Block Buddy is proud to partner with Global Response Management to help assist their life-saving humanitarian work. With this new partnership, Global Response Management and Block Buddy will help victims in war-torn countries and other at-risk areas around the world.

The Innovative Block Buddy Pro App

As you may know, Block Buddy Pro is a mobile application that provides education for anesthesia providers about performing ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks and point of care ultrasound (POCUS). The app contains lessons with videos, detailed images, and descriptions, along with various other tools and resources. Block Buddy Pro can be purchased in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Global Response Management Offers Life-Saving Care

Global Response Management (GRM) is a medical nonprofit non-governmental organization (NGO)​ that provides emergency and trauma care in low-resource and high-risk areas​ across the globe. The Block Buddy Pro app will be utilized by GRM medics in the field when performing life-saving operations and procedures. Importantly, the app offers offline access that medics will use in areas with little to no WiFi access.
