Paediatric Vital Values is a simple, quick reference to the normal physiological range of heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure… and now GCS, in children of various ages.
In portrait mode, the app displays the physiological reference range for a particular age group. Quickly cycle through different age ranges with a swipe of the finger or go straight to the age range required with a simple click. A handy timer is displayed to aid in the measurement at the bedside. Rotate the device to landscape mode and all physiological ranges are displayed in an easy to read table. If you have an Apple Watch, then Vital Values will even support that giving you the most convenient way to view the data.
Paediatric GCS (Glasgow Coma Scale) flash cards are also displayed on the GCS tab for quick reference. Swipe left and right to switch between Pre-Verbal and Verbal responses.
This app supports auto resume so the information is available as quickly as pulling a card out of your pocket.
The information contained in this app is congruous across many sources internationally and is meant to augment not replace clinical decision making. Responsibility ultimately lies with the clinician to assess the child completely and decide how unwell they are. It should be noted that a child with normal vitals can be very unwell and a child with abnormal vitals can have a relatively mild illness. Vital Values is not meant to act as a substitute for clinical judgement and all information should be checked against local guidelines.
