‘Paediatric Emergencies’ includes algorithms from the following organisations:

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’ which has been derived from the 50th centile for age and sex from World Health Organisation (WHO) growth charts. This increases the accuracy of the results provided by the application compared to using the standard formula (age in years + 4) x 2 for estimating weight.

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.
