The noise-cancelling stethoscope offers plenty of features that help doctors accurately assess their patients.
For many doctors and healthcare professionals, the humble stethoscope is essential and probably the most used clinical device in a consultation room. However, one company is looking to make the stethoscope even more useful.
Eko Health has developed the CORE Digital Stethoscope to add more functionality to this timeless device. Active Noise Cancellation means the sounds are clear, and it offers seven levels of amplification (up to 40x) so nothing will be missed.
One of the key assets of the CORE Digital Stethoscope is the software. Pressing a button on the stethoscope can allow it to start recording sounds. The recordings stream directly to the app. They can be saved and safely shared with other doctors. Visual representations of heart sounds(Phonocardiograms) can be streamed directly to the app so that unusual sounds such as murmurs can be viewed in real-time.
There is also an option to use artificial intelligence to help with diagnosis and the ability to live stream for telemedicine consultations. Purists can also use the stethoscope in analogue mode if they wish to. The innovative features packed into the stethoscope will help doctors accurately assess and diagnose patients.
