Futuremed kicked off this morning at NASA’s Ames Research Park and all the attendees will be getting copies of Thinklabs Medical‘s iMurmur 2 and Heart Record apps for iPhone and iPad. iMurmur is a valuable application for learning heart murmurs and other cardiac sounds, while Heart Record is a non-clinical app that uses the iPhone as a basic electronic stethoscope.
To coincide with Futuremed, our friends at Thinklabs decided to give away the apps for free, since most of you will not able to attend the exclusive event. You’re hearing it first here, so be sure to get them this week while they’re free. Here’s more about the apps with download links further down:
iMurmur uses real patient recordings to provide authentic heart sounds so that learners know how real patients sound, rather than mere simulations. The App includes reference waveforms, diagrams and educational material, and is designed as a quick mobile reference for medical students, residents, teaching faculty, and practicing clinicians. iMurmur is also a valuable tool in nursing and EMT communities. The App can be used on Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad platforms.
Heart Record is a fun, recreational App for non-clinical use that turns the iPhone into a consumer electronic stethoscope. Heart sounds can be captured, displayed and emailed – a terrific way for lay users to listen to the heart without a stethoscope.
Heart Record is a consumer version of Thinklabs Stethoscope App, a professional sound recorder with multi-touch user interface, real phonocardiographic waveform display, email and annotation capability, and many other features. Stethoscope App provides live sound recording from Thinklabs Digital Stethoscopes, enabling clinicians to capture patient heart and lung sounds at the bedside or office for EMR, research, second opinion, telemedicine, and educational use.
Thinklabs is the first company to provide an electronic stethoscope with connectivity for recording and display of heart and lung sounds on the Apple iPhone and iPad.
