Dose Chex

Dose Chex on the App Store
Dose Chex helps you calculate drug dose and administer medication safely. By removing steps at which human error can affect the administration process it aids patient safety. Dose Chex has been designed by a senior NHS nurse with over 25 years experience in acute adult nursing and critical care.
Dose Chex is customisable. The concentrations in the suspensions and critical care sections can be altered to match what you need in your day-to-day practice.

Suspensions and solutions

Suspensions and solutions may be prescribed by dose or by volume of the solution. Dose Chex allows you to select the strength of the solution and then enter the prescribed dose or volume. The instructions for administration are shown immediately at the bottom of the screen.
