Does any one use anesthesia central or anesthesia constellation on a regular basis in the clinical setting? They are both new PDA programs that are supposed to be an all-in-one reference source for anesthetists. It is approx. $150 to buy. I have tried the anesthesia central trial version, which I like. However, I would like to know if it is inclusive enough that you don't need any other anesthesia reference programs. It would not be much more to purchase what most people suggest on other PDA threads (5 Min Clinical Consult, Manual of Anesthesia Practice, and Sota Omoigui's Anesthesia Drugs).

Be sure to get the Anesthesia Manuel of Massachusets General Hospital. A great book. Its about a 40$ book or PDA via skyscape.com. It has helped me many times in clinical.

How does the U Mass PDA program compare with the text? I know, for example, that the Barash handbook on PDA pales in comparison to the actual handbook itself, as many tables, charts, ect. have been omitted. Thanks.
