Androscope i-stethos Advanced Electronic Stethoscope is as cool as a medgadget can get. Based on the Androsonix biological sound sensor technology from Quebec-based Andromed Inc., this stethoscope allows auscultation of cardiac and pulmonary sounds from across the room, even in noisy environments like ER. What’s more is that this electronic stethoscope can be coupled to a PDA:
With the i-stethos stethoscope and STG software from Stethographics, you can once again use your stethoscope as a diagnostic tool. Furthermore, the HP iPAQ 5550 PC diagnostic solution will increase your productivity by conveniently archiving heart and lung information for future review.
See the benefits and clinical indications section for more information on this exciting new way to capture, display, store and transmit heart and lung sounds.
The Stethographics (STG) for hp iPAQ or PC captures, displays, replays, and analyzes chest sounds. It provides objective evidence as a complement to normal auscultation:
— Waveform and time expanded waveform displays
— Phonocardiogram display
— Automated counting of wheezes, rhonchi, fine and coarse crackles
— Longitudinal studies
— Email ready, enabling clinician to obtain a second opinion or to archive recordings
According to this press release from Northwestern University, the Androsonix technology-based Androflow™ system is undergoing perioperative conscious sedation clinical trials.
