    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
