App Reviews

  • 5 start app and customer service

    By Youshouldfixthis
    As an SRNA I love this app. I had a CRNA initially pay for my app as well as 3 other students’ at a MOANA conference (thank you sir!). The app just keeps getting better and better and is a top resource for me in clinical. I recently had a glitch on my new iPhone and new iOS update that rendered me Block Buddy-less. The developers of block Buddy were QUICK to help me (I’m talking within the hour) and made things right for me. 5 stars!!!!
  • Fantastic, efficient block app with one flaw

    By Billyg23
    Constantly updated with the latest blocks and techniques. Pictures and video included. Quick and easy to use. Highly recommended. Update: This app is fantastic, except for one flaw. All pictures and videos are now stored on a server instead of on your device. My hospital, as well as others that I know of, block this data so the app is practically useless while I'm at work. Please let us at least have the option to download all data to our devices.
  • Best USGRA App

    Even though I have been a CRNA for awhile, I find myself frequently checking my block buddy app to improve my regional technique. It is easy to use, concise, and the illustrations are wonderful. Great product.

    This is hands down the best app in anesthesia! There is a huge amount of information as well as being easy use. It's a must have for people new to blocks and it is great for a quick review of those blocks you don't do too often. Highly recommend!

    By Skylarp23
    This is a must if performing or tying to learn regional anesthesia. I do many blocks at my facility and have studied many different resources. This is one of the best in my opinion. The videos, pictures, and descriptions are accurate and user friendly! Great all around App!
  • The best app for blocks!

    By MF CRNA
    I have had this app for well over a year, and it is truly the best $10 I have ever spent in anesthesia. The guys at WRAE are true professionals, and care about making a comprehensive and up-to-date product. Any questions, concerns, and/or requests are addressed promptly. Be at the cutting edge of regional anesthesia and buy this app!! Your patients will thank you ❤❤ WRAE also does block classes 😉
