GIR calculator for iOS

  1. Hey all,

    Just wanted to let you in on something helpful that I use in NICU a lot, especially on micros who are on a lot of trickle drips and whose d-sticks are all over the place. It's called GIRCalculator (search for it - one word- in the app store on your iphone).

    It allows you to easily calculated the combined GIR of all your drips infusing into the baby and give you an idea of how to tweak them.

    Hope you guys find this helpful!

    Hi there Steve, Im a nurse in a levelIII nicu at my local children's hospital. I'll be starting NNP school in Jan 2016, and wanted to know if you had any tips for surviving NNP school? Books/Journals I should read? Tips on classes or clinicals? I'll take any advice you may have, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi RN.amour- my recommendation would be to sift through the threads on this forum. All those questions have been asked and answered many times. Good luck!
