AAP Offers New Online Pediatric Symptom Checker on HealthyChildren.org
Date:6/29/2010

HealthyChildren.org, the official American Academy of Pediatrics Web site for parents, has launched KidsDoc Symptom Checker, a new online tool to help users evaluate their child's symptoms. The tool is also available as a downloadable iPhone application.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2010 -- What should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? A new symptom checker tool from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will help parents decide what to do next. KidsDoc Symptom Checker is available on HealthyChildren.org, the official AAP Web site for parents and other caregivers.

Users enter their child’s symptoms into the interactive tool and receive up-to-date advice about how to treat minor illnesses at home, or when to call the doctor immediately. The tool is based on the clinical protocols used by pediatricians and nurses in 10,000 practices and 400 nurse advice call centers in the U.S. and Canada. These protocols have been tested for 15 years on more than 150 million phone calls.

Each symptom care guide includes a decision chart to help determine the severity of the illness and how to manage it. The symptom checker also includes pediatric dosage tables by weight for common over-the-counter medications, images to help identify rashes, stings and bites, and first aid illustrations.

"Many parents have trouble deciding whether or not to call the pediatrician when their child is sick. This new tool will help guide them to the right decision quickly and easily," says Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP, Medical Editor, HealthyChildren.org.
