Our user-friendly logbook for anaesthesia and critical care automatically links your logbook cases to relevant review articles from popular journals, such as BJA education and Anaesthesia.
We designed forms that allow lightning fast data entry. Our "Smart form" hides irrelevant procedures and anaesthetic techniques based on the speciality of your case. You can still expand fields to show all procedures or add free text items that are not in the list. Below is a video that shows our new Progressive Web App running on a mobile phone.
Focusing on education
This is the first logbook that specifically focuses on education and exam revision. Our database covers hundreds of review articles from the BJA education, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Anaesthesia and New England Journal of Medicine. This is a fairly new database and new resources are being published on a weekly basis.
Linking cases to the curriculum allows you to have a quick overview of what part of the currciulum you could discuss next with your supervisor in theatre. This also helps with starting Workplace Based Assessments (WBAs), especially as you now have to link WBAs to the curriculum in the new RCoA Lifelong Learning Platform.
This is the first anaesthetic logbook that works on all platforms (iOS, Windows, Chrome OS) and devices (phone, tablet or computer) by using modern web technologies. We created a Progressive Web App (PWA) that installs when you first login, there is no need to visit an app store. You can run the app within your browser, even when no internet connection is available, or install it directly to your home screen for more frequent use. To use the app, you need a modern browser such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Safari. Here are the key features of our Progressive Web App:
Offline first: Loads fast on slow network connections, work offline, and automatically synchronises your cases with the cloud once you are back online
Installable: Installs to your home Screen like any native app
Responsive: Works on desktop, mobile and tablet
Multi-platform: Works on Chrome OS 68, Windows 10, iOS 11.3 and Mac OSX 10.13
Safe: Uses HTTPS which prevents content-tampering and man-in-the-middle attacks
You can find out more about Progressive Web Apps in our blog.
Our app can also be found on Google Play and on the Microsoft Store:
