Very helpful and easy to use With the increasing need to check baby’s bili using TcB it would be nice to have the TcB tool and graph with this app
Very easy to use and accurate
I use it in clinic, urgent care and/or the ER every day.
Seriously.. no Ketamine, Propofol or other conscious sedation or Emergency drugs... I guess if you work in a clinic this might be helpful, but any type of Emergency setting its a waste of money
This is by far, my all-time favorite app. I'm a second yr FP resident and have been using it since med school. I use it nearly daily (or continually when on peds rotations). I recommend it to my fellow residents and to any med students I'm mentoring. It has wt based dosing for IV and PO, and tells me how many mLs (not just mg for PO) which is great or even how many total mLs needed to complete a PO course of abx. It will graph bilis and link to recommendations. Love the age calculator and %change weight calculator! It will graph growth curves and give BP percentile (who likes looking up BP normal ranges?!? It's painful.). It will calculate IV bolus volumes and maintenance rates (I use this for adults too since it has that option). I think it does a lot of other stuff and has useful resource links too, but this is the stuff I use most often. Just realized today when reading through reviews that it has all the Pals drugs listed in a separate section, and that you can search drugs by generic. Love it even more now. I was always frustrated by the brand names in the scroll list. Not sure why I never thought to search before.
I just started using this App but have a few observations so far. Pro’s: I really like how some of the common medications are separated by indication, e.g. acyclovir (varicella) vs. Acyclovir (HSV). I like the additional app features such as mid-parent height, growth chart, and basic dosage calculator. However, I could not get the growth chart to work. I got an error message regardless of the height and weight I entered. Cons: there should be a simple way to sort between only brand name and generic meds in the list view. Not all meds are listed under both their trade and generic names e.g. Keflex yes but not cephalexin, Phenergan but not promethazine. This makes it difficult to search unless you have a very thorough mental inventory of both trade and generic names. Several of the web links did not work. Recommendation to the author: I think you have a great app in development, but I am concerned about the lack of dosage maximums built into the calculator. e.g. I was running sample calculations with decadron and the suggested dose for a 56 kg child was 33.7mg. This exceeds the published max daily dose of 20mg and the typical max dose of 10mg. I would like to see each drugs calculation stop at the max dose despite the weight entered AND have the max daily dose listed right below the suggested dose for safety. I would also suggest that there be an option to quickly select different supply concentrations, route of administration, dosage ranges, and frequency of dosing, etc. While this app has a lot of potential, I think some of the problems I described could lead to dosing errors. I will continue to test the app and re-post another review soon.
Sorry you’re having troubles, Tony S. Actually, there are 17 narcotic/opioid medications in the formulary, in multiple formulations, listed by trade and generic names, including 5 PCA medications! All medications are searchable by trade or generic names from the search bar. If you look under the All Versions tab, there are 46 reviews, and none of them are paid! You’re right, there is a huge need for pediatric dosing apps, and I’ve worked very hard to make Pedi QuikCalc the best. Many, many users agree! Check out the built-in help file; there are great tips to help you get the most out of Pedi QuikCalc. BTW, it’s hard to call a $2 app overpriced!
very poor narcotic selection, brand names only, does not offer different combination strength for narcotic solution preparations. I suspect the positive reviews are mostly paid. This app does not dovetail very well with real world usage. I guess you should be suspicious when something with a huge need, (pediatric dose calculator) has only a few reviews
Now that I have figured out how to work this app (I am a new FNP and have been trying to find what I want to use regularly) I do enjoy it quite a bit. What I DON’T like is that the meds are sorted by BRAND name. When I think of a medication to give I don’t think Zithromax…I think azithromycin. I don’t think Motrin. I think ibuprofen. I tried to find a setting to sort a different way but I couldn’t find anything. I WISH WISH WISH there was a way to sort them either way! I love that I can at least favorite the meds I use the most so I don’t have to scroll SO far to find the brand name but it is still a little obnoxious sometimes.
I retract my previous review. I deleted the app & downloaded the app again & all is well.
