For more than 25 years, Frank Shann’s little booklet has helped physicians all around the world prescribe drugs to children. DrugDoses now contains more than 2050 entries. It lists every drug commonly prescribed for systemic use in both adults and children.
The iOS version of the booklet gives you an enormous amount of information, which will be updated twice a year! You will therefore always have the latest drugs, which will only be available in the paper version in a year or two! We offer you the initial 2-year license, with all the updates. After that period, as you will need to keep the drugs database updated, we offer you the possibility to purchase a lifetime license for only 5$!
The iOS version has also lots of other features: more than 150 current laboratory values and a useful cardiology database.
DrugDoses also integrates PedCalc. It contains the most common pediatric scores and formulas:
- ASA score
- Alveolo-arterial gradient
- Anion gap
- Apgar score
- Blunt abdominal trauma score
- Body mass index
- Body surface area
- Corrected Ca
- Creatinine clearance - measured
- Creatinine clearance - estimated
- Drip rate*
- Endotracheal tube sizes
- Genta dosing*
- Glasgow Coma Score
- Glasgow Outcome Scale
- Heparin dosage*
- Maintenance fluids
- NACA score
- Neonatal central lines
- Oxygen index
- PaO2/FiO2 ratio
- Parkland formula
- Pediatric trauma score
- Predicted height
- Predicted spirometry values
- Tubular phosphate reabsorption
- Vanco dosing*
* These calculations are not currently available, due to regulatory issues
We have also integrated Frank Shann's Pediatric Critical Care Guidelines. The booklet contains all the latest guidelines available for pediatric critical care. Our new feature contains all the 67 chapters of the booklet, ranging from Analgesia & Sedation to Ventilation.
PICU Guidelines is fully searchable, and will save your personal notes, as well as give you the possibility to sen them to colleagues.
PICU Guidelines is available via an InApp purchase. Once you've bought it, you'll be give free access to all future updates of this great reference. However, if you already have the separate app, it will unfortunately not entitle you to get this in-app version.
By the way, did you know that by becoming a fan of DrugDoses on Facebook (http://facebook.drugdoses.net), you can directly request new features and get information on the updates and changes in the database?
Thanks and congrats!"

Ratings and Reviews
Very annoyed - double dipping
I have moved from using Franks book to the app when it first appeared in the App Store. I’m certain there was no “2 year” license at the time. The app is great but I’m sure the updates have slipped in this 2 year thing. It’s flat out greedy double dipping and I’m very upset about it. App content itself rates five stars. Admin crew looking after it rates one star. Would love to hear a developer response.
I bought this app years ago. I recall no explanation of licensing options at the time. Now it is expected that a second payment is made for a “lifetime license” to continue using the app. Is this even permissible under App Store rules? It sets a bad precedent. I would like to hear the developer response.
Thank you for this feedback. In the iTunes description, we do indeed state that the app comes with a two-year free update period, after which users will have to purchase a lifetime license. This has been implemented to avoid an unfair competition between the app and the booklet. Users who have the booklet must buy a new one every two to three years. We are sorry about this.
Every time I make a payment it says I’m not allowed to make a payment.:
