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.
