SafeDose is a FREE medication reference tool. It contains a limited number of acute medications provided for EMS / pre-hospital workers by eBroselow as a public service.
SafeDose provides mixing instructions, dosing and drug administration information on a single, actionable page. Choose the patient’s weight and clinical need, and instantly see the Dose in mg, Dose in mL, Dilution, Delivery information and Dangers, plus Y-site compatibilities..
The content is tailored to remove irrelevant information, and eliminate the need for math or memorization 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".
A university research study published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that after less than 10 minutes of training, the use of eBroselow’s system increased the accuracy of medication doses prepared during simulated pediatric emergencies by nearly 25 percent, and completely eliminated clinically significant errors.
The research also showed that use of the hospital version of eBroselow, as compared to traditional processes, reduced the time required to prepare medication during an emergency.
Used by hundreds of hospitals and many thousands of practitioners, all eBroselow SafeDose medical content is medically reviewed for accuracy.

Ratings and Reviews
Note from the developer
Hello, this is the developer writing. Responding to a previous reviewer (elguapo1218), sorry but we can find no record of any emails or other correspondence from you. We are proud to be extremely responsive - returning emails within 24 hours even over the weekend. Insulin dosing for DKA does indeed exist for children in the app. It does not exist for adults because there are too many variables involved for adults to safely indicate a single "standard dose". We are considering removing the category altogether for adults. But we stand by our content which has been peer reviewed by many doctors, nurses and pharmacists and in use by hundreds of hospitals and thousands of medical professionals over the past three years.
Great idea, buggy app doesn’t work right now
Great idea but effectively useless because I can’t get any of the buttons to work when using it on my iPhone X. Not very helpful if I can’t access anything I am paying for. Canceling my subscription.
I really wanted to like this App. It has some features that seem very useful. Unfortunately, when I was browsing through the categories, I looked up DKA. The only information under that category was on a giving a fluid Bolus. Nothing about insulin. I found info about insulin by looking up insulin in the alphabetical drug list.
This makes me feel like I can't trust this App. I look up DKA, and I know that important information is missing. If I look up something more obscure, I might not realize that something is missing.
I have tried to contact the developer both through the App and via their website prior to posting a negative review and there was no response to either attempt. At this time I feel that I can't trust the completeness of this App, and the developer does not seem to be responsive to concerns. That's pretty much the kiss of death for a medical App as far as I'm concerned. I really hope they fix things and change my opinion!
