Pediatrics
Using the iPad, Pediatricians can create interactive visual guides as a way to explain complex issues and possible medical and surgical solutions for Pediatric-specific conditions and procedures, such as asthma, bronchiectasis, pneumonia, acute otitis media, tonsillitis, cellulitis, and much more.

The stamp library, which continues to grow, includes:

Airway and Lungs
Asthma
Ear Tubes
Tympanic Membrane Callout
Strep Throat
Mononucleosis
Stitches, staples, dermabond and steristrips
And More!
“Communication is key to fostering a strong and growing relationship with pediatric patients and their families. Relaying complex medical concepts about both acute and chronic illnesses is a daily part of what Pediatricians do, and drawMD is an extremely useful tool to teach and guide families and their children.

Not only hearing about but also “seeing” their illness through illustrations that are constructed right in front of the patient can be very important to a family’s understanding and subsequent compliance with treatment. Having an app like this makes each patient encounter much more worthwhile and effective. My patients have been very receptive and even thankful for the insights that drawMD helped me communicate to them,” says Dr. Jessica K. Kutikov, Pediatrician in Voorhees, NJ.
