This app allows users to dose pediatric emergency medicines and equipment to patient weight or age, organized by clinical situation or alphabetical list. It is ideal for paramedics, emergency physicians, urgent care physicians, pediatric residents, transport team members, and other health care professionals who care for critically-ill children.

This app was designed by a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, transport team members, and pharmacists affiliated with Children's National Health System.

The updated version contains med-dosing within PALS algorithms, improved style, error corrections, a new improved menu screen, and clinical protocol section. The original release won the Blue Aster award and was an adaptation of the popular "blue card" that was disseminated in the DC metropolitan area for years before mobile health.

This app literally saves lives

So happy to see the blue card up and running again!! I’ve used it several times on calls. I can take whatever info I have prior to arrival and write valuable information on my gloves for rapid review on scene. In my opinion it’s better than a braslow. This app literally saves lives.

Great Reference App

This app is incredible! Works well on the fly. Useful for when you don’t have a broslow tape handy! There’s also more information than what’s on the broslow! Updated for iOS11!
