First-hand approach. A novel method to rapidly calculate pediatric drug dosages.

Author information

Davie (Fla.) Fire-Rescue, USA.


ROSC should ideally be achieved prior to departure from the scene. Airway maintenance and post-resuscitation care become top priorities en route to the closest appropriate facility. The entire sequence should appear effortless and smooth, creating the perception of impeccable excellence. Giving providers a method of calculation prior to arrival on the scene of a pediatric resuscitation helps them focus on the essential aspects of the call. With improved confidence, these essentials are accomplished rapidly on scene without hesitation or trepidation, and, most importantly, without the need for calculation of drug dosages.
