Surviving Healthcare Today: Preventing Dosage Errors for Kids
February 16, 2017•50 min
Guest: Dr. James Broselow. Medication dosing for pediatric patients has a high potential for medical error. Called "weight-based dosing", a 2006–2007 study found that 1/3 of pediatric medication errors were the result of "improper dose/quantity", and 2.5% of those led to patient harm. eBroselow provides practitioners with fast, size-specific therapeutic information in seconds so that they can deliver medication at the right dose.
