For more than 25 years, Frank Shanns little booklet has helped physicians all around the world prescribe drugs to children. DrugDoses now contains more than 2050 entries. It lists every drug commonly prescribed for systemic use in both adults and children.
Five years ago, we have released a PDA version of Frank Shann's booklet, and we are happy to be able to offer your the new iPhone version!
The iPhone version of the booklet gives you an enormous amount of information, which will be updated every 6 months! You will therefore always have the latest drugs, which will only be available in the paper version in a year or two! Your license entitles you to a two-year period of updates.
The iPhone version has also lots of other features: more than 150 current laboratory values, a useful cardiology database and a calculator that will help you give the correct resuscitation doses when you are coding a child.
DrugDoses now also integrates PedCalc. It contains the most common pediatric scores and formulas:
- Alveolo-arterial gradient
- Anion gap
- Apgar score
- Blunt abdominal trauma score
- Body mass index
- Body surface area
- Creatinine clearance - measured
- Creatinine clearance - estimated
- Endotracheal tube sizes
- Glasgow Coma Score
- Neonatal central lines
- Oxygen index
- Pediatric trauma score
- Predicted spirometry values
- Tubular phosphate reabsorption
By the way, did you know that by becoming a fan of DrugDoses on Facebook (http://facebook.drugdoses.net), you can directly request new features and get information on the updates and changes in the database?
