Children’s Resuscitation Emergency Drug Dosage (CREDD) Education

The educational service known as STORK (Simulation Training Optimising Resuscitation for Kids), in collaboration with the CREDD team, have developed the following educational resources to familiarise clinicians with CREDD.

CREDD is a weight-based equipment and medication guide intended for use by clinicians managing critically unwell children during the initial stages of resuscitation. It contains information on the recommended dosing, preparation and delivery of drugs administered in a wide range of paediatric emergencies. It has been developed by a multidisciplinary team of Queensland clinicians and pharmacists with emergency, paediatric, paediatric intensive care and retrieval expertise.

Why use CREDD?

By eliminating the need for calculations, CREDD reduces the cognitive burden at the time of resuscitation thereby limiting the potential for error and improving the speed of medication delivery.
