A new visually augmented stethoscope could make it easier for hard-of-hearing medical professionals to detect heart and lung irregularities.
The stethoscope is compatible with most hearing aids and can amplify the sound of the scope by more than 30 times that of a conventional scope. It also features a visual display which helps the user to locate the various sounds of the cardiac cycle, and murmurs and defects of the lungs are also easily detectable. The data can be downloaded and enlarged for closer study, as well as saved and recalled--creating more in-depth patient records.
