Veterinary anaesthesia app now on Android too

Vetnapp, an anaesthesia app originally developed for Apple devices by European specialist in anaesthesia and analgesia Alastair Mair to save time and increase clinical accuracy, is now available for Android.

Vetnapp offers a secure alternative to traditional paper records, allowing for the entry of drugs administered, recording of physiological parameters (for example, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure), and recording complications occurring during an anaesthetic.

The final anaesthetic chart can be converted to a PDF and attached to patient records, simplifying the paper trail. 

Alastair, who works at Willows Referrals, says his motivation for developing the app was born out of frustration with handwritten anaesthetic records which can often be incomplete, illegible and easily lost. 

Alastair said: "Vetnapp is excellent for ease of data entry via the use of sliders and drop-down lists. It also stores records, allowing easy retrieval, which is not possible with paper records. 

"Now the app is available for both Apple and Android devices, it is much more accessible. I have even had people downloading it in Australia, America and China, which is fantastic."

"It’s still very much early days and I hope its popularity grows over time. Ideally, I would like it to be downloaded by veterinary groups, as well as independent practices."

To download Vetnapp, visit the App Store or Google Play and search 'Vetnapp'.
