10/9/2009 - PedDrugDose continues to gain new users, both in the United States and world-wide.  This month, PedDrugDose now has users (of either of the versions) in over 100 US cities and 8 other countries.  To see the list of cities and countries, click here.

As the use of PedDrugDose and similar programs increases, we can only hope to see a reduction in the enormous number of pediatric dosing errors which are so commonplace.  As cited elsewhere on this site, Dr. Timothy Ferris, MD, MPH, Associate professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins extrapolated the available data on pediatric dosing errors during his slide show presentation [Text] [PowerPoint] at the 2008 AHRQ Conference.  Here, it was estimated that there could be over 4,000,000 pediatric dosing errors per year in this country alone.  PedDrugDose can help you to ensure that your patients are not among those unfortunate statistics and it saves you time as well.

Please note that Dr. Ferris is not affiliated in any way with this site or with PedDrugDose and to my knowledge doesn't even know that I, PedDrugDose or this website exist.  Accordingly, no endorsement is implied and none should be inferred.  I mention him and his presentation as it seems to be the most convincing and concise summary of the problem.
