The Acetaminophen Infant Doser is an application that provides an easy to use and safe dosing calculator for infants and toddlers based on body weight ranges.
Acetaminophen is the most common medication given to infants and children in the United States. It is commonly used for fever management and pain control. Unfortunately, acetaminophen continues to be the most common medication that is overdosed and in many cases unintentionally. Over-dosage of acetaminophen is common and may cause significant damage to the liver, while under-dosing can be ineffective in treating fevers or pain. Many well intentioned parents will “guess” as what the dose should be and either under dose or over dose the medication.
The Acetaminophen Infant Doser is an application that clarifies the recommended dose of acetaminophen for both infant and toddlers. It provides a numerical value for the recommended dose in addition to a graphical representation of the medication dose in its respective dropper.
