Pediatric Emergency Standards, Inc. (“PES”) does not make clinical or medical decisions. User’s use of the Handtevy Materials (the “Materials”) is not a substitute for its hiring and employment of competent, properly trained and knowledgeable staff that bring professional judgment and analysis to use of the Materials. It is the responsibility of User, its employees and contractors to exercise independent medical knowledge in making medical decisions on a case-by-case basis, and the Materials are intended to be used only as a guide. The term “User” means the buyer of the Materials, and its officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives and contractors.
The Materials are user-agnostic, and: (i) are based on established industry standards and/or nationally recognized guidelines for the treatment of children in the emergency medical context; (ii) are based on the experience of reputable, thought-leader institutions; and/or (iii) are supported by peer-reviewed clinical literature; AND (iv) are not sourced from or funded by pharmaceutical or other companies with a commercial interest in the content; AND (v) will be continuously updated by PES if established industry standards and nationally recognized guidelines evolve. PES has assembled the materials from third party sources. In so doing, PES has exercised reasonable due diligence and professional judgment in evaluating and selecting the Materials for inclusion.
The Materials must be customized by User prior to use based on its guidelines, protocols, drug options, drug concentrations, drug dosages, equipment size and other applicable factors (the “Customized Materials”). User must continuously ensure the accuracy of the Customized Materials based on changes to its guidelines, protocols, drug options, drug concentrations, drug dosages, equipment size and changes in nationally recognized guidelines. PES highly recommends prompt revision and updating of the Customized Materials to accommodate changes.
Furthermore, the age of a child may be used to determine a child's weight ONLY in children of average size. PLEASE NOTE that a length-based tape SHOULD be used on children of short or tall stature, or those with chronic illnesses.
