Calculators

These clinical calculators have been designed to assist clinicians with weight based calculations in children. These calculators do not replace a medication prescription or clinical judgement. All drug calculations are based on established paediatric resuscitation resources (ARC & APLS) and protocols at the author’s institution. Please review your local protocols before prescribing these drugs.  

An individual patient's condition may warrant variation in drug doses calculated - clinicians must take this into account before prescribing any medication.

Please check all prescriptions and medications carefully as the author takes no responsibility for the accuracy of doses or calculations. These calculators are designed to be used in conjunction with an appropriate formulary which contains information on drug interactions, compatibilities, precautions, side effects, rates of delivery, maximum/minimum doses and drug monitoring. 

By clicking on the links below, you acknowledge you are a clinician with acute paediatric skills who is familiar with the drugs and their effects. Please verify all sizes, doses and calculations before use.
