Welcome to the second edition of APPtitude.

Most of you are probably already familiar with PediStat, another app by QxMD (there is no sponsorship, I promise). This app is the Broselow tape for the 21st century. It is extremely intuitive, and highly useful at the bedside for physicians you work frequently with children, and more importantly for us, those who see them rarely.

The first screen allows you to enter either the patient’s age, weight, Broselow colour or even length.


Then you’re given a short list of categories that make it easy to find the exact drug dosing that you want for your patient. No more calculating and re-calculating doses on the back of a glove!


This is one of the few apps I paid money for. It is currently $3.49 available for iPhone and Android.
