Don’t hesitate! Just buy it!

I’ve been using this app since I was a SRNA in 2016. It’s a must have as a student but I still find myself using it when I’m in cases I don’t do very often. I love the pediatrics dosages by weight when I’m in a pinch. The OB section and the calculations section are super helpful. It’s basically anything you need to know about anesthesia in the palm of your hand. I would rate higher than 5 stars if it would let me! Thanks Vargo!

Very Useful App

This App is wonderful for both anesthesia residents and practicing anesthesia providers. It has pertinent calculators, quick references for rarely used drugs, specific case tips, and refreshers for obstetric and cardiac anesthesia topics. Worth the buy, especially for students.

Gold standard in Anesthesia

5
There’s no other Anesthesia related app that compares. Regardless of being a SRNA, CRNA, AA, or Anesthesiologist; this app is the gold standard for utilization. Drug dosing and case set up have helped me enormously as a student and further prepared me once I was working independently. An absolute must have.

Review

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.

A MUST-HAVE APP FOR SRNAs!

5
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!
