Description

As seen on the American Academy of Pediatrics parenting web site, www.HealthyChildren.org.
Is your child sick? Whether you're on the go or at home, this app will help you know what to do next.

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 youre at work or traveling or your doctors office is closed.

KidsDoc 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.

KidsDoc 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 16 years on more than 150 million symptom calls.

Features
Easy 3-step navigation:
1. Choose the most appropriate symptom care guide (out of 99)
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 childs symptom can be located quickly by using the alphabetical index, body area index, or keyword search.

Content - each symptom care guide contains:
* Definition which describes the focus of the care guide so you can decide if its a good fit for your child's problem. If not, there are quick links to related care guides.

* Decision Chart which helps determine what action is suggested based on the severity and description of your child's symptom. Once you have a match, simply follow the corresponding action, such as Call 911, Call Your Childs Doctor Now, Call Your Childs Doctor within 24 hours or Manage at Home.

* Immediate Connections to medical help, such as 911, your childs doctor or nearby Emergency Department (ER) are available if you have phone service.

* Home Care Advice is available for any illnesses and injuries that can be safely treated at home. The instructions provide clear, up-to-date steps for relieving symptoms.

Extras:
* Medication and Allergy List for tracking important information about your familys prescriptions and/or over the counter medications.

* Pediatric dosage tables by weight for common over-the-counter medications.

* Visual images to help you identify symptoms (e.g. rashes), injuries and common causes of bites & stings.

* First Aid topics and illustrations to support immediate action, if needed.
