The easy to use interphase means the user can quickly find the information they need and make this application a real joy to use. Important design features include:

• The flexibility of preparing medications using either a ‘Fixed Volume’ or ‘Fixed Concentration’ method.
• ‘Fixed Volume’ means the concentration you make up each time will vary depending on the patient’s weight, however you always administer the same volume.
• ‘Fixed Concentration’ means the drugs are prepared in the same standard concentrations each time, however the volume administered each time will vary depending on the patient’s weight.
This application is a must for any healthcare professional who as some stage may find themselves looking after an acutely unwell patient.
