This phone app is a welcome addition to the textbook A Practice of Anesthesia for Infants and Children, Elsevier, Inc (by Charles J. Coté, Jerrold Lerman and Brian Anderson). This very user-friendly design and interface of the advanced app presents a trove of valuable clinical information for the practitioner. Specifically, the app includes a quick drug calculator for most pediatric anesthesia and critical care medications (including antibiotics, sedatives and local anesthetics), management of emergency situations including anaphylaxis, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, difficult airway algorithms, and malignant hyperthermia, as well as diagrams of all major congenital heart lesions complete with bullet points for their anesthesia related management. In addition, guidelines for blood component therapy, dosing of inotropes, diagnosis and management of diabetes insipidus, endotracheal tube size based on age and much more important information is included. This advanced app version will be updated approximately every 6 months with exciting new data, tables and diagrams.



  • Issued fixed

    Crashing issue fixed!
  • Nope. Still bad.

    By caro_wit
    Thought the app was fixed, but now even though it opens, if you try to actually use it every page takes you to a scrolling weight wheel and no other info is displayed.
  • Outstanding!

    This app is back up and running! So glad. One of the most useful Anesthesiology apps I’ve found to date. Definitely an essential during residency.
  • Won’t open with new OS update

    *Edit #2* This app has finally been updated and works well again. One of my favorites for a quick reference when taking care of the kiddos. Here’s hoping the developers are more responsive to updates in the future. *Edit* I have changed my review to one star as several months later there is so no update and the app is entirely unusable. I paid for the pro version, and despite that, I still can't get any support. This is a five star app when it works, but the lack of support and updates make this a one star app currently. I initially rated this 4 stars because of how helpful this app is. However, it won’t open after upgrading to the new OS. No support appears to be available via their website. Will get 5 stars when this gets addressed.
  • Worthless

    By Asystole...stable
    I paid for pro and with no updates it is completely WORTHLESS
  • Won’t open with iOS update

    Please fix this. I paid for this app and now can’t open it without it immediately crashing! The app support website link is dead.
  • Great when it used to work

    I would give this a 5/5 but within the last month or so the app doesn’t open any more and automatically closes. I have the most updated version of the app and even reinstalled it after the latest IOS update as of 11/13/17. Was very useful for dosing, airway guidance, and liked the overall features of the app. I am willing to change my review if they can get this app working again.
  • Was a great app-needs updating

    By Olivia123485
    I really enjoyed this app and found it very useful in pre-planning for peds cases. However, since the latest iOS update, the app does not work. It crashes upon opening. Please update!!!
  • Bug with iOS update?

    By Nickname09887
    The app has a nice interface however currently the app is not able to open. This may coincide with upgrading my iOS which makes me think some maintenance work needs to be done. Please fix this bug to make the app current and functional with the newest iOS.
  • Great app please fix!

    By TMacNair
    Great app, I used it frequently in my practice but since the new iOS release it now crashes as soon as I open it. Please fix!
