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

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.
Pros and cons of Pedi STAT app for iPhone and iPad
Pedi STAT app good for
I just found this amazing APP. I am doctor who works closly with EMTs and is regurlarly on call. This app is extremely intuitive. I will be recommending this to my colleagues.
Tons of useful information, very easy to use. Great app for the price!
As an Advanced Life Support Paramedic this app has been great! Recently two 3 mo Arrests, multiple seizures and a couple traumas. Dial it in put it beside the child and my partner and I can dial up what we need to give and confirm our calculations. Significantly reduced stressful calls. Hope they keep improving an already excellent app!! And they just did!
Great for quick dosing when a resus arrives with only the age known. It could include an antibiotic or "custom" drug section where you could add other drugs to make it a little more usable outside crisis situations.
As a critical care flight paramedic I think that this program is a fantastic reference tool. Good application to the advanced, basic care, and land paramedic.
Phenomenal app. Incredibly user friendly and intuitive. The interface should be the gold standard for emergency medical reference apps!
Some bad moments
I was recommended this app by a coworker. After briefly browsing through the app I encountered several medication spelling errors. I have to admit I find it hard to rely on an app that cant even spell med names correctly. Wish it were more trustworthy!
content is good...but it just seems to take too long to find what i need. too many steps...I stopped using it once I downloaded a different pedi app that had the info I needed in a better format.
I find it very frustrating that a medical program written by a doctor has the opportunity to identify yourself as a "physician", "nurse" or even a "dietician" but do not have the option of "nurse practitioner" or "physician assistant". Really?!?!
Pedi STAT, you need another doctor.
I usually dont write reviews but I hope the developers see this and fix the app. Pedi star was great; all the info at your fingertips, drugs and equipment. After the update it is now written for medical students, interns, or nurses who arent used to dealing with sick patients. The meds are listed within algorithms and in giant categories. Its too unwieldly to use in an emergency or on the way to one. It has far too much basic information in the way of the real information. This basic information is not the kind needed when seeing a sick kids. It gets in the way and if thats the info you need, you dont need
