    Would love the illustrated pictures for all the blocks and uses a lot of battery power when on in the background. But it's a really great app and use it for reference quite a bit. Full Review

    App will not open on my pixel 2, just remains on loading screen even with wifi connection, wondering if this is an issue with newest version of the app? Full Review

    Will not work without cell service or wifi. The hospital I'm at has poor wifi and cell service is spotty at best which makes this app unreliable in my clinical setting. Full Review

    I purchased this app at the recommendation of a friend. It is by far one of the best regional anesthesia apps I've used. Great pics and advice. I wish I had found this app years ago. Full Review

    Block Buddy Wow! Quite simply the best app based reference for performing peripheral nerve blocks. I have spent the last four years scouring the web for videos, photos and easy to read pearls and bullet points on blocks. This is the best single source app! Thanks WRAE! Can't wait to see your next app. The most recent update completes everything I need to many different blocks for the very busy ( 9,000 cases/yr) multi- specialty ambulatory surgery ctr I staff.

    What a great resource to have at your finger tips!!! Anatomy, sonoanatomy, and videos for the most common and some not so common blocks. Everything you need to refresh your memory and successfully perform these blocks. Full Review

    Block Buddy This is a great app for beginner and advanced practitioner. Perfect for students as well. The videos are well done and I can see this app being used reguarly to keep up to date. The makers of this app know their stuff and the price makes tis very attractive. I will refer all my anesthesia friends to get this app. Full Review
