eBroselow SafeDose is a medication reference tool that provides mixing instructions, doses and drug administration information. After the caregiver chooses the patient’s weight and clinical need, the content is tailored to remove irrelevant information. The exact dose is provided visually in mg and mL – eliminating the need for math or calculators by the caregiver. This improves medication safety, reduces the cost of care, and improves clinical outcomes.
iMedicalApps said SafeDose is "useful and well designed... Undoubtedly, the potential for medication errors would be reduced if practitioners were to rely on the information provided by this app".
A research study published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that after less than 10 minutes of training, the use of eBroselow’s system increased the accuracy of medication doses prepared during simulated pediatric emergencies by nearly 25 percent, and completely eliminated clinically significant errors. The research also showed that use of the system, as compared to traditional processes, reduced the time required to prepare medication during an emergency
Used by hundreds of hospitals and many thousands of practitioners, all eBroselow SafeDose medical content is peer-reviewed for accuracy.

Add a drug amount in mg, mcg, grams or units to a volume of fluid, select the dose ordered, and voila! The ml/hour necessary to deliver that dose is displayed. All parameters MUST be verified prior to infusion! However, if you accidentally enter an incorrect parameter, you may back-screen to correct it without having to re-enter each piece of data.
This program will NOT save preferences.
Also, drug manufacturers and distributors sometimes change their concentrations, therefore this program will NOT let you simply enter "Amiodarone" and perform all the calculations for you.
This is BetterWare (for lack of a better term) - if you think of any way to make it better, please share it with me so I can share it back with everyone.
This program is intended to provide a quick reference to the drugs and dosages required to perform a Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI). It does NOT take the place of formal classes which teach this skill - you won't learn RSI from scratch by using this app.
This app is designed to be stepped through rapidly - patient class (Adult, Pediatric, or Geriatric); patient weight in pounds or kgs, or Broselow tape if pediatric; finally, patient health considerations - does this patient have an intracranial bleed? Is this patient hypotensive?
Should hyperkalemia be suspected? - finally, here are your drugs and dosages.
Any preassessment should be performed prior to attempting an intubation (LEMONS, BONES, Mallampati scoring, etc.)
Tap Menu -> Help for further information, and remember always to stick to your protocols.
This is Betterware; if you can think of any way to make it better, please drop me a suggestion at DTsEMT@gmail.com, and Thanks!
Tap the upper portion of the screen each time a drop falls into the chamber. Don't need many - after three or five drops, tap the drip set (10, 15, 20, or 60gtts/ml) and your drip rate is displayed.
This also works for heartbeats and is useful for neonate heart rates, or to count breathing.
Absolutely free, and ad-free.
This app is for the budding EMT-B. It places you in the position of the Rampart docs. Your EMT-B is calling from the scene and asking for instruction.
Your EMT can be ordered to:
Confirm scene safety;
Assess the patient (area-by-area);
Take vital signs (BP, pulse, etc.);
Check blood sugar;
insert OPAs or NPAs as needed;
Use an AED;
Ventilate with BVM;
Immobilize extremities (splint) or patient (backboard);
Assist the patient with Nitro, Epi-pen, or MDI;
Administer oral glucose;
Administer activated charcoal;
Transport the patient
This app works best with a natural text-to-speech voice such as IVONA or SVOX. It can be run through speakerphone or in a privacy mode. It includes an in-app scenario editor to modify existing scenarios or add new scenarios. At the end of the scenario an optional Debrief Mode provides feedback on how well you handled the scene and patient. Full help available in the menu.

Here's a simple little program that allows you to specify oxygen cylinder size, tank pressure, and flow rate to calculate how long the tank will last. There's a "set alarm" button which allows you to exit the application and do other things, then receive a reminder.
Quick Pick option for nasal cannula, face mask, and non-rebreather, or override with your own LPM specification. Also allows you to enter vent settings including tidal volume and FiO2%.
