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.
This app is very helpful especially with medication dosages. Is there an adult version of this?
Only thing I really suggest the developers look at are the new NRP guidelines and recommendations for neonatal dosing. Hope that helps!!!
I got this app when it was still free! This app is the only app I have ever used. I worked at a extremely busy level 1 trauma hospital!! After just a couple of codes staff was wondering what I was using on my phone. Pretty much every Attending and resident before I left had this loaded on their phone! As a nurse I wouldn’t want to run a code without someone using this for a reference or a double check. It also comes in handy for the little things like antipyretics, and even vital signs! I’m retired now and still use it as a quick reference for those friends with little ones.
This is my go to pediatric application and I recommend it regularly. It gives you quick and easy access to dosages tailored to your patient without having to do math in the middle of an emergency. One click and the answer is at your fingertips. A little pricey but totally worth it!
Just downloaded this app only to find there’s no options/recommendations for PO antibiotics?? I know this app is designed with ER physicians in mind, but certainly there are times when even they send patients home on PO antibiotics. I think that would really make this app much more complete and helpful for those of us in family medicine, urgent care, etc. Otherwise great app and very user friendly.
This is a must have app for any provider (physician, nurse, tech) who works in a pediatric setting. It’s very user friendly, quick to access and manipulate to find what you need, and accurate to patient care. If you’re looking for an app that will help guide your care and answer quick questions regarding dosages or weight/age-based management, this is the app for you. 100% worth the purchase & download!
I have tried out every app out there for peds EM dosing and Pedi STAT is truly the best. So easy to navigate, use, and really my lifeline during peds codes/critical cases. I recommend it to all our EM and Peds residents at my institution to use.
I always get stuck on Pediatric dosing when I’m working through pediatric Simulation cases. I used this app on my friend’s phone and was pleasantly surprised at how quick, simple, and easy it is to use. I can confidently say that this app was the easiest to use when compared to competitors that I’ve also tried in other pediatric cases. I’m very excited to now have this app and continue using it as I continue growing in my career!
Missing a search function. If I know what medicine I need / want but just need a dose, I want to be able to search for the medicine instead of clicking through categories I think it might be in. Please give me a search functionality!!
An essential app for pediatric calculations. When I’m on my way to a Ped patient this is my go-to quick reference. Great tool for cognitive off-loading.
