    Get a Palm device and then get infusicalc from www.aetherpalm.com. It is the best and you can preset it to your hospitals standard concentrations. Plug in the dose needed, weight (if weight based drug) and boom you have the answer. Takes all of 5-10 seconds!

    This link just gives me a server report w/ error #.
    Is it just my computer, or is the link just bad? Sounds great, tho.!

    Hi,
    I work in an outpatient surgery facility (I am spoiled with no weekends, holidays, or late nights) and wanted to share something with y'all. It is an emergency drug dosage calculator......one that you can carry in your pocket. You pick the drug to administer, enter the parameters, pt. information, and it does all the calculating for you!! No pens/paper/calculators!! We are buying one to keep on our crash cart at our facility. It was designed by an RN for nurses who work in the ER and Critical care areas, but it also is a wonderful idea for facilities like mine. If any of you are interested, it will be on the market within a few weeks and I can get you the information (it is also going to be affordable), just get your email address to me. No, I am not a salesman for the company, just a nurse who wants to get the word out about this wonderful new device.
    Keep up the great posts!

    Why not just post it up here for all to see?

    Has anyone heard of an ACLS class?

    Or PDA?

    re: dosage calcs, I know this is only partially relevant to your thread, and it also makes me look a bit dweeb...
    but I actually enjoyed the dosage calc parts of our classes in nursing school, hardly ever got a ? wrong, like to work out my own on paper in ICU for drips before I start anything, help new nurses or students learn how to work them, and have even started going back to counting drip rates of everything, even though we use pumps for basically everything.
    My grandfather passed on as a result of a faulty calc/med error, so subconsciously maybe this has something to do with this, but whatever, I think it's actually quite interesting and cool to be in the know.
    But I digress... I would be interested in a calc, if it's simple and small. thanks-

    -nearly 2 years in the ICU and proud!
