Discontinued App

Description

The WETFAG app gives the health care provider direct access to the important factors in cardiopulmonary resuscitation of children. WETFAG is an acronym for: Weight, Energy, Tube, Fluid, Adrenaline and Glucose. When tending to a critically ill child in the ER, ICU or ward the clinician using this app will have access to the accurate dose of Adrenaline/Epinephrine, Fluid Bolus, Glucose/Dextrose Bolus, Electric Chock Energy and size of Endotracheal Tube. And this only by typing in the weight of the child or estimating the values by typing in age. *IMPORTANT* All users must agree to the LICENSED APPLICATION USER LICENSE AGREEMENT. WETFAG-calc is based on the Advanced Pediatric Life Support WETFAG-mnemonic, and uses the weight based doses that are taught in APLS-courses. Weight however is not calculated but more accurately derived from growth carts. Energy for defibrillation is calculated as 4 joule per kg. Tracheal tube size and ETT top to nose/lips -distance is derived from the typical weight of each age, and not calculated by age as taught in APLS-courses. Consider this when treating obese and underweight children. Fluid Bolus dose is calculated as 10 and 20 ml/kg. Adrenaline/Epinephrine dose is calculated as 0.01 mg/kg. Glucose/Dextrose dose is calculated as 5 ml/kg of 10% solution. WETFAG-calc also gives the appropriate size for Laryngeal Mask Airway based on the weight recommendations of the manufacturer.
