The new DrugDoses is here, with a new design and an updated database!

For more than 30 years, Frank Shann’s little booklet has helped physicians all around the world prescribe drugs to children. DrugDoses now contains more than 2150 entries. It lists every drug commonly prescribed for systemic use in both adults and children.

The iOS version of the booklet gives you an enormous amount of information, which will be updated yearly! You will therefore always have the latest drugs, which will only be available in the paper version in another year or two.

The iOS version has also lots of other features: more than 150 current laboratory values and a useful cardiology database.

DrugDoses also integrates PedCalc. It contains the most common pediatric scores and formulas:
- ASA score
- Alveolo-arterial gradient
- Anion gap
- Apgar score
- Blunt abdominal trauma score
- Body mass index
- Body surface area
- Corrected Ca
- Creatinine clearance - measured
- Creatinine clearance - estimated
- Endotracheal tube sizes
- FeNa
- Glasgow Coma Score
- Glasgow Outcome Scale
- Maintenance fluids

- NACA score
- Neonatal central lines
- Oxygen index
- PaO2/FiO2 ratio
- Parkland formula
- Pediatric trauma score

Getting expensive every version for what !! Money only

Great App there is no doubt. It started with 0.99 $ to 1.99 to 4.99 to 9.99 to 14.99 to this price!!! Com'mon stop this

Developer Response ,

We are sorry you feel that the price is unfair. The app's price was based on the price of the booklet and is still lower than most drug textbooks.

Can’t restore my purchase !!

I bought the lifetime license before , and now the app keeps telling me that my license will expire in less than a month!!
Otherwise this is a good app.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. We're happy you enjoy the app, but we're really sorry for the issue with the license. As we have now removed the need for a lifetime license, you should be able to enjoy your app.
Thanks again!

Frank shann's drug dosing

This is the reference that is used widely in australia. Gives both doses for pediatrics and adults, plus US drug names (acetaminophen), but it mainly deals with pediatric dosing, a must have for clinicians dealing with pediatric population. I was just blown away with so much useful information for such little cost. Highly recommended for pharmacists, pediatricians, general medicines.
