Shown in a study to significantly increase the speed, accuracy and confidence of prescribing in a paediatric emergency (Flannigan and McAloon, Resuscitation 2011). This application has been developed by an experienced team of clinicians to provide the user with a wealth of information with a few simple clicks.
The easy to use interphase means the user can 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’ using your preference of the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) formulae or the 50th centile for age and sex from World Health Organisation (WHO) growth charts.
