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

good news is that we are the only college of pharmacy in the nation

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

gone unfilled for a number of years. Hopefully, they can expand their
offerings along the same ingenious lines."
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."
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
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
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'."

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."
