Drug Infusion - IV Medications App Reviews

53 add

useful, but could be better

Ok for 99 cents, but application is a bit clunky. The generic dose calculator is okay, but the drug specific one is a bit buggy. The app continuously reverts units to ml/min for drug rate calculations which is very annoying as most pumps are programmed in ml/hr. It also defaults dose calculations to mcg/kg/min which is not always appropriate. It would be smarter if each drug has a appropriate default unit. For drugs, common standard concentrations are offered, but doesnt remember the last one you use. It always reverts to the top of the list of concentrations.

No decimal point

Why this app doesnt have a decimal point on the calculator pad is bizarre. Seems to me the previous version had one.

Dont waste your dollar

Not worth it

Crashes! Dont buy

App will crash with drug selection! Still has not been fixed by the developer and this has been an ongoing problem in reviews for months!

Does not work!

Should have followed advice of other reviewers. App crashes when trying to open drug portion of app!

No desire to fix decimal

They claim they are working on it. Come on - how many years does it take to add the decimal ???


Crashes when trying to open drug list


I just purchased this product and it crashes every time I try to open drug section!!! For a paid app this is unacceptable.

Drug Section crashes!!

Have a iPhone 6p and it crashes on the drug calculations mode. Whats up with your software!!

No decimal point no buy

No decimal point in mg/kg. The reason I downloaded. Put in a decimal point on key pad and Ill revise my Review until then its very limited use recommend dont buy!

Drug Infusion

Drug Infusion is straightforward and easy to use. It will be my go to app for all my in OR and ICU drug infusion calculations!


I just downloaded this gem, and just in time! A friend of mine volunteers with Medical Teams International, and to make a long story short. His small team to Haiti ran into a HUGE demand for services, in particular some OR procedures where drip-rates for many different body sizes and types were needed. It was stressful! I cant wait to show him my new GEM... not only a time saver but a life saver! I cant count how many times I have caught errors from my hand calculations... the accuracy and speed is its best feature. Good looking, data entry is intuitive, and very easy to use. Thanks iAnesthesia! You guys are producing some great products!

Solid App

Quick and to the point, Drug Infusion is the fastest way to accurately double check math before giving a medication to a patient.

My Go To App

Out of all the calculators for the iPhone, this is the best app for checking medication related math. Clean interface makes it extremely easy to use.


Great app for drip calcs. I use it often to double check other staff and to do my own meds. It rocks for ED, ICU or on the transport team.

Quick to confirm rates!!

A young co-worker recommended this app for me...working nights, fatigued & over-worked...I dont always have the time to find the info needed quickly at hand....Now I do! Easy to read at night in dim lighting...I highly recommend this app for the busy critical care nurse.


What about dosage ranges? Initiation and maintanence? Whats the point if you still have to go to another source to look up dosage?

Do not buy

Wrong calculation results. Beware, it can kill your patient!! For those that dont believe me: try to input a dopamine drip calculation--> concentration = 400mg in 250ml, 150lb patient at 5mcg/kg/min. The results comes out 0.213 ml/min. You better off with Medcal (its Free) atleast, it gives you the correct calculation.

You are wrong EMS medic

That is the correct calculation. This should only be a quick verification reference. People die when you depend on technology to do the work for you. If you work for EMS, you shouldnt have time for this. If so, somethings definitely wrong with this picture.


By far the best infusion app Ive ever used.
