How To Use PEDIATAPE

Indications for Use

Pediatric patients less than 144cm in length and / or 37kg in weight.

Basic Instructions

Measure height of patient from either end to get the color zone. Use a medical reference, color-coded with Dr. Broselow's color zones, to get the drug dose and administration instructions. The following are some free and deluxe apps for various smartphones:

Can also be used with one of the following FREE dosing reference PDFs:

These contain standard doses for common resuscitation medications. Feel free to print, laminate and use at your hospital or EMS agency.

If you provide the translation for the words in these PDFs, we'd be happy to create a free dosing reference into other languages if possible. Contact us at info@pediatape.com

Or, subscribe to Artemis at www.ebroselow.com for a color-coded reference to thousands of medication doses and concentrations.

Overweight Patients

PEDIATAPE color zones are based on 50th percentile estimated weight for length from the 2007-2008 U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data set. For obese patients, bump up to the next higher color zone. 

Care and Cleaning

PEDIATAPE measuring and dosing recommendation products are water resistant and easily cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive anti-microbial cleaner.
