Pediatric Anesthesia

Pediatric Anesthesia


The Pediatric Anesthesia Calculator is an application for anesthesiologists, CRNAs and emergency service personnel who are facing pediatric patients in the OR, emergency room or on the street.

With this tool you will know all important physiological values for the particular age and weight of your patient as well as mask and tube sizes. All relevant drugs for intravenous anesthesia available in the United States are included with dosing information for your special patient.

When you tap on the blue drug name, a window opens with vial contents, neccessary solutions, resulting concentrations, weight and age - based dosing information and finally the dose in [mg] und [ml] for the patient data you entered on the start screen.
All the information you need within 10 seconds at the point of care.
Ideally suited to crosscheck your own calculations. Valuable in the emergency situation, in routine duty as well as at the unexpected surgery at 3 a.m. on call.

All information is based on current literature and guidelines. Please see the sources at the bottom of the application website.

Additionally I included the reviewed and validated POVOC - Score with the guidelines for the prevention of postoperative vomiting in children by the german Council on Pediatric Anesthesia of the German Society for Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine and the guidelines on the Prevention of Postoperative Vomiting in Children by the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain . There is no equivalent guideline for the United States.

As nobody can solely rely on the invisible calculations of a software, all the data the Pediatric Anesthesia Calculator uses is openly display. On http://8apps.org you will find every solution, the number of decimal places every value is rounded to and all the formulas resulting in the dosage guidelines, so that you can make the informed decision to benefit from this app.
