#Recently featured in the BMJ, The Lancet and on ITV News# The Paediatric Emergency Drugs (Paeds Drugs) App combines years of clinical experience in the care of critically ill children with hand-held technology. The application uses formulas designed and developed by the team at the South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS) and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit of the Evelina Children's Hospital, Guy's and St Thomas' Trust, London. UBQO has distilled this clinical excellence and put it in the palm of your hand.

Clinicians and nurses in the south east of England rely on the STRS team for guidance and advice as to how to deal with paediatric emergencies. Paediatric Emergency Drugs brings together key pieces of this knowledge and experience in a simple to use, offline and convenient application to facilitate dealing with clinical emergencies in children. Calculations are now available without the need for a computer or access to the internet. After the entry of patient age and weight, results are quickly presented in a logical and clear manner. Simple, concise and to the point.

Paeds Drugs is useful for nurses, doctors, ambulance crew and everyone who needs key Paediatric Drug data in their pocket
