Pedi-STAT is a rapid reference for RNs, paramedics, physicians and other healthcare professionals caring for pediatric patients in the emergency or critical care environment.


Among "The Best Drug Reference Apps for Emergency Physicians" - Emergency Physicians Monthly

5 STARS - "Simple interface provides rapid access to critical data needed when managing a critically ill pediatric patient"

5 Stars - "Very useful for treating kids in high pressure situations with precision."


Pedi-STAT features include:

- Rapid results for airway interventions including endotracheal tube sizes, depth, intubation medication dosages, ventilator settings, and sedation

- Cardiac resuscitation data including weight specific dosages for resuscitation medications, cardioversion, and defibrillation

- Access to age and weight specific pediatric equipment including foley catheters, airway management, chest and NG tubes, peripheral and central line sizes, and more

- Seizure medication dosages

- Management of hypoglycemia including age specific dextrose concentrations

- Reference of age specific normal vital signs

- Procedural sedation dosages including single dose meds and infusions, as well as reversal agents

- Calculated pain management medications

- Medical management of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis

Users can quickly access critical information accurately, without having to rely on memory or cumbersome textbooks.

With just a few taps, users have access to all the necessary data to care for a pediatric patient in the emergent setting, including weight-based and age specific medication dosages and equipment sizes.

Since many of the patients present with minimal known information, all the results can be calculated rapidly with only a known age, date-of-birth, weight, length, or height. Simply enter the known variable and the data is instantly calculated.

Developed by an Emergency Physician, this app minimizes the risk of medical errors allowing the provider to spend more time caring for the patient, and less time looking up and calculating doses.

It is a critical companion for any physician, nurse, paramedic, or medical trainee involved in the care of critically ill pediatric patients.

What’s New

Version 5.0.0

Welcome to the brand new version of Pedi STAT! We have completely rebuilt the app, keeping the features that have made it so successful, but have made major improvements to the functionality and overall appearance.

We’ve added a search function to rapidly access the content you need, as well as a large number of additional medications.

The burn section is much improved, allowing the user to accurately estimate the total body surface involved, followed by correct fluid resuscitation volumes and rates.

Cardiac resuscitation medications and algorithms have been updated with an improved look and functionality.

The Seizure section has been rebuilt and includes medical management as well as an evidence-based algorithm on managing status epilepticus.

Our pharmacy team has completely reviewed the medical content and we’ve included all the recommended dosing and volume changes.

We also have developed a formal collaboration with the EMSC Innovation and Improvement Center ( to assist providers in getting access to all the most current evidence-based data in pediatric emergency care and become more informed on pediatric readiness.

We have much more in store for further enhancements that are currently in development. We are always receptive to suggestions for additions or other improvements - please contact us at

PO Antibiotics

Just downloaded this app only to find there’s no options/recommendations for PO antibiotics?? I know this app is designed with ER physicians in mind, but certainly there are times when even they send patients home on PO antibiotics. I think that would really make this app much more complete and helpful for those of us in family medicine, urgent care, etc. Otherwise great app and very user friendly.

Developer Response ,

Thank you this feedback. This is actually something we are currently working on. There are a few challenges to this considering the range of recommended doses for different conditions, as well as variable concentrations, suspension vs. tablets, etc. Regardless, we’re working on a viable solution and hope to have it implemented soon.

Thanks again and please let us know any other suggestions for additions or improvements.

Best paeds quick reference

I’m an EM doc, have tried all the various paeds quick reference apps, for my purposes, i find this one easiest to use and most comprehensive for most “real world” applications. Many others are organized by cards for the patient weight with all i fo in one place. This is more what i was looking for, a weight-based reference that is organised by the symptom i am treating, helpful for everyday things like antipyretics and antiemetics, which i (fortunately) use more frequently in my practice than resuscitation medications in paeds (although these are also available and easy to reference in the app as well)

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review of Pedi STAT. We are constantly working to make this the most trusted, reliable resource for pediatric emergency medicine; whether you are a physician, nurse, PA, or prehospital provider. Please let us know if you have further suggestions for improvements - we have a number of enhancements currently in development for the app that will make it even more worthwhile and a valuable resource in minimizing medical errors.


Excellent Peds Resource

This is a must have app for any provider (physician, nurse, tech) who works in a pediatric setting. It’s very user friendly, quick to access and manipulate to find what you need, and accurate to patient care. If you’re looking for an app that will help guide your care and answer quick questions regarding dosages or weight/age-based management, this is the app for you. 100% worth the purchase & download!
