Description

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 inaccurate, but referencing against the gold standard charts is hugely time consuming in the acute situation.

Peds ED 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%.

Peds ED then offers the user a list of emergency clinical situations to chose from.

Not US-friendly

AVEAT EMPTOR: This is a UK-focused application. MDs from the US may be disoriented. UI needs some polish, too. (I'd suggest using date of birth to calculate exact, with appropriate adjustments for prematurity. Also let us US physicians enter the weight in pounds if we want to -- we ask parent, "How much does your child weigh?" and the parent will undoubtedly give us the weight in pounds. Performing calculations-- even easy math like dividing by 2.2 -- is not optimal in emergency situations.) I guess I might have guessed when they used European spelling for "paediatric" throughout much of their website. It seems they have US and European descriptions intermixed on their website, so I hoped there would be settings for that in the app. Unless I'm missing something, US physicians will have to get used to calling acetaminophen "paracetamol" and having drugs in the App that aren't used in the United States. I just think the app should adjust to us, not the other way around. Let us pick US standards in some kind of preferences settings and I'd give it more stars.

Fantastic!

This little application takes the stress out of pediatric resuscitation. You can enter age or weight. It then take you to a modular interface with the majority of life threatening conditions. Select a module and you are given the drugs and doses to treat that condition. All this in five touches. Fantastic! I'm sure that this will reduce pediatric prescribing errors and may prompt you to treatments not previously considered. I particularly like the pain module. Maybe the makers could add a distraction video to the no pain icon.
