Critical pediatric dosing errors often occur during crisis situations.

Certa Dose® is dedicated to changing these alarming statistics.

  • Medical professionals can incorrectly dose patients up to 39% of the time.¹

  • Critical dosing errors are three times more likely to occur in children than adults.²
     

The Certa Dose® epinephrine 1 mg/mL IM/SC syringe is FDA-cleared.

  • Independent simulated studies suggest that color-coded dosage delivery systems may significantly reduce critical dosing errors.³ ⁴  

  • Color-coded dosing is intuitive—easy to learn, teach, and use. 

  • The color on the Certa Dose® epinephrine syringe matches the widely adopted Standard Pediatric Color Coding System for Weight. 

  • Certa Dose® 0.3 mL epinephrine syringe complies with Check & Inject for Basic Life Support (BLS) providers.
