#Recently featured in the BMJ, The Lancet and on ITV News# The Paediatric Emergency Drugs (Paeds Drugs) App combines years of clinical experience in the care of critically ill children with hand-held technology. The application uses formulas designed and developed by the team at the South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS) and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit of the Evelina Children's Hospital, Guy's and St Thomas' Trust, London. UBQO has distilled this clinical excellence and put it in the palm of your hand.

Clinicians and nurses in the south east of England rely on the STRS team for guidance and advice as to how to deal with paediatric emergencies. Paediatric Emergency Drugs brings together key pieces of this knowledge and experience in a simple to use, offline and convenient application to facilitate dealing with clinical emergencies in children. Calculations are now available without the need for a computer or access to the internet. After the entry of patient age and weight, results are quickly presented in a logical and clear manner. Simple, concise and to the point.

Paeds Drugs is useful for nurses, doctors, ambulance crew and everyone who needs key Paediatric Drug data in their pocket

Customer Reviews

Great with a few caveats!

A few anaesthetic doses are not correct (so beware) and some useful infusions are missing.
Also, the app is designed for the iPhone 4 (we're now on the 6s four years on and this looks fairly outdated [even worse on the plus]).
However, apart from that it's a great app to have on hand, especially when attending emergencies in A&E and you need to get quick figures.

General paed nurse

Great app, lovely to have something British to use rather than just American based. Very useful when nursing a sick child or waiting for retrieval team. Great to have in a transfer too. Gets a lot of use from me! Have recommended it to my friends too! thank you!

Ok with a few omissions

Downloaded this to use in emergencies as adult ICU bod occasionally called to A&E to offer airway support. Ok but no atracurium dose, infusion section is confusing and says dilute in xxml of whatever but does not say how much of drug? Also not ketamine infusion thought this was increasingly used now? Also thiopentone dose is to low at 2mg/kg. otherwise ok
