Among "The Best Drug Reference Apps for Emergency Physicians" - Emergency Physicians Monthly

5 STARS - "Simple interface provides rapid access to critical data needed when managing a critically ill pediatric patient"

5 Stars - "Very useful for treating kids in high pressure situations with precision."


Pedi-STAT features include:

- Rapid results for airway interventions including endotracheal tube sizes, depth, intubation medication dosages, ventilator settings, and sedation

- Cardiac resuscitation data including weight specific dosages for resuscitation medications, cardioversion, and defibrillation

- Access to age and weight specific pediatric equipment including foley catheters, airway management, chest and NG tubes, peripheral and central line sizes, and more

- Seizure medication dosages

- Management of hypoglycemia including age specific dextrose concentrations

- Reference of age specific normal vital signs

- Procedural sedation dosages including single dose meds and infusions, as well as reversal agents

- Calculated pain management medications

- Medical management of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis

Users can quickly access critical information accurately, without having to rely on memory or cumbersome textbooks.

With just a few taps, users have access to all the necessary data to care for a pediatric patient in the emergent setting, including weight-based and age specific medication dosages and equipment sizes.

Since many of the patients present with minimal known information, all the results can be calculated rapidly with only a known age, date-of-birth, weight, length, or height. Simply enter the known variable and the data is instantly calculated.

Developed by an Emergency Physician, this app minimizes the risk of medical errors allowing the provider to spend more time caring for the patient, and less time looking up and calculating doses.

It is a critical companion for any physician, nurse, paramedic, or medical trainee involved in the care of critically ill pediatric patients.

Pedi STAT Comments & Reviews 2022

- PO Antibiotics

Just downloaded this app only to find there’s no options/recommendations for PO antibiotics?? I know this app is designed with ER physicians in mind, but certainly there are times when even they send patients home on PO antibiotics. I think that would really make this app much more complete and helpful for those of us in family medicine, urgent care, etc. Otherwise great app and very user friendly.

- Best paeds quick reference

I’m an EM doc, have tried all the various paeds quick reference apps, for my purposes, i find this one easiest to use and most comprehensive for most “real world” applications. Many others are organized by cards for the patient weight with all i fo in one place. This is more what i was looking for, a weight-based reference that is organised by the symptom i am treating, helpful for everyday things like antipyretics and antiemetics, which i (fortunately) use more frequently in my practice than resuscitation medications in paeds (although these are also available and easy to reference in the app as well)

- Great App for Emergency Medicine

I always get stuck on Pediatric dosing when I’m working through pediatric Simulation cases. I used this app on my friend’s phone and was pleasantly surprised at how quick, simple, and easy it is to use. I can confidently say that this app was the easiest to use when compared to competitors that I’ve also tried in other pediatric cases. I’m very excited to now have this app and continue using it as I continue growing in my career!

- Excellent Peds Resource

This is a must have app for any provider (physician, nurse, tech) who works in a pediatric setting. It’s very user friendly, quick to access and manipulate to find what you need, and accurate to patient care. If you’re looking for an app that will help guide your care and answer quick questions regarding dosages or weight/age-based management, this is the app for you. 100% worth the purchase & download!

- Love it, ALMOST perfect

Missing a search function. If I know what medicine I need / want but just need a dose, I want to be able to search for the medicine instead of clicking through categories I think it might be in. Please give me a search functionality!!

- Love this app!

This is my go to pediatric application and I recommend it regularly. It gives you quick and easy access to dosages tailored to your patient without having to do math in the middle of an emergency. One click and the answer is at your fingertips. A little pricey but totally worth it!

- Great Pedi for real 911 EMS calls

I’m a firefighter / Paramedic, I’ve been using this app for 4 years. I look up pedi doses enroute to calls so once arrive I know shocking Jules and cardiac drugs. Then by that time the broslow tape is out. Then use that. I use also for quick reference on vital signs. Highly recommended the app.

- Best Peds app ever

Thankfully I’ve never had to actually use this app (so far) other than in scenarios but as a Paramedic I recommend anyone in emergency services have this on their phone. The information is displayed really well and is very easy to get to when time matters.

- Good app

Exceptional app, use it for every pediatric flight. However, besides the drug dosages in mg's listed, I wish this app listed the mL's and the standard dose concentrations for meds. It would just make that one step quicker for healthcare personnel to not have to calculate mg-ml in an emergency.

- The Best Peds quick reference app out there

I have tried out every app out there for peds EM dosing and Pedi STAT is truly the best. So easy to navigate, use, and really my lifeline during peds codes/critical cases. I recommend it to all our EM and Peds residents at my institution to use.


I am a pals instructor and I use this app often as a supplement to other information. For example, nothing on the broselow tape for Benadryl but we can find it on Pedi STAT. Easy to use! Students often download the app right class!

- Essential

An essential app for pediatric calculations. When I’m on my way to a Ped patient this is my go-to quick reference. Great tool for cognitive off-loading.

- Great app

I have worked in Pediatrics/ICU before and now work in my local ED. This app is really great. In addition, it contains an inadvertent typo which gave me a much-needed laugh. In one of the screens the term "broncospasm" is used instead of "bronchospasm." Given that the context for the word conjured up a bucking horse, I'd say the slip of the keyboard/spellchecker completely fits the type of patient one would be using a paralytic agent on!

- Great reference

Only thing I really suggest the developers look at are the new NRP guidelines and recommendations for neonatal dosing. Hope that helps!!!

- Very useful

for those who treat sick kids infrequently


Best app money can buy (and its for free!). This app is the best quick pocket reference for emergency peds Meds ever!

- Wouldn’t recommend

I’m an ER doc. This app is not useful. Each topic is too compartmentalized. Not simple to find things you need.

- No reversal doses

The updated app again does not include weight based dose for reversal (glyco and neo) which seems like a large omission for the app.

- Amazing App

This is my go to for anything Pedi!!

- Highly Intuitive in Stressful Situations

As a pediatric nurse I often find myself in need of information that can be difficult to obtain quickly. Often I am required to remember large quantities of information that specifically pertain to the age and/or weight of a child in care. This app makes it simple to understand exactly what's needed and when. The user interface is extremely well thought-out, thereby completely eliminating my initial learning curve. Definitely worth the 3 bucks I paid for this. One of the best medical apps I have for my iPhone.

- Great app for critical peds management - thank you!

As a practicing EM attending of 10 years, I feel compelled to write this review today. This morning I had a seizing baby arrive that was difficult to manage and this app kept me calm. I downloaded it a few weeks ago, liked the UI and hadn't used until this morning. A good medical app allows you to open it when you need it and quickly obtain critical information. This app fit the bill - flawless when needed most. PLEASE don't bloat it down with junk that I don't need....keep it as is.


I have always respected Dr. Kempema's clinical judgement and ability to respond to critical situations. He has taken my confidence in his knowledge even farther with the creation of this App. Working at an adult Level 1 trauma center, it is rare that we get critical children. Second guessing your dosing of lifesaving medications is the last stress you need. Pedi Stat makes it so simple and takes away the anxiety over medication dosing. As a mom, I have even used the App for over the counter medications, such as Benadryl. What a great reference to have at my fingertips! This App is for ALL medical staff!!!

- the Best Pedi App! Way to go!

I've used this and several other pedi apps. This is by far the best. The ability to get patient information by weight, age, or length is critical in cases when the weight isn't the only value known. And on top of that, the organization in this app makes it very easy to find what I'm looking for. The other apps are lacking these features, and so I would definitely recommend this over any other pedi app. This one is great!

- Great!!!

This is a fantastic program to help you manage the sick / crashing kid. It is not an all encompassing pediatric drug reference. A few antibiotics can be remembered, and anything else can be looked up. This gives you quick access to what you don't have time to look up, and does the critical calculations for you. This is not going to be the only pediatric reference you will ever need, but it is the one that will really help you out in a bind!!!!

- sativaandbrad

I am an RN in a busy emergency room. This app is great for me! We see pedi pts but not that many, so when I need information quickly, this app is perfect. Any life saving treaments are right at my fingertips and I dont have to calculate doses! That is a huge plus for me! It is very in depth and I have even shown in to all of the paramedics that come in because it would be great to use on scene. It's like PALS on my phone...but easier! A portable broselow! I love it!

- Update ruined it

I usually don't write reviews but I hope the developers see this and fix the app. Pedi star was great; all the info at your fingertips, drugs and equipment. After the update it is now written for medical students, interns, or nurses who aren't used to dealing with sick patients. The meds are listed within algorithms and in giant categories. It's too unwieldly to use in an emergency or on the way to one. It has far too much basic information in the way of the real information. This basic information is not the kind needed when seeing a sick kids. It gets in the way and if that's the info you need, you don't need pedi stat, you need another doctor.

- Extremely helpful!

As an emergency physician in a predominantly adult ER, this app is worth it's weight in gold. The sick kid isn't a problem for me. It's the critically ill child who presents through triage in distress and no one seemingly can find a Broslow. This scenario doesn't happen often (thankfully) but it does periodically. The app allows you to generate drug dosages via age or weight. This app is a must need for any practicing emergency physician!!

- Exceptional App

This app is quick, prompt, and accurate with most pediatric emergencies. I have used this for over three years now, and it is my #1 go to app for any sick kid. Plus, it is easy to navigate based on age, etc to get to where you want to be quickly. This single app is the reason I ALWAYS make sure my iTouch is charged and ready to go at my side.


I have had this app since it's inception. It is just awesome! Easy to use/navigate, comprehensive and accurate. I am a flight nurse on a busy EMS helicopter and utilize it often. I agree that the 1 star review with the word "worthless" requires specifics from the writer otherwise I question the motivation and or knowledge of this individual in this arena...

- A MUST - Have!

This is by far the best program of its kind. Intuitive, accurate, complete, and incredibly easy to use. This is essential for anyone taking care of kids in emergent situations. No more flipping through the Pharmacopoeia in a panic!!

- Terrific!

As an orthopaedic surgeon, I am not in the habit of intubating too many kids, but I do operate on them. This app is absolutely terrific. It's great in the post op setting for my patients' pain management needs. This app is an absolute must for any surgeon who operates on kids.

- Excellent app!

Easy to use interface. Recommend this to anyone & everyone who takes care of peds patients. One of the best medical apps in ye iTunes store, wish the dev make one for adult patients too!

- Awesome app!!

Everyone who works with kids will find this app useful. The interface is clean and very easy to use. This sure beats remembering formulas and carrying reference cards or pocket books. Download this app now!!! You won't regret it.

- Great App

I think the easy of use makes this app useful both in the field and at the bedside. Lots of cool options and info at the click of your finger! ........regardless of what letters come after my name!

- Could be better

It is a nice reference and has some nice features. Would be a nice tool for the savvy new grad pedi nurse. I don't like the fact that the weight limit is 43kg. That is not useful when many patients are heavier than that. There are also many spelling errors too.

- Outstanding Peds Resource

As an ED RN I use this app frequently, not just for really sick kids, where it's a must have, but for simple things like regular VS for a 3 year old. No resource is perfect but this one is as close as I've found.

- John McKenna RN CTRN CFRN

Outstanding App ! As a flight nurse who constantly deals with time sensitive cases, this app allows you to get the answers you need FAST ! A colleague of mine challenged me to mock scenarios, he had a Braslo tape, I had the App, in the end, he paid for the latte ! Nice work James (o: John McKenna RN CTRN CFRN

- RN

I work in both the ER & Burn ICU and we get a lot of kids, especially toddlers. This is a great app! Very useful & easy to use. I love that by entering weight everything is calculated out for you. Very time saving.

- Great app for EMS

Great app for any EMT or Paramedic, get the information on the way to the cal, age normally, and you will have every drug calculation needed to run any critical pediatric. I do have one issue, the age stops at 12 and the weight ends at 43kg.

- Excellent.

Had a critically ill 2yo in ED last night, and found this incredibly useful, particularly during RSI. Would highly recommend for any health professional who potentially will be caring for sick kids.

- Crucial

Great app saves time and brain damage when double checking yourself or just in a pinch. Wonderful app keep up the good updates.

- A must have for every EM doc!

This app is well done!! I love that it gives me one-dose calculations for my patients without having to fumble with numbers. It is a superb update to a well-loved classic!

- Great New App

Very easy to navigate. Just the info you need and you do not have to navigate thru a bunch of stuff to find it.

- Rapid access for pediatric ER

Simple interface provides rapid access to critical data needed when managing a critically ill pediatric patient.


I work in a busy Level One Trauma center and this app is a great resource for when we get kids in. Makes life much easier

- Great tool for ED/NICU providers

Utilizing this app in the ED as a practicing RN after one of the docs recommended it to me. Simple layout makes any pediatric critical care reference practical while working in a fast paced environment.

- Great little app

This is a great little app. It's very simple and easy to use, and fast, and best of all, its packed with lots on information. Recommended!

- Excellent resource.

As an EM PA I use this app EVERY shift as a double check. Easy to use, concise information. 5 stars all the way.

- Double check medication doses

Users should be aware that some of the dose recommendations for babies and young children are not accurate, and are potentially dangerous. We have contacted the developers who are working to fix this, but in the meantime be careful!

- Nice app, few too many steps

content is good...but it just seems to take too long to find what i need. too many steps...I stopped using it once I downloaded a different pedi app that had the info I needed in a better format.

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- A must-have for every paramedic!

Absolutely brillant! Very well made. Best Pedi app in store. No regrets!

- Fantastic app in need of iPad support

Exceptionally useful app, well worth the cost. Does however need to keep up with new technology and support iPad as this is fast becoming a useful point of care tool.

- .


- How is a GCS if 15 = mild traumatic brain injury?

Gotta fix stuff like that....

- Very handy app

This is a very handy app to have for paed nurses.

- Awesome ED resource

This is a great resource to have available for paediatric emergencies in the ED/ICU. Many of my colleagues use this app regularly for our peds patients. I wish we could search by drug name though, as I don’t always know what category to look under to find a medication.

- Customized Directives

Amazing app and very intuitive. I wish I could plug in my local medical directives and have the app run the formula on those directives.

- No Dark Mode

This update disables dark mode instead of supporting it properly. Edit— I think part of the problem is the developers are focusing their efforts on maintaining iOS 12 support, even though less than 7% of users are on iOS 12. That kind of thing uses a lot of coding and testing time that could be spent implementing modern features like Dark Mode.

- Good But It's 2017

Hey I'm an Advanced Care Paramedic and love using this app, but should not it be updated to the new PALS 2015 guidelines?

- Must have!

If you take care of acutely sick children this app is a must have! I use it regularly.

- Essential app

Simple interface is great for rapid reference. Would be nice to have a search function to rapidly find an item without having to find the item’s category.

- Why change the icon???

Why did you change the icon to that ugly purple thing? I was so used to seeing the colourful icon that I could find the App rapidly. Now I was wondering what happened to my app. When you need the information fast you don't have time to futz around looking for the App.

- Excellent must have resource

Emerg physician. Excellent content and very use friendly interface

- Fantastic App for Emerg Docs

Complete, easily accessible, extremely useful tool. Includes normal vital signs as well as all drug doses/equipment sizes. Broselow in your pocket. Won't give you algorithms, but has things set up according to PALS so you know where to look in a pinch. Just download it... the next pediatric code you run will be much better for it.

- Pedi stat review

I was recommended this app by a coworker. After briefly browsing through the app I encountered several medication spelling errors. I have to admit I find it hard to rely on an app that can't even spell med names correctly. Wish it were more trustworthy!

- Nic

Must have for any nurse or np in clinical settings! Used it this week with dosing for child having seizure! It's a great tool.

- Fantastic app

Phenomenal app. Incredibly user friendly and intuitive. The interface should be the gold standard for emergency medical reference apps!

- Worth it

As a critical care flight paramedic I think that this program is a fantastic reference tool. Good application to the advanced, basic care, and land paramedic.

- Love the info! Dress it up dome more.

The app works flawlessly. Just update it with retina support. Retina displays came out a year ago now, your still making money off this app at $2.99 on sale. Your programmer can afford to do an update. It's now THE only app on my phone without retina support which makes it the ugliest app on my phone. fix that and you'll get a 5 from me.

- Rocks

Great for quick dosing when a resus arrives with only the age known. It could include an antibiotic or "custom" drug section where you could add other drugs to make it a little more usable outside crisis situations.

- It's the best in the care of Children

As an Advanced Life Support Paramedic this app has been great! Recently two 3 mo Arrests, multiple seizures and a couple traumas. Dial it in put it beside the child and my partner and I can dial up what we need to give and confirm our calculations. Significantly reduced stressful calls. Hope they keep improving an already excellent app!! And they just did!

- Great value

Tons of useful information, very easy to use. Great app for the price!

- FINALLY! No more charts!

I just found this amazing APP. I am doctor who works closly with EMTs and is regurlarly on call. This app is extremely intuitive. I will be recommending this to my colleagues. Thanks!
