The P e & DVT dx tool app incorporates a clinician's pretest probability via the Wells DVT score to help make decisions on whether or not to order a D-dimer or imaging. The app offers one algorithm for DVT diagnosis and two algorithms for P e diagnosis. The app makes it easy to go through these algorithms based on what you're evaluating and gives the option to view the algorithms on one page via a large diagram. The new addition is the evaluation of a pulmonary embolism in a pregnant patient. This is based on a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in October 2018, by Righini M, et al., "Diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism During pregnancy: A multicenter Prospective Management Outcome Study." As usual, Steinberg does a great job of providing all the references, as well as detailed explanations. Win!
