You must evaluate the patient and electrocardiogram rhythm, decide on the appropriate management, and guide two assistants through the resuscitation. The two assistants are skilled, but will only do what you tell them to do. You must be the team leader for the resuscitation efforts.
The 8 case scenarios included in this app were written by Kathleen Ventre and Howard Schwid. The first four cases cover ventricular fibrillation. The next two are bradycardia and the final two cases cover supraventricular tachycardia.

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.

Easy to Use
Simply click on the big button and then point the camera viewfinder at a Broselow QR Code. The code can be captured from a printed label or can even be captured directly from Artemis shown on your computer's screen. BroselowQR® displays the standard dose in mg and presents the mLs to administer for the selected concentration.
Unlike other medical dose calculators, BroselowQR® also provides mixing, preparation and administration instructions. It also shows adverse affects and other information. It includes pediatric as well as adult doses.
Doses are chosen by drug and indication. Visual cues and tabbed selection rather than typing help ensure correct selection of weight or length. These and other built-in features prevent error.
BroselowQR® can log the time and dose for each medication you administer. It also allows you to timestamp information not related to medication administration. This includes taking pictures and adding notes. You can thereby produce a PDF report in realtime with no typing required that can be emailed, printed or attached as a document into your external EMR. This report can serve as a log or even as a medication order.
All BroselowQR® medical content is peer-reviewed by doctors and pharmacists for accuracy. The Artemis Initiative is a joint effort of eBroselow and the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group to develop an international standard for pediatric dosage.
The Artemis emergency pediatric care software provides healthcare practitioners with critical, size-specific therapeutic information in seconds so that they can deliver prompt, competent and confident emergency care. Artemis is a web-based enterprise-level application suitable for hospitals, urgent care and EMS. For further information, visit eBroselow.com.

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 pre-assessment should be performed prior to attempting an intubation (LEMONS, BONES, Mallampati scoring, etc.)

The American Red Cross has teamed up with Dr. Oz and Sharecare to create the ultimate emergency care application. S.O.S. provides step-by-step instructions on dealing with a variety of emergencies, including choking, broken bones, strokes, allergic reactions and more. Not sure what the problem is? We’ll help you figure that out, too.
This free app includes:
- An expansive Emergency Guide for easy access to emergency care information.
- A questionnaire to help you determine an emergency’s severity and proper treatment.
- Dozens of videos, narrated by Dr. Oz, to coach you through emergency protocols. Particularly complex techniques, such as unconscious choking and CPR also include an audio and visual counter for real-time CPR compressions.
- Quick Care factoids to help you stay ahead of the curve before an emergency strikes. These range from knowing which foods can help motion sickness to the medical use for kitty litter.
- Easy access to 9-1-1. If you’re not in the US, we’ve got you covered – the app will determine what country you’re in and dial the appropriate emergency number.
- Alerts from the Red Cross to make it easy to help out in the case of a major disaster.
Emergency care protocols were developed and reviewed by prestigious medical and educational panels from both the American Red Cross and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).
