Description

SafeDose® is an electronic medication reference tool. It contains acute medications provided for pre-hospital and hospital workers by SafeDose 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, volume in mL, dilution, delivery information, and dangers.

The content is tailored to remove irrelevant information and to eliminate the need for math or memorization by the caregiver. This improves medication safety, reduces the cost of care, and improves clinical outcomes.

iMedicalApps’ review describes SafeDose as "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 the SafeDose 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 SafeDose, 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 SafeDose medical content is medically reviewed for accuracy.

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.

latest update disappointing

I’ve used this app for years. Absolutely loved it and used it daily. It was the best pediatric app for medication dosing I’ve ever seen. For some reason the developer thought an update was needed to a perfectly working and excellent app. I’ve now used this updated version for a few shifts on my job and find it to be cumbersome and now slow. It used to be instant results, but now there’s a delay.
There are more features that I personally don’t need and never will use. I doubt the average practitioner would ever use them either no matter what area of peds they work in. The average clinician just needs the dose for the drug. The rest is extraneous material that no one has the time get in to with the fast pace environments that we all work in.
All Another huge disappointment was the new subscription fees that are very costly, a huge increase to what it was prior. I used to personally promote this app to all the new practitioners I mentor, but now I do so with reservations because of the cost. Unfortunately, I will be ending my subscription at the end of next month.

Yanking an emergency app is … dangerous

Most of my work is in the outpatient clinic and the newborn nursery, but I do occasionally get called to pediatric emergencies.

I bought this app years ago and was very happy to have it on my phone and accessible. I did, in fact, use it several times in the emergency room.

I received no notice whatsoever that my access to this app would no longer be valid. I’m fortunate to have discovered this in a non-emergency setting, but seriously – this was an extraordinarily dangerous thing to do.
