Broselow-Luten Color Coding system (B-LPS)
The Broselow Pediatric Emergency Tape is one piece of the Broselow-Luten Color Coding system (B-LPS) that helps nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians to administer medicine and use various sizes of medical equipment on children according to their approximate weight and height. The Broselow tape is the first step in determining the proper dosage of medication and/or equipment to use on the child. The tape is laminated and color coded. The color coding is present in all charts and medical booklets included in the kit.
