  • Superb app

    By ThreePete
    Well worth the price. Concise, authoritative, and easy to use.
  • Easiest app to use.

    This app does exactly what it's built to do. Great resource. In my top ten medical apps
  • Excellent!

    Prior to this app, your best option was to pour through the guidelines and make a quick reference table. That, or find one already done by another department. This app is an easy-to-use, always-with-me reference.
  • Nice simple app

    By Fleshpad
    The ASRA coag guidelines have always been deeply unmemorable and with this application I don't even have to pretend to keep them in my head. Nice to have on hand.
  • Great App

    By Em88956
    Easy to use and has all the rules to live by when you put needles in people for a living. Invaluable.
  • Just what we need in the OR

    Great reference for non-anesthesia personnel to guide treatment. Great for learners as well.
  • Worthless

    By Anesdoc93476
    This app fails on many levels. The point of having something like this is to look up the duration of action of medications. It doesn't do this. For example, I want to know how long after a dose of bivalirudin I can place an epidural. So I click on the "neuraxial" button under bivalirudin, and it tells me "not recommended." That's it, no other info. As an anesthesiologist, I already know this information. What I want to know is how long the medication lasts, what the pertinent risks are, and when it is safe to do a procedure after its administration. This app tells you none of that. It is also missing several newer anticoagulants, some of which have been out for well over a year. Even the interface is annoying since every time you open the app an ad pops up. Don't waste your money on this garbage.
  • Poor Quality

    By Nathon799
    Although it is a paid app, it still opens with an advertisement that cannot be skipped. Also has a bug that requests to follow your activity that will not allow a selection, thus freezing the app.
  • Great app but missing some anticoagulants

    By hanesm83
    I think it's a simple to use, well put together app, but it is missing some newer anticoagulants, I know there is no good data for many of these but it would still be nice to have some information such as half life, etc of these newer drugs.
  • Awesome

    By Ib2005
    This a great app! Something as critical as avoiding neuraxial anesthesia in patients on anticoagulation is self evident. With new anticoagulants coming out so frequently this app is a huge timesaver.
