  • Best app I own

    By Dinging st
    This is the best app. I have used it for four years now and love it. The drug info that was added is superb. Keep adding more stuff! I would love to see a coexisting morbidities section
  • App great, awesome info

    By Frankandbeans769
    App crashes whenever I add a note to anything, still saves the information though.
  • Very nice

    By rebaoo
    If you can add chapter for co- existing diseases related to anesthesia and how to deal with it ; thanks alot
  • Great App, larger text please

    By GonzagaDNAP
    I've had the app for greater than a year now. I'm a second year SRNA and love the significant volume of information the app offers. Only request is larger text for the tables and dosages. Please continue to update and add information. I paid full price and I think it's worth it. Too many of my cohort have multiple apps that provide the same information or less than Vargo.
  • Excellent app

    By betterjeff
    Would be even better if I could bookmark specific pages. When backspacing/deleting the entry it takes you out of the search bar & makes you start over. But OVERALL this is my favorite anesthesia app.
  • Awesome

    Great app for quick information and calculations! Too much to go into detail. Definitely worth the money for clinicals and practice
  • Easy to use

    By KristinTX
    I just bought this in preparation to start my clinical residency. It is designed well, includes more than I expected it to, and is very easy to navigate. While there are a few simple spelling errors that I recommend be corrected, it appears to be a very well-designed app for SRNA's.
