Educational tool taking you from age or weight to situation specific drugs & doses in 2 touches.
We all know that one of the hardest things about dealing with very sick children is the wide variety of sizes they come in!
Currently we use ‘guesstimate’ formula for weight, based on age in years, and then derive the correct doses of various drugs either from memory or formularies, whilst simultaneously dealing with the acutely sick child.
These guesstimates are known to be either wildly inaccurate or so complex and convoluted that they trip you up just when you are at your most stressed. However referencing against the gold standard charts is hugely time consuming in the acute situation.
Paeds ED is a proof of concept educational tool that converts the age of the child in weeks, months, or years (including premature babies) into weight by referencing to WHO weight charts, increasing accuracy by up to 25%.
Paeds ED then offers the user a list of emergency clinical situations to chose from.
