Paediatric Emergency Tools, developed in 2011 to rave reviews , and already used by thousands of clinicians, calculates: appropriate dosages of commonly used drugs; details of frequently used infusions or boluses; tube sizes; physiological parameters; and more. Commended for being a “smart, simple iPhone app that is a joy to use”, the new version retains the best loved features of the drug and physiological calculators but with a fresh look, expanded drugs library and new guidelines section used by our team to manage children who are critically ill.

The team behind this App are South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS) and the Paediatric Intensive Care of the Evelina London Children's Hospital who have transferred >10,000 critically ill children and look after >1,200 children every year. UBQO, App developers, have distilled this clinical excellence and put it in the palm of your hand.

Paediatric Emergency Tools brings together expert knowledge and experience in a simple to use, offline and convenient application to facilitate dealing with clinical emergencies in children. Calculations are now available without the need for a computer or access to the internet.
After the entry of patient age or weight, results are instantly presented in a logical and clear manner. Guidelines take the user through resuscitation, investigation and ventilation of the critically ill child.

Paeds Tools is useful for nurses, doctors, ambulance crew and everyone who needs key paediatric drug data and guidelines in their pocket.

Gaffer ,

Great with a few caveats!

A few anaesthetic doses are not correct (so beware) and some useful infusions are missing.
Also, the app is designed for the iPhone 4 (we're now on the 6s four years on and this looks fairly outdated [even worse on the plus]).
However, apart from that it's a great app to have on hand, especially when attending emergencies in A&E and you need to get quick figures.

General paed nurse

Great app, lovely to have something British to use rather than just American based. Very useful when nursing a sick child or waiting for retrieval team. Great to have in a transfer too. Gets a lot of use from me! Have recommended it to my friends too! thank you!

PICU nurse

Easy to use and just what is needed for an emergency or when on retrieval. Thank you
