Rated 4/5 based on 2 customer reviews.
bare bones start
basically this program has 19 preset EKG rhythms. you push a number and the rhythm pops up. that's essentially all this app does. the defibrillator does nothing more than makes an obnoxious sound and no sound on the actual shock button press. a little "kachunk" would have been a nice touch. turning the dial is awkward in that you have to push down on the little numbers to set your joules. the bp cuff sound actually has an ekg beep in the background. a better sound clip could have been used. the results magically appear on the screen making the b/p simulation very lackluster (no dropping systolic numbers to the actual bp type thing). i think it would be a very nice add-on to have the rhythms change after a shock is delivered. the beeping from the ekg machine does not line up with the dynamic ekg shown on screen.
overall the program has the potential be extremely useful. especially after pacing and cardioversion are added. i hope the developers work out the rough edges because at it's current condition it's not worth the $10 i spent on it.
After reading the other review, I felt a little reluctant to purchase the app, but was very glad I did. I spent a little more time trying to operate the application and found that you are in fact able to customize your blood pressure, RR, SpO2, and ECG rhythms to change at a certain time you designate...you can do so by hitting the settings icon at the bottom of the main screen. If you don't want to customize your own scenarios, it appears you can just click the numbers at the top of the main screen to change the cardiac rhythm. Definitely worth the money, as an ECG simulator alone can cost about $500, and that doesn't even include the price of a defibrillator/monitor.
Overall, a very useful app taking the place of an ECG simulator and defibrillator/monitor in one for use in medical training. I agree it will be great to have the pacer/cardioverter features and would be nice if the developer could add a small section describing how to use the settings ect.
