Searching for Tips
When it comes to using the ICU Pearls app it is quite user-friendly. As mentioned you can search by year and when you come across tips you want to remember you can mark them as a favorite. There are links to references so you can dig a little deeper, you can increase the font size to suit your preference, and tips can be sent to others by email. Navigation of the app can be accessed along the bottom bar on the screen. It's here you can access your favorite tips, perform a search, read the pearls of wisdom, and see the help tool.
As you read through the pearls you’ll find they are pretty short and to the point, which is exactly why you may wish to click on the reference link to learn more. The app itself is a bit dull and not very engaging, but for this one it's really about the content. It would be nice to see some more multi-media used just to help with these tips.
The ICU Pearls app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a great way to access tips that can help medical students and professionals. The app is fairly user-friendly but a bit dull in its presentation.
