The portable brain has been a fixture in the pockets of most medical students, residents and practicing providers of all designations. The evolution began with the spiral-bound mini text
that pretty much served no purpose other than to identify you as a newb. After that, came the clunky palm pilot which introduced us to the virtues of handhelds and portable medical references a la ePocrates. The iPhone has proven to be the next logical step in that evolution.
We have had the opportunity to evaluate many an app over the years since the iPhone app store was launched. Our experiences with them will be chronicled on this page. Our reviews are unbiased and from anesthesia practitioners on the front lines using these apps in everyday practice.
Disclosure: In most cases, we are fronting the cost of purchasing and evaluating each app personally with our own time and money. We will be including a link at the end of each review which will take you to the iTunes store. We get a small (pennies in most cases) affiliate fee if you purchase the app through us.
