When you work in resuscitation as I do, there’s only one thing that matters: finding a quick way to stabilize the patient. You need to be able to deal with all kinds of emergencies.
But it’s impossible to be an expert in every field and the first hour of resuscitation is often chaotic. And, all too often, the life of a patient at death’s door still depends on calculations with a tiny piece of paper and a calculator. It makes no sense!
We created an app called EZDrips which makes it easier to administer medication to all patients. But this app is not enough—our needs are still enormous.
Benjamin. I’ll remember this little boy for as long as I live. He’s the first newborn I ever resuscitated as an emergency doctor at Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne.
We saved him but we were out of our comfort zone. So many questions and complicated calculations. The chance of making an error in dosage was huge. And there was so little time to think!
Thanks to you, our app won’t just help with medication, but with all the procedures we have to follow in critical care—all at our fingertips!
I’ve surrounded myself with specialists in resuscitation, pharmacology and poisoning. All volunteers! They too have many, many stories. Like the 30-year-old woman who was 35 weeks pregnant. She had been hit by a car. The team had to perform a perimortem caesarian. A nightmare for any emergency doctor.
