The Pedi-Wheel is a convenient pocket reference tool that puts vital pediatric data at your fingertips. This sturdy, full-color, water resistant device provides virtually all of the information you will need to successfully perform during a pediatric emergency. An incredibly valuable reference for medical professionals and students because we've compiled volumes of vital pediatric information into this slide chart that is only the size of a compact disc. The Pedi-Wheel is perfect for every day use or as a study aid. Turn the dial to your patient's age on one side and the following information appears in the window: average weight, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, suggested sizes for ET tubes and laryngoscope blades, as well as the average length of a properly inserted ET tube at the teeth or gum line. Age categories range from premie to 16 years-old.
