Description

Pedi-STAT is a rapid reference for RNs, paramedics, physicians and other healthcare professionals caring for pediatric patients in the emergency or critical care environment. ************************************ Reviews ************************************ Among "The Best Drug Reference Apps for Emergency Physicians" - Emergency Physicians Monthly 5 STARS - "Simple interface provides rapid access to critical data needed when managing a critically ill pediatric patient" 5 Stars - "Very useful for treating kids in high pressure situations with precision." ***************************** Pedi-STAT features include: - Rapid results for airway interventions including endotracheal tube sizes, depth, intubation medication dosages, ventilator settings, and sedation - Cardiac resuscitation data including weight specific dosages for resuscitation medications, cardioversion, and defibrillation - Access to age and weight specific pediatric equipment including foley catheters, airway management, chest and NG tubes, peripheral and central line sizes, and more - Seizure medication dosages - Management of hypoglycemia including age specific dextrose concentrations - Reference of age specific normal vital signs - Procedural sedation dosages including single dose meds and infusions, as well as reversal agents - Calculated pain management medications - Medical management of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis Users can quickly access critical information accurately, without having to rely on memory or cumbersome textbooks. With just a few taps, users have access to all the necessary data to care for a pediatric patient in the emergent setting, including weight-based and age specific medication dosages and equipment sizes. Since many of the patients present with minimal known information, all the results can be calculated rapidly with only a known age, date-of-birth, weight, length, or height. Simply enter the known variable and the data is instantly calculated. Developed by an Emergency Physician, this app minimizes the risk of medical errors allowing the provider to spend more time caring for the patient, and less time looking up and calculating doses. It is a critical companion for any physician, nurse, paramedic, or medical trainee involved in the care of critically ill pediatric patients.

  • Good app

    Exceptional app, use it for every pediatric flight. However, besides the drug dosages in mg's listed, I wish this app listed the mL's and the standard dose concentrations for meds. It would just make that one step quicker for healthcare personnel to not have to calculate mg-ml in an emergency.
  • Double check medication doses

    Users should be aware that some of the dose recommendations for babies and young children are not accurate, and are potentially dangerous. We have contacted the developers who are working to fix this, but in the meantime be careful!
  • Outstanding Peds Resource

    As an ED RN I use this app frequently, not just for really sick kids, where it's a must have, but for simple things like regular VS for a 3 year old. No resource is perfect but this one is as close as I've found.

    As a paramedic, I primarily enjoy the vital signs. Though, counterintuitively, the 'vital signs' is alphabetically listed as 'normal viral signs'. It's useful otherwise.
  • Great app

    Great app, but it would be nice to have the dosages show max doses or go above 40kg! Someone should incorporate acls into this and it would be THE go to app.
  • Extremely helpful!

    As an emergency physician in a predominantly adult ER, this app is worth it's weight in gold. The sick kid isn't a problem for me. It's the critically ill child who presents through triage in distress and no one seemingly can find a Broslow. This scenario doesn't happen often (thankfully) but it does periodically. The app allows you to generate drug dosages via age or weight. This app is a must need for any practicing emergency physician!!
  • Great tool for ED/NICU providers

    Utilizing this app in the ED as a practicing RN after one of the docs recommended it to me. Simple layout makes any pediatric critical care reference practical while working in a fast paced environment.

    Overall, useful and fairly accurate pediatric therapy guide. BUT - beware the typo in "anaphylaxis." The max dose should be 1 mg, not 1mg/kg.
  • Best peds app

    Great for emergency physicians who need a quick reference. Great for learners, too!
