This is an excellent app but I find myself wanting to add pathophysiology and physiology notes. It would be helpful if we had ability to add topics ourselves to those notes as well e.g. adding topic of “Bezold Jarish Reflex” under a physiology section. Maybe create a login to Vargo online so that if we change phones, or the app changes, we are guaranteed to keep the information we have stored on Vargo (online) rather than just depending on iCloud.
This app is a great resource for me as a SRNA. It would be nice to also have a category for anesthetic implications of comorbidities, such as pulmonary hypertension, cirrhosis, etc.
Appreciate the information in this app. Fairly user friendly and intuitive to find what I need. Would love to see ERAS sets incorporated
I love Vargo. Please bring back cm and kg in the BMI calculator, it disappeared with the latest update.
Under Peds precedex, dose for smooth emergence is written at 0.5mg/kg. That’s a lot of precedex. Should be mcg.
Like to update but the search by cases is broken now You posed ebv/abl calculator
I paid quite a bit of money for the app, but if I could get my money back I would! The pediatric tables are completely blank, this is specifically what I bought it for. Completely useless and vargo has not responded to any reviews with the same issues.
Pediatric equipment and tables is non functional. Specifically purchased for pediatrics.
Where has all the kilogram age information had gone since the last update? Every single category is now blank? This is one of the most essential tools from this app? Could you please answer ?
I’m unable to see weight based pedi tables drugs etc. what happened??
