iPhone App: Pediatric SymptomMD

City Mom here! Any Mommy iPhone users out there? If so, I have to make this app recommendation. It's called Pediatric SymptomMD and it is a fabulous resource for helping a parent to triage their child's illness, injury or symptoms. Read on to check out all of the incredibly useful features this little app has to offer, including a pediatric dosage table, as well as a ton of visual images to help you identify symptoms (rashes, bug bites, etc.).

Here is the overview:

What should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? When can your child return to school or child care after an illness? These are medical advice questions that all parents have. Health problems can arise anytime – evenings, weekends, when you’re at work or traveling or your doctor’s office is closed.

Pediatric SymptomMD is designed especially for these times. The care guides help you make smart decisions on what level of care (if any) is needed and how to provide speedy symptom relief for minor illnesses or injuries you can manage on your own.

Pediatric SymptomMD is derived from the clinical protocols used by pediatricians and nurses in 10,000 practices and 400 nurse advice call centers in the US and Canada. They have been tested for 15 years on more than 150 million symptom calls.

Easy 3-step navigation:
1. Choose the most appropriate symptom care guide (out of 89)
2. Use the symptom decision chart to find the recommended action
3. Follow the self care advice to make your child more comfortable

The care guide that best matches your child’s symptom can be located quickly by using alphabetical index, body area index, or keyword search.
