Learn the fundamentals of anesthesiology in the context of real patients
This free application includes 1 sample case study from the 53 that are available through an in-app purchase of $29.99 of Case Files Anesthesiology.
With this system, you will learn in the context of real patients, rather than merely memorize facts.
Each case has been designed for the iPad and iPhone/iPod with interactive features.
The [app] targets medical students, but even junior anesthesia trainees would find it very compelling . . . Although it has the appearance of a handbook, this [app] is an overview of clinical anesthesiology. It takes a simulation approach to drive home essential concepts of anesthesia management in different disease conditions. Of all the handy [apps] out there, this is perhaps the only one that teaches anesthesia in the context of real patients rather than merely stating facts. It would be an invaluable aid to medical students doing anesthesia clerkships or junior anesthesia trainees who need a quick review for an emergency case in the middle of the night.”
