EMS 12-Lead podcast – Episode #8 – Jim Broselow, M.D. 

In this episode of the EMS 12-Lead podcast we're joined by Jim Broselow, M.D., inventor of the Broselow Tape for pediatric resuscitation. We discuss the Broselow Tape as well as eBroselow.com, the Artemis Pediatric System and the SafeDose app.

If you've been in EMS for any length of time you're probably familiar with this.

But you need to become familiar with this!

    Great podcast! Interesting to hear that Dr. Broselow sees so many problems with the tape as it’s currently in use. Not sure how realistic it would be to resuscitate a child using an app, especially if I had to use a barcode scanner. When the s**t is hitting the fan I’ve found that I can’t use an app. Has that been formally studied? Thanks again for this information!! JH

    There actually has been a formal study.  Harvard's Boston Children's Hospital found that using the app with barcode scanner was very slightly better than a paper system.  And this was with nurses who were just then introduced to the app but had been using the paper-based system for years.  We expect the numbers to get even better as the app improves and people get used to it.

    The eBroselow SafeDose app has a vastly simpler and quicker user interface than competing apps, so folks should try it before assuming the experience will be similar to other apps. SafeDose gives you the mL volume to inject.  So, especially with children, it is quicker and safer for acute care when used along with the Broselow Tape or the cheaper, generic, PediaTape.

  • It is not really that I see so many problems with the Tape as it is being used. It is just that the Tape has limited real estate while the numberof drugs and indications rise exponentially. There just isn't enough room to put all the relevant medication doses, conversions to mLs, dilutions, adverse effects,etc along with equipment in a single box. This is especially relevant at the hospital level.

    Very helpful info, thanks. Mr. Lazar, could you please let us know the specific article you reference in your post above? I'd like to take a look at that study from Boston Children's using the app vs the paper system.
    Thank you

12 Lead ECG – Lead Placement Diagrams
I have been doing EKG's for the past thirty years. It use to be that you always lay the patient in the supine position but here lately I have been told that with the patient sitting up right will not change the EKG, is this so ?

Understanding Atropine
Hi Tony, thank you for writing. It's always a bit of a gamble to give opinion in such topics without being there, however, addressing ventilation is a must. The rate could be secondary to vagal stimulation and/or respiratory depression, but it sounds like the patient is compensating pretty well when it comes to the hemodynamic…

Understanding Atropine
Looking for an opinion. Had a pt. who was unconscious from unknown etiology, Agonal respiration = 6, SPO2 = 59, heart rate =37 sinus bradycardia, B/P = 137/80 . We ventilate the pt. approx for 2 minutes without change in status. Would you have administered atropine or continue with BVM to attempt to correct hypoxia,…

57 year old male: Chest Discomfort
I'm sorry but I don't see any flutter here. With a rate of 150 we are at the very upper limit of sinus tach. No O2 is indicated with a pulse ox of 94%, especially if you are thinking cardiac. Place in position of comfort, large bore IV, fluid bolus, ASA, nitro, capnography, complete assessment…
