New Measuring TAPE Estimates Weight Of Kids Better Than Any Other Method
Date:5/6/2013

trated that it performs as well in children from Africa and Asia. Other pediatric weight estimation techniques that rely on age and/or length do not predict weight consistently across all ages, body types and ethnic groups.

"It is too common for existing weight estimation methods to produce 2- to 3-fold errors in weight. For many medicines, this could result in a child receiving no benefit from the drug or alternatively experiencing serious or life-threatening toxicities," said Susan Abdel-Rahman, PharmD, lead investigator for the study and a clinician in the Division of Clinical Pharmacology and Medical Toxicology at Children's Mercy. "The Mercy Method should allow doctors to deliver doses of medicine to children with more accuracy than ever before, and significantly reduce the risk of improper medication use in these critical settings."

The Mercy Method is just one example of how experts at Children's Mercy are making the use of medications in children safer and more effective. Working alongside Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the Pediatric Trials Network (PTN), the clinicians at Children's Mercy apply the latest research and data to more accurately inform pediatric treatment and medication dosing, providing valuable new information about medical treatments of children to regulators and pediatricians.

Clinical investigators from Children's Mercy are presenting more than 35 studies at the 2013 Pediatric Academic Societies meeting.
