Regardless of what scope of obstetrics care you provide, a good OB wheel app is a must.
With so many different OB apps available, which one should we use?
OB Wheels is a redo of the venerable OB Wheel, an excellent medical app designed to assist providers in dating pregnancies and adjusting for sonographic data.
The app consists of three main sections: a calculator based on last menstrual period or estimated date of delivery; a “virtual cardboard” old-school OB wheel that you can adjust with your fingers; and a reconciliation guide that presents the most current ACOG Bulletin on dating pregnancies.
The initial version of this app from 2 years ago was disappointing due to interface issues; this new version is simple to use and accurate. Although it lacks patient tracking capabilities, it is still a great first choice for a basic OB wheel app. It now also includes the latest ACOG dating guidelines.
- Simple, quick, and accurate interface; improved from original
- Multiple methods of dating included (latest ACOG), even a virtual OB wheel
- Available for Android
- Virtual OB wheel is difficult to manipulate and not responsive to user input
- No patient tracking capabilities
- No hyperlinks for references
