SafeDose® is an electronic medication reference tool. It contains acute medications provided for pre-hospital and hospital workers by SafeDose as a public service.
SafeDose provides mixing instructions, dosing, and drug administration information on a single, actionable page. Choose the patient’s weight and clinical need, and instantly see the dose in mg, volume in mL, dilution, delivery information, and dangers.
The content is tailored to remove irrelevant information and to eliminate the need for math or memorization by the caregiver. This improves medication safety, reduces the cost of care, and improves clinical outcomes.
iMedicalApps’ review describes SafeDose as "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 university research study published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that after less than 10 minutes of training, the use of the SafeDose 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 hospital version of SafeDose, 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 SafeDose medical content is medically reviewed for accuracy.
