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

Adenosine for sinus tachycardia: Try to avoid this!
If it were me, I would seek a second opinion; consult an electrophysiologist. Unlikely that you had sinus tachycardia at that rate.

Adenosine given for a narrow-complex tachycardia over 150
If things such as Sepsis, Drug Use, Medication issues, Anxiety, Pain, etc.. have been ruled out, and the rate is still >160 (or whatever number you use). How else do you determine S-Tach Vs. SVT? Does a 12 Lead Help (QRS Complexes facing different directions due to different pathways etc..) or a simple 4 Lead?…

She may not have had anxiety, but I bet she was a carrier...

Highly unusual for this to be sinus at that rate!

Adenosine for sinus tachycardia: Try to avoid this!
I experience bouts of tachycardia. I had it investigated about 5 years ago after being woken during the night by projectile vomiting and feeling my heart racing/thumping with carotid pulse that I could certainly palpate but had no chance of counting (whether the 2 symptoms were related or coincidental, I don't know). I've had multiple…
