From Apple a valuable app dedicated to pediatric emergencies
It is called Pediatric Support and is downloadable from the Apple Store. This application is aimed at paramedics. By keying in the age and weight of the child needing treatment, it immediately and automatically shows calculations that can facilitate the handling of a
patient in an emergency situation.
The information supplied includes the type of intervention to apply, the materials to use,
medication to administer, how they interact with each other and a complete series of scientific medical instructions that can literally guide the operator in the delicate initial phases of treatment. The audio guide can be paused and reset according to necessity. The application, which follows guidelines from medical treatises, has been created in collaboration with the Pediatric European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and the American Heart Association (AHA).
