EMERGENCY MEDICATION DOSAGE CALCULATOR

  1. 1
    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!

    I use palm PC with a free softwear from RNpalm.com called Medcaculator, which provide you with all caculations you need. another softwear calculate the doses of drugs used in ICU or CCU.

    Thanks...

    Hey, Marie! Hope this finds you happy and healthy! Some time ago, you had some info on a drug calculator for potent drips. It was put out by PRN Technologies. I can't get the phone number from my favorite sites and it doesn't seem to be available on the webl. Could you please send me the telephone #? If not, maybe you could send me their address and I can look them up. I will be taking the ACLS course this upcoming week and I think this would come in handy. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks, Annette
