PICU Calculator

PICU Calculator


PICU Calculator 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. In a matter of seconds the 'PICU Calculator' provides normal values and doses.


The easy to use interphase and organisation into the above categories 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 calculator will provide an ‘estimated weight’ which has been calculated from the 50th centile for age and sex from World Health Organisation(WHO) growth charts.This increases the accuracy of the results provided by the calculator compared to using the standard formula(age in years + 4) x 2 to calculate estimated weight.
  • The calculator uses intelligent formulae which adjust the calculated doses of the drugs to the age of the child and restricts the maximum dose in each category to the normal adult dose.
  • Addition information is provided without cluttering up the main display through the use of pop up ‘info boxes’ which contain addition advice such as contraindications or information about monitoring and reference ranges of drug levels.
This application has been extensively tested and has been shown to significantly increase both the speed accuracy of doctors prescribing. A must for any Paediatrician, Anaesthetist, Emergency Department Physician, Paediatric Intensivist or any healthcare professional who as some stage may find themselves looking after an acutely unwell child.
