Pedi-Dose was written to do the simple but repetitive mathematical tasks required when treating pediatric patients.

I wrote it because I am an emergency physician practicing in a retirement area of Florida.
The average age of my patients is about 65...far beyond the pediatric age group.

I have the opportunity to see and treat children much less frequently than I did years ago.
I find myself looking up almost every medication for mg/kg dosing because I use them so infrequently.

In any case, I came upon a nifty little subset of C called PocketC and I wrote Pedi-Dose ver 1.0 to learn how to use PocketC and to create a quick-to-use medication reference.
