You're seeing a patient with a headache, fever, and stiff neck. You know he needs an LP. You've done plenty of these procedures before but it's been four months since the last one. Is his INR of 1.3 a contraindication? Do I need to get a head CT before doing the LP? Exactly which direction is best to aim the needle? Wouldn't it be great if you could pull out your iPhone or iPod touch wherever you are and double check some of this key information for the procedure? Or even better, why not take a few minutes and watch a video of an expert proceduralist demonstrating an LP while narrating it step-by-step? Now you can with this break through App for your iPhone and iPod touch.

5/5 stars

Great App

:
Very impressed with multiple ways to review the essentials of procedures. I teach family medicine residents and often would like to be able to do a quick review just before we do the procedure. Good reference for both them and me. Videos are very high quality. Navigation is simple and fairly intuitive. Very convenient without having to get on the internet.

5/5 stars

Great App for common hospital procedures that IM and FP doctors would do.

:
I learned most of these techniques more than 20 years ago and this is a very nice app that acts as a refresher for those of us that don't do these very often and as a teaching tool to help those learning these techniques. The videos are outstanding. Thank you. Also I really appreciate the sale price. I wouldn't have known about this except I got an email from Meistermed (I am a registered Palm OS user their).

5/5 stars

Perfect teaching tool

:
I love that this app is locally stored. The instructional text and guide to equipment needed for each procedure is invaluable. The video quality is perfect. Extremely worth it.
