Ambotek Five is an EMS, multi-modal, right-or-wrong, self-tester for vital signs, Apgar (APGAR) scores, the Glasgow Coma Scale, the Revised Trauma Score, and START and JumpSTART triage systems.
Five was created to help EMR, EMT, AEMT, and paramedic students and professionals master and remember critical medical guidelines. Students will find it useful to help prepare for a class test or a certification exam. Professionals will find it useful to help keep their skills sharp.

Developer’s note: Some phones this app has been tested on require more or less permissions than what is shown in the store listing. The required permission(s) are apparently hard-coded into MIT’s authoring software to allow access to background images or they are artifacts from pre-launch versions of Five. Assuming your phone permits it, you should be able to block all permissions without affecting the app’s performance. No permissions were explicitly granted during this app’s development.
