FEEDBACK


"I have been working with this program for a month now and I love it. It has helped me a lot. My nursing classmates love it too. We all gather around my PDA to learn, it is very easy to use and very informative. Keep making these great programs."
- Murmur Wizard™ user, Linda Hall, Nursing Student

"I've been using the Stethographics program on my PDA to auscultate my patients heart and lung sounds. Most of the time I am able to get good readings of the heart and lungs and sometimes see things that other doctors on my team don't hear. The best part is showing the patients what their heart sounds look like! They are fascinated with the program, especially the pediatric patients.
I wish I could streamline the program so it didn't involve pushing so many buttons to save and switch from the lung to heart program. What might help is the use of lung and heart icons on top of the screen so I could just tap and switch.
I will be doing a Cardiology rotation next and look forward to more practice using my PDA Stethographics program to auscultate the different murmurs and see what the visual display looks like. It'll be a real learning experience for me.
Keep up with the good work."

"I have ordered 2 (Handheld) STG systems with the Cardionics E-Scope II. I demonstrated it using the desktop version. It is great and the faculty loves it. Thank you very much for your help and the good news is that we are the only college of pharmacy in the nation that is accredited for cardiology residency and will be using this product. Thanks again to you and to your team."

“ The use of the 16 channel STG systems for the analysis of acoustic information from the thorax offers a cost effective and very innovative approach to rapid non-invasive diagnostics of diseases of the chest.”

"I am glad to see that others are thinking beyond the bounds of old models when so much technology has changed. I have a hard time believing that our current stethoscopes based on a more than one hundred year old design are really the best we can do."
- Handheld STG user, M.D.

"...Handheld Stethograph is an excellent medical tool that I use all the time with my patients. During the pre-anesthetic visits, I use the machine with my anesthesioligist, which allows us to hear and record the respiratory patterns and select the best anesthetic drugs to prevent respiratory complications and side effects during and after the surgery..."

"I've been using the STG with the rapid heart rate setting to listen to babies' hearts in the newborn nursery. It works really well and all the doctors and new parents are amazed with the visual display!"

"Stethographics offers a unique product set that has gone unfilled for a number of years. Hopefully, they can expand their offerings along the same ingenious lines."

"I am a second year PA student and I purchased this teaching CD to better help familiarize myself on heart and lung sounds. I found the CDROM overall to be very helpful. Of particular interest was the lung sound 3D model and case studies. After doing the tutorial, I was able to get every case correct! I found the 3D model to be particularly useful."
- A Simplified Introduction to Heart & Lung Sounds user, Jennifer Whiteley

"The pocket PC lung sounds is a very useful tool. I use it to demonstrate the relation between lung diseases and their corresponding lung sounds in the newborn baby to midwives in training. The sounds are not well transmitted using the Ipaq loudspeaker but excellent simulation is obtained via simple earphones. The midwives find this program an excellent practical introduction to the recognition of various lung diseases in babies. Of
course a more specific program including the sounds and cries of ill babies e.g. grunting, hoarse cry, whooping cough that can be heard without the use of a stethoscope would be a welcome addition."

- STG for Pocket PC user, H.M. Berger, Lecturer in pediatrics

"I use the lung sounds module to introduce Clinical Nurse Practitioner faculty and students in the Western Cape Province of South Africa to what they will be hearing when we round on patients in our 1400 bed hospital. Because the course I teach is bedside clinical diagnosis using questions as tests and patients' answers and physical findings as test results, it is possible to diagnose the causes of dyspnea and chest pain, among other syndromes, accurately, reliably, quickly, and cheaply. Being able to attune their ears and minds to real lung sounds prior to bedside sessions enables my adult learners to draw the necessary pathophysiologic and diagnostic inferences when they then complete the refined clinical assessment of their patients. In addition, the capacity to allow many learners to hear these lung sounds out loud at the same time greatly facilitates the dissemination of these skills as opposed to the inefficient practice of showing one or two learners at a time on live patients. I also welcome the opportunity to be able to discuss and replay these sounds within a group, knowing that we are all hearing the same thing and can get on with the business of discussing what it means diagnostically rather than getting bogged down in issues like who heard what, where, and when. Bedside 'eurekas' are my students' reward and excellent efficient clinical care is their patients'."

"It is a very good learning tool for the students, Nurses and Doctors. … Congratulation for this excellent Media."
- Introduction to Heart Sounds user, Dr. Ghulam Sarwar Mirza

"I am a Nurse Practitioner student and the Intro to Heart Sounds program has proven very useful both in class and in the clinical setting. I can't believe how realistic the heart tones are with my earphones! My classmates pass my PocketPC around in class just to listen! Thank you so much for creating this very useful program."

“Excellent learning tool. Sounds were very realistic when I used the headphones.”

“Very good. I enjoyed it a lot. I will use it for my students.”
