Certa Dose ® is Intuitive – Easy to Learn, Teach and Use
Critical dosing errors often occur during crisis situations. The Certa Dose ® Epinephrine Convenience Kit allows precise epinephrine dosing for anaphylaxis from neonate to 0.3mg and gives clinicians confidence when administering critical medications to patients. Certa Dose ® offers an intuitive system that is easy to learn, teach and use. Each syringe is labeled with easy to recognize color zones that match the widely adopted color standard pediatric color coding system for weight. Independent and simulated use studies suggest that color-code syringes may significantly reduce critical dosing errors.1,2
