    "Respiratory Therapy Flashcards 2018 is exactly what you'd expect from the title. I don't think this kind of learning is particularly useful so I don't like the app. I know others will disagree but I prefer more visual types of learning."

    "A lot of people underestimate the usefulness of apps like this but it's great for helping you get focused and relaxed in times of stress.
