I typically review apps individually.  These apps by Blue Tree Publishing are all very similar, so I decided to review them at once.  

If you’ve never heard of Blue Tree Publishing, they make incredible educational materials.  They started making educational apps which are great to share with patients, caregivers, physicians, nurses and anyone who may be interested.  The apps can be purchased individually or in a bundle.  


Each app offers a drawing that depicts each structure/function in the title.  The drawing can be viewed still or animated.


There is text that can be used to accompany the drawing or can be removed.  

With the swallowing apps, Aspiration Disorders, Oral Disorders, Swallow ID and Residue Disorders, a video of a modified barium swallow study showing the dysfunction is included on each app.  With the Aspiration Disorders app there is also a FEES video available of aspiration.

The Larynx ID does not have videos, but does have nice animations to show the muscle functions and the structures, including how they move.  Vocal Folds ID does have a video available showing the movement of the vocal cords during phonation.

These apps are definitely worth the money if you need a great educational app.
