About this app

Acute Child is a health professional reference work that helps authorized health professionals to quickly and safely begin initial treatment of acutely ill or injured children.

Acute Child contains three parts:

1. Guide sheet with a quick overview of vital parameters, equipment sizes and doses of selected medicine for acute situations for a child with the selected weight
2. Treatment guidelines for 29 acute, life-threatening pediatric conditions as well as guidance in general ABCDE assessment and pain treatment and sedation of children. The instructions are adapted to the chosen weight and cover a minimum of the first 30 minutes of treatment
3. Resuscitation algorithms for stabilization of newborns as well as advanced resuscitation of children from resp. Danish Pediatric Society and Danish Council for Resuscitation

All content is available for children in the range of 3-50 kg.

Acute Child is easy and intuitive to use:

- By turning the wheel on the front of the Acute Child, age and weight are selected. When "OK" is pressed in the middle of the wheel, guide sheets corresponding to the selected weight are presented
- Treatment instructions adapted to the selected weight are presented by pressing the menu button "Acute conditions" at the top of the guide sheet
- Resuscitation algorithms are available directly from the front page by clicking on resp. baby icon and children icon.

Acute Child is not a substitute for local guidelines but can help the treatment team get started quickly and can reduce the risk of medication errors in acute situations. Use is at your own risk.

Acute Child has been developed by employees at Rigshospitalet's Department of Anesthesia, Surgery and TraumaCenter:

- Chief physician Morten Bøttger, pediatric anesthesiologist
- Chief physician Lasse Høgh Andersen, pediatric anesthesiologist and prehospital emergency physician
- Chief physician Michael Friis Tvede, anaesthesiologist and prehospital emergency physician

The professional content has been developed in collaboration with a group of experts in emergency treatment of children both pre- and in-hospital.

Acute Child 2022 has been developed on the basis of funds allocated by the Regional Council in the Capital Region of Denmark for Children's Preparation as well as financial support from Rigshospitalet's Department of Anesthesia, Surgery and TraumaCenter. Acute Child 2022 is a further development of the first version of Acute Child, which was published with support from TrygFonden in 2012.
