Is Superhero Treatment Necessary?
When Supermom Takes Action
Follow these guidelines for children's dosage of Tylenol and Ibuprofen usage
Refer to these charts [English | Spanish] when considering giving Ibuprofen or Tylenol to your child. Give the weight appropriate dosage as referenced, or follow the dosing guidelines on the bottle. Consult a physician with any questions. To find a doctor, or answers to your health questions, call 24/7 at (816) 751-3000.
Never give your child Aspirin for a fever. You can use acetaminophen (Tylenol®) or ibuprofen (Advil® or Motrin®). In fact, you can give your child both, just not together. You will need to alternate them every three hours for difficult to control fever. The medicines will not interfere with each other. They will not cause additional side-effects.
If the fever continues for 48 hours, have your child checked by a medical professional.
The National Pediatric Readiness Project represents a national initiative sponsored by the federal Emergency Medical Services for Children Program (EMSC) to ensure that emergency departments are ready to care for children. ERs were asked to take an assessment regarding available resources for the care of children and received a score based on a 100 point scale. All of HCA Midwest Health's ERs exceed the national average score.
* HCA Midwest Health hospitals collectively treat, on average, nearly 25,000 children annually under the age of 18.
