Weight estimates are used frequently to determine appropriate medication dosage, fluid volumes for resuscitation, breathing tube sizes, shock voltages for cardio-respiratory arrest and more. They also help clinicians determine whether children are growing normally.

The data were presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting in Washington, D.C., the largest international meeting focused on research in child health, and published online last month in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.

The TAPE, which stands for "TAking the guesswork out of Pediatric weight Estimation," is based on an estimation technique called the Mercy Method. The Mercy Method estimates weight based on the length and circumference of the upper arm. The Mercy TAPE, which looks like a tape measure, translates the measurements into a weight that is displayed directly on the device and requires only simple addition by the user.

Children's Mercy Hospital researchers confirmed that this method performs as well in underweight and obese children as it does in children of normal weight. International studies also have demons
