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

83 Year Old Male: Shortness of Breath
@ Kyle I would question your authority to call out people for not having a license or being a know it all parapup when your tx basically entails "call medical control." I think we can both agree that his cardiac output is not great at all. I assume your reluctance to give him any other…

Well st elevation in avr and v1 associated with anterior and lateral depression would call for possible posterior wall MI. 15 lead would be in order. Also check all the leads for appropriate placing. If v7, v8, and v9 show the elevation i would treat as a STEMI per my protocol. Asprin only until medical…

The most awesome STEMI test on the internet!
Thanks for the app. It made me think about all that one may see in the field. The only problem was I never got a score or saw the results of how I did other than saying I had completed the test. Anyway a great way to get the old brain working.

I mostly agree with dustin. I believe this is may be an isolated posterior MI. The R wave in V2 points to it being a posterior MI. otherwise it is a 1st degree av block with a LAHB. I am somewhat concerned with the concordant t segment depression noted and in fact if you were…

Great article , however in VF caused by hyperkalemia it should be avoided along with lidocaine , Since it shuts down the K channels, the eiteiology of the arrest hyper K, K channels are needed to exchange K in the cell. Calcium , Bicarbonate, dextrose and insulin should be used to decrease K levels along…
