Paediatric resuscitation on a card
One of the best resources I received when I worked at The Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, was a laminated card (the size of a business card) attached to my ID badge lanyard. On this card included normal values for weight, heart rate, respiratory rate for infants and children, the correct dosage for a variety of emergency drugs as well as the recommended sizes for endotracheal tubes, nasogastric tubes and indwelling catheters by age.
Below is a low quality scanned JPEG version of the card (both sides). A high quality PDF version suitable for printing is available at the top of this article.
