Since the 1980s, the Broselow Tape has been used to help emergency room personnel treat children. The color-coded tape helps relate a child’s height and weight to the dosages and equipment that should be used. With that in mind, StoreMoreStore now offers a line of pediatric emergency carts with drawers that match the Broselow Tape.
Why the Drawers are Based on Broselow Tape?
The pediatric emergency carts store everything you need to respond to life or death situations including reference books, medications, airway equipment, and IV solutions. This specially designed cart will improve response time and effectiveness by keeping the right size equipment easily accessible and already sorted for the size infant or child that you’re attempting to revive.
In fact, a 2005 study shows that pediatric carts that have drawers based on the Broselow Tape were easier to use than standard carts. “In addition, subjects located intubation equipment and nasogastric tubes significantly faster when using the Broselow cart, and correct equipment was provided significantly more often with the Broselow cart. These data suggest that sites caring for pediatric patients should consider modeling their resuscitation carts after the Broselow cart to enhance provider confidence and patient safety.”
