Who is James Broselow?
James Broselow is an American emergency physician, an assistant professor, an inventor and an entrepreneur. He and fellow emergency physician Robert Luten, M.D., are best known in the medical community for inventing the Broselow Tape in 1985, which was the first tool developed relating a pediatric patient’s height to his/her weight in order to “determine the size of equipment, supplies, and dosages of medication to use…” during emergencies. The Broselow Tape is featured in many medical textbooks and reference manuals as the standard for length based weight measures.
Currently, Broselow serves as the chief medical officer of eBroselow, LLC, a company he co-founded in 2009 that has developed the Artemis solution, an electronic and digital drug dosing and tracking system and medical device for emergency medical services and emergency rooms. The company’s mission is to save lives by simplifying acute care while reducing medical errors. He is also a Clinical Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine, where he explores, develops and communicates about new approaches to pediatric emergency medicine.
