The Pedi-Wheel is a convenient pocket reference tool that puts vital pediatric data at your fingertips. This sturdy, full-color, water resistant device provides virtually all of the information you will need to successfully perform during a pediatric emergency. It's an incredibly valuable reference for medical professionals and students alike because we've compiled volumes of vital pediatric information into this handy slide chart that is only the size of a compact disc. The Pedi-Wheel is perfect for every day use or as a study aid. Turn the dial to your patient's age on one side and normal weights, vital signs, airway adjunct and equipment sizes appear through the window. Age categories range from premature infant to 16 years-old. Flip the Pedi-Wheel over and turn the dial to the patient's weight between 2 and 75 kilograms. Now precalculated dosages for the most common emergency medications immediately appear. The Pedi-Wheel contains information on 14 emergency meds, fluid resuscitation, defibrillation, and cardioversion and conforms to AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support guidelines. It even has a special pediatric burn table to help you accurately calculate percentage of body surface area in a burn injury.

I have used the Pedi-Wheel. It is wonderful. It makes life in the back of the paramedic unit much easier when dealing with critical pediatric patients. Thanks! My hats off to you! (Greenville, SC) -- Jeff Straub
I just purchased two Pedi-Wheels for our ambulances, the information on it is invaluable. We are a Volunteer service with frequent Paramedic intercepts. The wheel would be valuable to them as well. (Coventry, CT) -- Mary Engler,R.N..CCRN,FF/EMT-B
I used the Pedi-Wheel on a traumatic infant CPR the other day. The patient was ejected during a single vehicle rollover with multiple patients. We found this infant with agonal respirations. The patient coded shortly thereafter. The Pedi-Wheel made my job much easier by far! The other medic just looked at me when I spit out the doses after a moment of "wheeling". I will always remember that look! By the way, pulses were regained during transport! (Sacramento, CA) -- Greg Landon, Paramedic
