"Anti Malaria Guide" Or A-MG Is a simple application whose purpose is to facilitate the calculation of the dosage of antimalarial drugs in emergency situations.
It can be used by all health workers.
Malaria is a serious disease and its management must be rapid.
This application have 3 parts:
-A page intended for the calculation of anti-malarial agents commonly used as artesunate 20 mg combined with lumefantrine 120 mg, artemether injection, quinine injection ;
-A page for calculating the dosage of solutes commonly used in case of severe malaria: paracetamol injection, Ringer lactates to rehydrate if necessary, the serum glucose 10% in case of hypoglycemia, diazepam in case of convulsion.
The basics of calculating dosages:
