This app focuses on the potentially life-threatening reactions that can occur when administering iodine or gadolinium radiographic contrast to patients. Included are clinical presentation descriptions, pictorial examples and suggested treatment regimens for various types of contrast reactions. Also included are an estimated GFR calculator for adults, an overview of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) with clinical examples and current risk criteria, a suggested treatment regimen for contrast extravasation, and steroid premedication regimens.
Does a good job for adults but no pediatric info. Peds dosing has been included in the small Mayo pocket guide for years and distributed at the ARLS course. It's the hardest to remember and not having it included is a big hole in the emergency safety net. Therefore 3 stars.
