$14.99. This is an invaluable paediatric resource based on Frank Shann’s drug dose reference book for drug dosing. Updated twice a year, this app is frequently more current than the paper version. The main ‘in app’ purchase is the PICU Guidelines ($4.99), a searchable list of over sixty paediatric critical care guidelines. Other features of the app include laboratory reference values, paediatric cardiac definitions and a paediatric resuscitation drug dose and equipment size calculator. PedCalc is another part of the included bundle which is rather disappointing. It is showcased as a comprehensive reference list of paediatric scores and formulae but the ED relevant information is scant and poorly referenced for those with less paediatric experience. A lifetime license will cost you $5.00 after the initial 2 year licence expires. Overall, well worth the price.
