Paediatric Emergencies

Paediatric Emergencies


Paediatric Emergencies ‘Paediatric Emergencies’ provides the healthcare professional with the time critical information they need when treating an acutely unwell child.The application combines an emergency drugs calculator with algorithms from internationally recognised organisations.


Paediatric Emergencies’ includes algorithms from the following organisations: Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG), British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED), British Thoracic Society (BTS), College of Emergency Medicine (CEM), Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPSNI), Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF), National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), Resuscitation Council (UK), Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children (RBHSC), Paediatric Accident and Emergency Research Group, Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines (SIGN) and Toward Optimized Practice (TOP).The easy to use interface and navigation features make it easy for the user to 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.
  • Detailed administration instructions on how to reconstitute, prepare and administer the specified dose of the medication.
  • The reference source for the drug doses is clearly stated and where possible a web link to the source is provided.
This application is a must for any Paediatrician, Anaesthetist, Emergency Department Physician or any healthcare professional who as some stage may find themselves looking after an acutely unwell child.
