The Pedi-Wheel remains one of the most comprehensive and valuable paediatric emergency pocket references available.

Confidence During Paediatric Emergencies! The Pedi-Wheel is a convenient pocket reference tool that puts vital paediatric data at your fingertips. An incredibly valuable reference for medical professionals and students because we've compiled volumes of vital paediatric information into this 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 the following information appears in the window: average weight, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, suggested sizes for ET tubes and laryngoscope blades, as well as the average length of a properly inserted ET tube at the teeth or gum line. Age categories range from preemie to 16 years-old.

Extremely easy 2 sided design, simply turn the dial to reveal vital information.
