App Store Description

What should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? When can your child return to school or child care after an illness? What should you do about behavioral issues, from toilet training to teaching responsibility to teenagers? These are medical advice questions that all parents have. Health problems can arise anytime – evenings, weekends, when you’re at work or traveling or your doctor’s office is closed.

Owl Care 4 Kids is designed especially for these concerns and challenges.  

This app is available in English and Spanish. To view the Spanish version, your phone will need to be set to one of the Spanish options in your phone's language settings.

The symptom care guides help you make smart decisions on what level of care (if any) is needed and how to provide speedy symptom relief for minor illnesses or injuries you can manage on your own.

Owl Care 4 Kids is derived from the clinical protocols used by pediatricians and nurses in 10,000 practices and 400 nurse advice call centers in the US and Canada. They have been tested for 15 years on more than 150 million symptom calls.

The Parent Advice Messages deal with the most common behavior and wellness questions parents ask their physicians. Each topic provides a description of the issue, three to five specific recommendations to address the concern, and (often) additional resources which may be useful to your situation. The advice messages can be quickly located by using the alphabetical index, category index or keyword search.

Symptom Checker Features
Easy 3-step navigation: 
Choose the most appropriate symptom care guide 
Use the symptom decision chart to find the recommended action
Follow the self care advice to make your child more comfortable

The care guide that best matches your child’s symptom can be located quickly by using alphabetical index, body area index, or keyword search.

Content - each symptom care guide contains:
* Definition which describes the focus of the care guide so you can decide if it’s a good fit for your problem. If not, there are quick links to related guidelines. 

* Decision Chart which helps determine what action is suggested based on the severity and description of your symptom. Once you have a match, simply follow the corresponding action, such as Call 911, Call Your Child’s Doctor Now, Call Your Child’s Doctor within 24 hours or Manage at Home.  

* Home Care Advice is available for any illnesses and injuries that can be treated at home. The instructions provide clear, up-to-date steps for relieving symptoms.

Extras:
* Medication and Allergy List for tracking important information about your family’s prescriptions and/or over the counter medications.

* Pediatric dosage tables for common over-the-counter medications.

* Visual images to help you identify symptoms (e.g. rashes), injuries and common causes of bites & stings. 

* First Aid topics and illustrations to support immediate action, if needed.
