Young's Pediatric Anesthesia Reference Sheet - Details

Young's Pediatric Anesthesia Reference Sheet is an outstanding resource that gives vital information for doing anesthesia on pediatric patients. Accurate equipment and drug dosing tables, along with a variety of anesthesia surgical techniques, will guide you to deliver expert anesthesia. The goal of this reference is to reduce morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients through easy access to critical information.

MEDMARX® data reports, Joint Commission sentinel event alerts, anesthesia closed claims reports, and a number of other studies all recommend that in the OR setting, practitioners have access to accurate standardized dose charts, and/or assistive technologies with proper medication calculations and formulations so no patient will be at risk of receiving the wrong dose of drug. Young's Pediatric Anesthesia Reference Sheet includes age appropriate dosing for commonly used medications, emergency medications, fluids and blood products. Better yet, the dosing calculations for a variety of weights have already been done for you. Accurate drug dosing, along with all the other topics covered in this reference, will help to keep you a safe anesthesia provider.

"I work in a rural area and never imagined I would deal with any of the bigger cases you list on the back of your sheet. We delivered a baby the other night whose mother hadn't had prenatal visits. The baby was born with a diaphragmatic hernia! I emergently intubated the baby and then quickly grabbed your sheet to review all that I needed to do. It was truly a lifesaver! I always keep it on my cart! I don't use it every day, but when I have used it, it was a huge help! Thanks!" -JB

"Thank you very much! I tried to make myself a peds sheet during my peds rotation but it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours. I love it! Thank you!"-TD

"I received my pediatric anesthesia reference sheet. I never bought one in school because I always prepared for my cases the night before. 3 weeks into my first job, 4 year old, and I thought I'd never have peds again. Little did I know! It's going to be a huge help! Thanks so much!"-J.H.

"I feel so much more prepared when I use your reference to prepare for a peds case." -S.D.

"I graduate this year and will start working at a peds hospital. Your sheet gives me so much confidence in being able to take care of kids. Thanks!" -C.B.
