The ruler that saves lives
Emergencies involving children are particularly challenging for all involved. Most mistakes happen in the dosing of medications. The PädNFL helps emergency physicians and paramedics to avoid incorrect dosages in seconds: All recommendations for action are clearly arranged on the ruler according to the child’s height and weight.
Most emergency physicians and paramedics have no specific training and limited experience in dealing with pediatric emergencies. Because this cannot be generated by the rescue service alone. Knowledge of physiologic normals, appropriate equipment sizes, and pediatric pharmacotherapy is also usually limited. In addition, the weight of the small patients is often unknown.
The PädNFL is the solution for this. Because all the topics mentioned, all the necessary information can be seen at a glance – without having to look up in accompanying booklets or make your own calculation steps in the stress situation.
The PädNFL is the only tool in the world that has already been proven in two studies to help prevent life-threatening errors in pediatric emergencies.
