There is a Pedi Crisis 2.0 app that was launched at the SPA-AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2019 meeting. This free app was developed by the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia and provides a checklist approach to critical events during perioperative care. It’s meant for real-time use during actual critical events but is also useful for self-study and review. Some features:
- Diagnostic support
- Optimized navigation
- Weight-based dosing
- Critical institution-specific phone numbers for emergency response
The Pedi Crisis 2.0 App® is a free resource to support clinician responses to pediatric perioperative life-threatening critical events. The electronic environment features optional diagnostic support, optimized navigation, weight-based dosing, critical institution-specific phone numbers pertinent to emergency response, and accessibility for those who want larger font sizes. The human factors design and functionality of the app were optimized for clinician use in real time during actual critical events, and can also be used for self-study or review. For each event, clinicians can quickly access pertinent information through the relevant tab: Dx for diagnosis, DDx for differential diagnosis, Tx for treatment, Drugs for a summary of drugs and dosages, Misc for additional information (e.g. pacing instructions) and Crisis for additional (cardiac) crisis management information.
