refresh on drug dosages and/or classes. It is a one time purchase. Some of the best money I have ever spent.

Must have app!

This app has been incredibly helpful, especially when placed in a case that I had not done in a while. The developer also updates the app on a regular basis, ie. recently adding cheat sheets that can be downloaded in seconds. And finally the customer service is outstanding. I have had this app for a few years, and the developer responds immediately when I have an issue. Definitely a must have in your anesthesia “library”.
