Virginia Tech, Carilion team with physician to create digital ER pediatric response chart
Date:12/6/2010

A well-known paper-based medical chart used by pediatric emergency personnel across America is undergoing a 21st century boost in an collaborative effort between Virginia Tech's College of Engineering, Roanoke-based Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital, and the physician who created the original method some 25 years ago.

The Broselow Pediatric Emergency Tape otherwise known as the Broselow Tape -- has been a staple of ERs and child trauma units for nearly three decades. Created by Hickory, N.C.-based physician James Broselow, the Broselow Tape is a long, durable tape measure used on a child during a medical emergency. Using a color coded-format, it provides specific medical instructions amounts of medicines to dispense or level of shock voltage to emit from a defibrillator, for instance to medical caregivers based on the height and then subsequent weight of the child.

This information now will be displayed on a large LCD monitor within emergency rooms, for all personnel to see.

"We are converting the existing Broselow Tape into an electronic format to improve resuscitation team communications and patient safety," said Andre A. Muelenaer Jr., an associate professor of pediatrics at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, adjunct professor at Virginia Tech-Wake Forrest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Science (http://www.sbes.vt.edu/), and director of the Pediatric Medical Device Institute, located in Roanoke, Va.

Additional displayed information will include medicines administered to the patient, including the time of administration and the next scheduled allotment. In the instance of burns, an automated calculation of the affected surface area will be displayed, along with automated calculation of fluid resuscitation.

A click of a mouse/remote control can move responders from one screen to another. The software running the newly-dubbed eBroselow s
