Benefits about the digitalization of the information

In parallel of the stethoscope sound digitalizing device development, creation of a new service ‘Auscultation study group’. It is a platform that regroup the sound collected with stethoscope sound digitalizing device by physicians for medical education purposes.

Benefits about the digitalization of the information

The core concept of the development was to keep the shape of the traditional stethoscope, preventing modification in manipulation methods.

An investigation considering several physicians tempted to determine the key element for a performant stethoscope. This investigation showed that the chestpiece was the major factor defining the performance of the stethoscope. Therefore, the development of ‘hummingbird’ integrates the chestpiece into the device.

Not only the ‘new’ device needed to be equivalent but outclass the traditional stethoscope. Until now the act, the diagnosis and the archive were done by one physician. In the current healthcare organization, multidisciplinary care is the standard. Accordingly, the digitalized signal can be registered and shared with all the medical team. This functionality will also support the education of medical students. Moreover, the high performance of the devices will assist complicate cardiovascular disease diagnosis.

The commitment is to advance the stethoscope from the analog era to the digital era, as it was the case for the cassette to USB key or the stenographer to the smartphone, inducing a comparable strong impact on the society.

The recordings have been done with the iPhone application ‘Voice memos’. The audio quality has been
set to ‘lossless compression’. There are two different modes:
 ‘Heart Mode’ an optimized mode to hear the heart sound
 ‘Breath Mode’ an optimized mode to hear the respiratory sound
Those modes allow a high hearing quality even in noisy rooms.
The samples have been collected by a cardiologist with the permission of the patient.
