Finally one doser for children’s diphenhydramine (Benadryl), acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin), prednisolone (Prelone)… and labelled with pounds too for you metric-phobes! Works for kids up to 100 pounds and gives more precise dosing than your kitchen teaspoon or the miniature shot glass that comes with the meds. For you medical folk, the doser delivers 15mg/kg acetaminophen, 1.17mg/kg diphenhydramine, 9.37mg/kg ibuprofen and 1.41mg/kg prednisolone.
We typically provide dosers during pediatric house calls. If you would like one, feel free to contact us.
“The study, conducted at pediatric clinics in New York, Atlanta and Stanford, Calif., also found that most dosing errors occurred when parents used a measuring cup. There were fewer errors when parents measured the dose with an oral syringe.”
