eBroselow SafeDose is a medication reference tool that provides mixing instructions, doses and drug administration information. After the caregiver chooses the patient’s weight and clinical need, the content is tailored to remove irrelevant information. The exact dose is provided visually in mg and mL – eliminating the need for math or calculators by the caregiver. This improves medication safety, reduces the cost of care, and improves clinical outcomes.
iMedicalApps said SafeDose is "useful and well designed... Undoubtedly, the potential for medication errors would be reduced if practitioners were to rely on the information provided by this app".

Used by hundreds of hospitals and many thousands of practitioners, all eBroselow SafeDose medical content is peer-reviewed for accuracy.
