Pediatric patients decompensate quickly. When a child needs an emergent airway, you simply don’t have time to solve arithmetic problems in your head. That’s where Pediatric Airway for your iPhone comes in – eliminating the guesswork and putting accurate dosing calculations at your fingertips. Correct dosages for common pretreatments, induction and paralytic agents are calculated instantly by simply dragging your finger up and down anywhere on the screen to set a patient’s weight. Drag left and right to set the age of the patient, and the suggested blade, endotracheal tube size and depth of insertion will appear. Don’t know a patient’s weight? Pediatric Airway can estimate it for you using the well-validated “Best Guess” method. The app’s clean and simple interface makes one-handed operation easy, without ever leaving the dosage screen.
