This application directly accesses our Clinical Standard Work (CSW) Pathways. At Seattle Children’s, clinical standard work pathways are a documented standard approach that guides practitioners when providing care to specific patient populations. These clinical pathways improve the quality of care through standardization of treatment based on evidence in the published medical literature and/or expert opinion. Pathways are presented in an easy-to-read
algorithm format. Deeper levels of information are accessed through the use of hyperlinks.
When developing these pathways, committees of experts from different disciplines review the evidence to reach a consensus about treatments that result in the best outcomes for patients. The committees draw on Children’s organization-wide improvement approach – called
Continuous Performance Improvement (CPI) – to implement pathways and support change
Each pathway features:
1. Step by step decision algorithms from admit to discharge
2. Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria: Defines whether a patient is appropriate for a given pathway
3. Ability to Test Knowledge: Self assessment earns Category II CME Credit
4. Explanation of Evidence Rankings: Links to complete bibliography and explanation of how evidence was ranked
5. Summary of Version Changes: Chronologic summary of version changes
6. Highlighted clinically important warnings / pitfalls of care
7. Access to rationale and expanded information via hyperlinks
8. Discharge Criteria

Pediatric Radiology is the official journal of the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR), the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR), the Asian and Oceanic Society for Pediatric Radiology, and the Latin American Society of Pediatric Radiology. All are non-profit organizations dedicated to fostering excellence in pediatric health care through imaging and image-guided care.
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
- Medical management of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis
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.
palmPEDi is the only pediatric resuscitation reference you need. Designed for physicians, nurses, anesthesia providers, EMS providers, PAs, and others caring for children in an emergency or intensive care setting, all the information you need is at your fingertips on a single screen. With a single tap.
