In a medical emergency, time is of the essence. Timely medical and procedural interventions are often needed to keep patients alive and healthy. Pediatric emergencies in particular require accurate and timely drug dosing to prevent under- or over-dosing and subsequent bad outcomes.

Many pediatric emergency/critical care drug dosing apps have entered the market for the casual emergency room doctor or nurse caring for the occasional child as well as the experienced pediatric provider in an intensive care unit or operating room setting. However, not all apps are created equal.

Pedi STAT is a solid drug dosing app that presents material in a clear, easy-to-understand color coded format to eliminate medication uncertainties in potentially stressful critical pediatric environments. This app was created by an emergency physician, Dr. James Kempema, and developed in partnership with QxMD Software.

In this app, as in most other dose calculator apps, drug dosages are calculated based on weight or an estimation of weight based on age or length if the child’s weight is unknown. Upon entering the app, you are prompted to enter one of these measurements (weight or length may be in metric or imperial units).
