‘Paediatric Emergencies’ provides the healthcare professional with the time critical information they need when treating an acutely unwell child. The application covers the following emergencies:
•Congenital Heart Disease
•Local Anaesthetic Toxicity
•Normal Physiological Values
•Raised Intracranial Pressure
‘Paediatric Emergencies’ includes algorithms from the following organisations:
Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG), Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI), British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED), British Thoracic Society (BTS), College of Emergency Medicine (CEM), Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPSNI), Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF), National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), Paediatric Accident and Emergency Research Group, Resuscitation Council (UK), Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children (RBHSC), Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines (SIGN) and Toward Optimized Practice (TOP).
The easy to use interface and navigation features make it easy for the user to quickly find the information they need and make this application a real joy to use. Important design features include:
•The option to enter age in ‘Years, Months and Days’ or as ‘Date of Birth’
•If known weight can be entered in ‘Kg’ or ‘Lb/Oz’
•If weight is not known the application will provide an ‘estimated weight’ using your preference of the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) formulae or the 50th centile for age and sex from World Health Organisation (WHO) growth charts.
This application is a must for any Paediatrician, Anaesthetist, Emergency Department Physician or any healthcare professional who as some stage may find themselves looking after an acutely unwell child.

Ratings and Reviews
Thanks Apple for rendering this app useless! The whole idea is to avoid simple calculation mistakes and save time in high stress situations; who wants to be looking up and searching for answer in references provided? Will be looking for another app... Only giving it one star because won't let me give less.
