Reviews of ICU Trials

outstanding. one of a kind

As an academic intensivist, I have been desperately looking for an app like this for quite some time. I very much like the professional way in which these ICU trials are presented. I will definitely use at the bedside as part of teaching rounds. I look forward to updates. This app is definitely worth a look if you are involved in ICU care.
