iPhone app for treatment of pediatric pneumonia

March 30, 2011

Community acquired pneumonia pediatric management iPhone app in iTunes

Over the past several months, I’ve been working with Dr Jason Newland at Children’s Mercy Hospital to develop an alternative method for delivery of an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for the treatment of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) in children. Dr Newland, working with a team of pediatric experts at Children’s Mercy, developed the original guideline two years ago and has been in use since that time via a webpage on the hospital’s site. We sought to make the guideline more accessible by providing an easy to use interactive algorithm for iOS devices that guides clinicians in the appropriate workup and antibiotic management for ambulatory and inpatient CAP in children.

This app is intended for med students, residents, and experienced clinicians providing care for children with community acquire pneumonia. The app is free and available through iTunes for iOS devices. Please download the app and add it to your clinical reference tools. Any and all feedback about the app is welcome via iTunes review, this post, or email (josh [at] joshherigon [dot] com).
