Broselow Tape System
For those of you not in the know, the Broselow Tape, also called the Broselow pediatric emergency tape, is a colour-coded tape measure that is used throughout the world for pediatric emergencies. The Broselow system categorises a child into a certain weight range based on the child’s length. This weight range is indicated on the tape both as a weight and a color. This requires no calculations from the provider and eliminates a major source of medication dosage error.
In an emergency, the estimation of a child’s weight and drug dosage calculation is done under stressful conditions, increasing the likelihood of dosage errors. It can help simplify some of the decision-making in an emergency by eliminating the need to estimate a child’s weight, which is typically used to calculate the correct dosage for a medication, the size of the equipment that should be used and the level of shock voltage when using a defibrillator.
