There’s a new easy to use guide when it comes to assisting caregivers of children in providing the exact amount of emergency drugs to these young delicate patients. We’ve taken it to the next step as compared to the others you may have seen. Every drug amount has been calculated out to the ml. So, in a crisis situation of a child, YOU DO NO MATH! It’s already been done for you! You simply find the ordered drug, alphabetically listed on the chart for that kilogram, and draw up the stated amount into your syringe. It’s that easy!
It’s the Huston Haines Pediatric Resuscitation Guide. It gives you equipment sizes, Vital Signs, Defibrillation and Cardioversion amounts, all appropriate for whatever weight the child is.
It comes in an easy to read 11 ½” X 8” laminated booklet that will fit easily into your Crash Cart. It also comes in a 5” X 7” version that fits in a lab coat or Paramedic Cargo Pants pocket. The guide also includes a weight / length based tape containing the 5th, 50th and 95th percentile weight’s for a more accurate estimate of the child’s weight.
It’s reasonably priced at $29.95 US plus shipping and handling. It’s being used extensively in the Green Bay, WI area, and is spreading rapidly. All drugs listed are in accordance with the American Heart Association’s 2010 PALS Guidelines.
