Great Anesthesia Apps

Memory Master for Nurse Anesthetist
iPhone Version: MemoryMaster for Nurse Anesthetist - Valley Anesthesia, Inc.
iPad Version: MemoryMaster for Nurse Anesthetist - Valley Anesthesia, Inc.
Memory Master for Nurse Anesthetist is a great review app specifically built for students who are in studying for the National Certifying Exam. If you are SRNA, you are well aware of Valley Anesthesia and know their successful methods in preparing you for the exam. It is on iTunes for $199 but is well worth it as it gives you access to 4000 questions and Valley Anesthesia has been the master in helping students pass boards.
